Holsteins debuted at The Cosmopolitan when the resort opened in December 2010, at a time when a wide variety of craft beer was highly unusual on the Vegas Strip. Though they’re still not common, this casual gourmet burger eatery has established itself as a beer hangout at The Cosmo and is considered a craft beer haven that rivals any other tourist corridor in Vegas and beyond.
The room is on the second level and exudes a warm, inviting atmosphere with wooden floors, tables and walls. hanging Edison lights; Earth tones of rust, brown, and brown; a life-size pink and white Holstein cow; and numerous bizarre comic pictures of cattle and burger characters all over the room. There are several typical burgers on the menu such as the Rising Sun with dry-ripened sirloin, cheddar and
caramelized onions, starters such as fries with pork belly and togarashi, salads and fancy milkshakes.
Most of the drinks on offer are dedicated to the 24 taps and dozens more in bottles and cans, along with a somewhat secret reserve beer list with an additional 112 choices. All major beers are included, with renowned options like Founders All Day IPA, Firicke Walker Stickee Monkee Quad in barrel age, and a range of Fifty-Fifty Eclipse Imperial Stouts. Local beers aren’t left out, with Able Baker Atomic Duck IPA, Big Dog’s Las Vegas Craft Lager, CraftHaus Evocation Season, and Tenaya Creek Hop Ride IPA rounding out the selection.
The beverage program is overseen by Ivan Cuevas who said, “When it comes to our bottle / draft program, we believe that good food deserves more beer. Our extensive beer selection has been carefully selected to complement the flavorful, savory, sweet and rich flavors of our dishes. We’re a locally based company and love supporting our neighborhood brewers. Hence, you can always find some of your favorite breweries on tap. We want to portray our home state in a way that gives travelers a chance to see what the state of Nevada is brewing. “
