Pretty sure they do, the one in Vegas is near the Hard Rock off the strip. Looked like the same stuff when the "Girls Next Door" was in Munich...never been to Munich to try it though. They said all their beer was imported, and it was really good.

If you like wheat beer you MUST try Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat. Probably my favorite beer in the world. If you like Blue Moon, Summer Ale, or other citrusy beers I promise you will like it.
and +1 for all the Munich beer halls, they are so awesome.

so where the hell do you guys buy this stuff aside from local breweries? I've heard of a lot of the beers on Unionjack's list but haven't personally come across any of them

I need to start a beer journal to keep track of them all!

Edit: I have been wanting to try the HopDevil...I guess its good if a lot of people recommend it!
where do you live in MD? i have seen a few imola ZHPs around.. any chance one is you?

I love the beers from the highland brewery in Asheville NC especially their Gaelic ale. The oatmeal porter and St. terese ale are also great. Some other favorites are the rogue dead guy
saison dupont (for a belgian high grav)
samuel smith taddy porter
hobgoblin
smithwick's
stella artois( for when I feel like a golden lager) sorry to those diehard bud fans but I've never liked it and never will!!!! because it tastes like pissssswater.
becks, newcastle or bass are some old standbys

Now I read recently in the wall street journal about a beer from Laos called beerlao that is supposed to be creating a small buzz from tourist coming back from there and which may start to distribute elsewhere around the world so l'll be looking to try that sometime too. From what the article said the head brewer was a chick who was sent to the Czech republic to study under a well know brewmaster and came back to make a czech style beer from mostly local rice grains. Go figure a decent beer from the far east!!!

Now if you folks are ever in columbia, charlotte, raleigh, nashville, memphis, houston, fort worth, austin, san antonio, little rock or kansas city, There is a place called the flying saucer that will blow a beer lovers mind. When it first debuted here in Columbia I was astounded at the selection of beers. Definitely a must for someone who enjoys beers with real flavors. We are truly lucky to have one here!!!!!
