Lovelady Brewing Company
The first brewery to open in the revitalized, historic Henderson Water Street District, this family-owned and -run business was founded by four brothers (named Lovelady), one of whom (Richard) was the head brewer at Gordon Biersch for more than 20 years. The kid-friendly taproom has large windows allowing for natural lighting, several games and a dog-friendly patio that create a comfortable environment where you’ll want to spend time.
Some of Lovelady’s more popular brews, both in the tasting room and around town, are its 9th Island Pineapple Sour (tart and slightly sour, named in honor of Southern Nevada’s sizeable expat Hawaiian community), Love Juice (a hazy IPA featuring three different kinds of hops) and Paleo Porter (made with peanut butter, chocolate and coffee beans sourced from local Dark Moon Roasters).
The brewpub has the good fortune to be situated next to the very popular Juan’s Flaming Fajitas, and you can call in your order and have it delivered right to your table at Lovelady.
