Nice spot as a night club with decent acts and decent food. you do have to park in the casino garage and hoof it in. As a beer place, though? not worth the trouble. calling them a craft brewer is a stretch. the best is mediocre and the bad ones are BAD.

No real surpises. Large portions of decent solid beer for cheap.
A better version of say a Pyramid or Gordon Biersch.

Nice stop in a casino. Looks like a dance club more than a beer place. The IPA was decent. If in town check it out.

This brewpub located in the El Dorado casino/hotel in Reno is definitely worth a visit. All they have are their own brews, but these are darned good, if not outstanding. The low lighting contributes to a dark, intimate atmosphere - even with the high ceiling it still seems cozy. The casino games intrude a little at the bar, but hey, this is Nevada. The bartender was friendly but not overly so and quite helpful and efficient. They had quite a few big TVs, but none had the sound on, and that helped. If you are in Reno, this is worth a visit.

My favorite beer was the IPA. The food was great and I love the Happy Hour Prices. I would like to see more seasonals.

Nothing exceptional, but it hits the spot on occasion. Tacky in a charming, renoesque way...fake beer running through ducts in the rafters. Crpwd is mixed, and can be a drag. Happy hour is good, music often is not. Silver Peak is a better choice, with better food, beer and service. In fairness, I should disclose that I worked in the Eldo. for a year and even BB on occasion.

This is a great oasis in the middle of the Casino. Walking in you get the impression of a sports bar with a number of large screens. They have about 8-9 beers on tap, a bit of something for everyone. The beers are good but nothing outstanding. The bartenders seem to know the beers quite well. The food menu has a good variety without being too large. Can’t beat the 3-6 happy hour prices with a large beer only $3. Service can be a bit spotty at times. It is fairly quiet in the afternoon but activity and volume ramps up as the evening progresses.

I certainly wasnt expecting much from this, so I wasn’t really disappointed. Dimly lit, loud, crowded, and busy. Large and cavernous. I found a place at the bar, and they had about 10 beers with a couple of them being specials. They actually had an IIPA on tap, and the bartender informed me about it partially. The service was good, and I think the prices were arbitrary. It sounded like the bartender made up the price of my pint of IIPA...$3.50. I did not have any food, so I cannot comment much on that.

Ok, ok, ok. Brewpub, garish, in a casino. And yet... This was the fourth stop of our day-long Reno/Sparks beer crawl and, of all the stops, our least-anticipated. Tucked in the overbearing El Dorado Casino, up the steps, past the information desk and the lit fountains, and the escalators, and countless goofball gamblers, is some fantastic beer. We sat at the bar, the waitstaff was attentive (if a little clueless about the beer), and pours were like, $3.50. The Double Down Stout was creamy and focused, the Jilted Lover was a solid Belgian rendition, and the IPA was just phenomenal. Did I visit the same place as everyone else? New brewer? Parallel universe? They also had four other staples and a seasonal, which we’ll be going back to try soon.
