Although Beer snobs may turn their nose up at Budweiser there is a reason the brand dates back over a century, and tapping into the creative minds at HEXX since January 2016 the Anheuser-Busch Corporation has showed a great deal of market insight by creating a family-friendly venue for tourists and locals to watch sports or simply sit back with a cold one overlooking the Bellagio Fountains.
Built for fans based on input from fans, televisions at every angle showing a diversity of sports and major events as well as Golden Knights games presented complete with sound, it is in the shadow of Paris’ Eiffel Tower that guests will find the expansive outdoor environment, entertainment options including foosball and shuffle board recently joining Jenga, Uno and Cards Against Humanity at the tables.
Now offering Brunch, a 9:00am opening on weekends that will align perfectly with College Football kickoff come August, it was just past 10:30am on Sunday that the Restaurant was found only part full, speakers bumping 90s hip-hop at a volume too loud while a staff of young men and women offered excellent customer service even after the place got packed around noon.
Originally built on the work of Chefs Piekarski and Silverman plus Pitmaster Eddie Manukyan, the addition of Carlos Buscaglia and former HEXX Pastry Chef Carol Garcia helping tweak old items as well as eight Brunch-only creations, it was beginning with three Fruit-forward Cocktails plus one Michelada that Brunch was underway, an eleven year old sipping Dr. Pepper quickly conquering his elders at Connect Four and later in Cards.
Focusing largely on Brunch but also items added since last visit, a generous Cheesesteak for just $13.95 showing off Eddie’s skills by placing finely shaved smoked Beef beneath melted Cheese and sweet Onions, it was while indulging in two styles of Fries that Beer Park’s “Hangover Breakfast” was presented, the innovative Brioche Bun with a Pretzel finish standing up well to a runny Egg, Mayo, Cheese and Veggies though thick-cut Bacon and slightly overcooked Chicken compromised the Sandwich’s ability to be cut using provided silverware.
Next receiving an entirely new Pretzel, the “Soft Twist” still suggested on Beer Park’s menu replaced by a fried braid that eats unexpectedly light despite being brushed with Butter, it was with every bite gone and a bit of Beer Cheese leftover that a Breakfast Burrito arrived, the nearly one-pound specimen easily sharable by two hungry adults and boldly spiced with Chorizo and smoky Salsa that is reined in by Eggs, Cheese and Sour Cream.
Seemingly offering Avocado Toast as an obligation, though $9.95 for a good-sized portion with Eggs and Feta is a great deal compared to many, it was alongside this that Smoked Salmon and French Toast were served, the former not made on-site but nonetheless good with its accoutrements while the later performed well with or without Syrup thanks to Almond Brittle and Honey Butter.
Less sold on Smoked Brisket Hash, only some of the Potatoes “crispy” and Peppers overwhelming Protein, it was instead the oversized PB&J Sandwich that took center stage to finish, both it and the Granola Parfait bright with Fruit and lots of texture though the addition of Bacon and Bananas to the Sandwich moves it from something simple to a dish that should be served with “Viva Las Vegas” playing in the background.
FOUR AND A HALF STARS: Never a Beer drinker, but forever a sports fan and proponent of places serving good Food, it is fantastic news for both tourists and locals with children that Beer Park now offers brunch, and aside from overly loud music the combination of fair pricing, portions and quality is excellent.
RECOMMENDED: Grand Slam Peacharita, Smoked Prime Rib Cheesesteak, Fried Pretzel, Breakfast Burrito, PB&J Sandwich, Granola Parfait.
AVOID: Smoked Brisket Hash needs a bit more finesse to let the Meat show.
TIP: See the Website for a list of upcoming events including Knights watch parties, Electric Brunch and more.
