Company History


Sin City Brewing Co. is a Las Vegas-based microbrewery launched by long-time Gordon Biersch Director of Brewing Operations Richard Johnson. Produced to satisfy both the microbrew savvy drinker and those with a preference for a traditional domestic style beer, Sin City beers accentuate the indulgent nature of Las Vegas. The beers are brewed in small batches (100 kegs at a time) using traditional methods, premium raw materials and a strict adherence to the Reinheitsgebot, the 1516 German beer purity law that differentiates Sin City beers from the big guys.

Sin City beers are brewed and distributed exclusively in Las Vegas. Sin City Brewing Co. also features a popular retail line that is available through its online store and its branded microbrew bars at Miracle Mile Shops, The Grand Canal Shoppes, Harmon Corner, and Grand Bazaar Shops on the Las Vegas Strip.

About the Brewmaster - Richard Johnson

His distinct recipes for Sin City's beers celebrate the rich tradition and art of crafting German lagers and English ales. Acclaimed for his award-winning beers, Johnson has been professionally brewing since the beginning of the craft revolution.

Johnson has created five distinct beer recipes - Sin City Amber, Sin City Light, Sin City Stout, Sin City IPA and Sin City Weisse - using traditional methods and premium raw materials. Traditional beer consumers and microbrew fans alike have celebrated the beers for their exceptional taste.
