Buzzword, buzzword, buzzword... 300 beers... buzzword is how this writer read the description. What is really unique about TAG is that you can gamble while drinking great beer served by a staff of knowledgable bartenders. Instead, there's a description of a bar that's not very unique. They have new TVs like most bars, a sports scoreboard like most bars, and digital casino games you can find all across the Vegas Strip. Where they standout is the 300 beers. What makes it even more awesome is that those 300 beers can be COMP'D if you're playing video poker.
Surely, Caesars Entertainment doesn't want everyone to know customers can get a great selection of beer for no charge, but that is really what separates TAG from most other bars on the Vegas Strip. Most of the beer bars in Vegas are just bars. There's nothing wrong with that, but gambling while drinking great beer is something special for any beer drinker in Vegas. TAG is one of the few where you can drink craft and imported beer while playing video poker.
The beer menu is so big they had to separate beer by both location and type. My goal was to have every beer from Belgium on a recent visit. That didn't happen as the alcohol content made the mission end early. That's okay, there will be more attempts.
A 24-ounce Westmalle Trappist Ale from Belgium is normally not comp'd since it's so large, but since a friend and I were both playing video poker and shared it, it became available for no additional charge. While this beer gets a 96 of 100 on Beer Advocate, I probably wouldn't get it again. It was good, but there are others.
While the giant bottle of beer was fun, most people will enjoy normal 12-ounce beers. You won't find the majority of these beers at any other bar with video poker on the Vegas Strip. If you're not a gambler you'll be happy to know that most of the 12-ounce beers are under $10. What's as impressive as the selection of beer is the fact that the staff has tried most of the beer. If the bartender hasn't tried a beer, you'll see them snag a taste by dipping a straw in the glass. Before heading out into the 110-degree heat after my recent visit, our awesome bartender Theresa recommended a combination of a grapefruit beer/soda and a shot of vodka. Whoa.
It was a strange, but awesome combination. The added flavor from the orange vodka was a citrusy blast in the mouth. Their "Hop'tails" are a combination of spirits and beer. Some of these concoctions may seem strange, but still taste great.
TAG offers such great service and quality of beer that you might think you're at a luxury hotel bar and not The Quad or The Linq Hotel or Imperial Palace -- whatever you want to call it. Craft beer is officially a "thing" and there are many bars and restaurants expanding their beer selections because of it. That's great for any beer drinker. If you dig through all of the useless buzzwords on The Quad website, you'll find TAG might be the best beer bar on the Vegas Strip. You can access TAG from inside The Quad or through the Linq promenade.
