32? Draft Bar - 96 Distinctive Ways to Quench Your Thirst
With the colder temperature sweeping into Las Vegas, what better way to warm up than with a cold one? For centuries, brewers have made seasonal beers for winter that are fuller in body and maltier than standard styles. Winter warmers have less water in the mix, delivering more nutrition and higher alcohol content than typical summer quenchers. We've got our winter beer picks straight from our Beverage Director, Mark Thomas, but before we get to the beers, we have to talk about the place where you can get the beer.
The M Resort is home to an array of unique destination bars and lounges and the 32 Degrees Draft Bar is no exception. Directly adjoining the race and sports book, this tap house is a haven for sports lovers and beer aficionados.
Taking a modern approach to the race and sports book concept, the M Resort has tapped into Las Vegas' need for a venue with a vast selection of consistently cold beer. 32 Degrees proves that no two beer drinkers are the same and a limited tap selection can no longer suffice.
The contemporary bar and lounge boasts 96 different brews, with a beer to suit any taste, mood, occasion or season. 32 Degrees pours a variety of unique ales and stouts, exceptional microbrews, classic imports and domestic favorites. Deriving its name from the optimal beer serving temperature, 32 Degrees serves up the coldest beer in Las Vegas in a vibrant, high energy atmosphere. Ample seating, just steps from the sports book floor, provides uncompromising views of all the sports and betting action.
If you want a casual place to enjoy a beer, 32 Degrees is the place. Below is our list of winter beer picks to enjoy while you're here:
New Belgium Brewery 2 Degrees Below Ale
This tasty winter warmer started life as a small batch beer brewed for the Al Johnson Uphill Downhill - a telemark ski race in Crested Butte, Colorado. Dry hopping during fermentation creates a floral nose with a hint of pepper and spicy, subtle undertones. 2 Degrees Below provides a bright, hoppy palate and a cheery warm afterglow.
Samuel Adams Winter Ale
This beer’s roots are in Belgium. The style gets its name from the white, milky appearance of this unfiltered wheat ale. On the malt side, Samuel Adams uses malted two-row Pale barley, malted wheat, and Munich malt to give this beer a crisp, malty, cereal finish and smooth mouth feel. A spice blend is added that includes orange and lemon peel, dried plum, grains of paradise, coriander, anise, hibiscus, rose hips, tamarind, and vanilla. It is this special blend of spices that gives Samuel Adams White Ale its unique character, complexity and refreshing drinkability.
Chimay Premier Red Ale
Chimay Red is noted for its coppery color which makes it particularly attractive. Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a light, fruity apricot aroma. Its taste imparts a silky sensation to the tongue and is made refreshing by a light touch of bitterness. To the palate, there is pleasant astringency, which complements the flavor qualities of this beer very harmoniously.
Tenaya Creek Nut Brown Ale
Brewed right here in Las Vegas at Tenaya Creek Brewery, the Nut Brown Ale is light brown in color and is quite malty while the hop flavor is generally lower than that of other ales.
This is a mahogany-colored, rich-tasting premium beer that has a distinctively complex taste. Because of the warmth it releases, this strong character beer must be served cool but not cold.
32 Degrees is open Sunday-Saturday, 24 hours.
