About 29 Brews
Located in the new Taproom 29 eatery in Spotlight 29 Casino, 29 Brews is a sophisticated in-house brewery that serves up a selection of 29 craft and flavored beers, poured at a continuous 29 degrees and served on stunning wraparound ice-rail at the bar. In addition to the 29 Brews house beers, the brew master rotates 15 of his 29 total tap handles on a regular basis, offering both beer enthusiasts and casual beer fans with an array of world-class options which are always changing. Taproom 29 has the luxury of pouring an eclectic portfolio of constantly changing suds, often changing as many as six different beers in any given week.
The brewery’s top-selling craft beer is Chairman’s Blonde, named after Tribal Chairman Darrell Mike. This gorgeous Blonde is crisp, clean, and perfectly balanced. Brewmaster Ed refers to is as a “simple, straightforward SMASH beer.” Another favorite is Rez Rage Red, an India Pale Ale that has notes of caramel, toffee and even a hint of rye, providing complex rich, deep malty layers. 29 Brew’s Tipsy Tortoise IPA is a wonderful example of a piney and citrusy unfiltered IPA. Grapefruit and pinecone forward, this beer hits your nose and palate with a powerful cascade of citrus. Peabody’s Russian Imperial Stout is described as “darker than the Joshua Tree night sky,” featuring a decadent, rich, complex, and intense flavor profile of chocolaty goodness.
