TV chef and restaurateur Gordon Ramsay unveiled his first Hell’s Kitchen restaurant in Las Vegas earlier this year. On the over 30-bottle strong beer list is an exclusive house beer from California’s Stone Brewing: Hell’s Kitchen Special Brew IPA.

According to Eater Las Vegas, the brewer has previously made beers for Gordon Ramsay Burger and the Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill.

Commenting on the launch of the restaurant, Gary Selesner, regional president of Caesars Palace, said: “With Gordon and his team, we created a unique dining experience based on one of the most popular shows on television. I’m very proud of what we have achieved. The room has been transformed and feels just like the set of Hell’s Kitchen, and the food and service is worthy of the Gordon Ramsay.

“The response from guests so far has been very gratifying. They are delighted with the menu and love the concept. It looks like we have another big hit on our hands. I can’t wait for everyone to try it”.

This is not the first time that Ramsay has waded into the world of beer. Last year, he defended his decision to endorse South Korean lager brand Cass, which has been branded “the worst beer in the world”.

Ramsay said he was “far from embarrassed” adding: “[Cass is] something I drank before the call [for the endorsement] came in. When I have Korean food, I don’t look for a wine list with the most expensive beer to go with it. I want a beer that‘s easy, fresh, and something I can drink without having to show off. I think that was the important thing.”

“Europeans have a very delicate palate. They’re not used to that level of spiciness, so they wouldn‘t understand the importance of cleansing and properly washing food down,” he said.
