A nice place, lots of wood. Service was slow and not really friendly, prices were high but the beer is great. It wouldnít take much more to make this a great stop. The wings are great!

Given what this brewery is doing with their beer, I understand why people come here. And it doesnít take a lot to impress me from a service standpoint, but here it was far below average. No one even talked to me for 20 minutes and then it took quite a while to get the one barrel aged they actually had brought to the table. It was a good beer, but not memorable. The food was quite good. I wouldnít come back unless I happened to be nearby. The 50 minute drive wasnít worth it.

Finally made it here. Really nice location in Truckee in a shopping area with lots of other restaurants and bars. Smallish interior with a nice patio area. Had an impressive lineup of the regular beers (blonde, pale, IPA, etc.) as well as a number of seasonals and three barrel aged beers. Food here was excellent, the service was great, and the beers were quite good on the whole as well. It was a bit of a drive from South Lake Tahoe, but well worth it.

Nice looking place just outside of the very cute town of Truckee, CA. Service is very good. People are genuinely nice and like conversation. Good selection of a variety of their beers. It has a full bar as well.

Stopped in for a couple beers: Highland Session and Charles on the rye. They were fine. I just had some fries, which were good, but Iím not going to rate food off of a plate of fries. The service was prompt and good. The value pretty standard. They had 14 of their own on tap with some interesting looking barrel aged versions. Worth stopping in if youíre trucking through Truckee.

wheresyourball  (44) El Cajon, California | February 18, 2013
Stopped in over Presidents Day weekend, for lunch. Hostess and servers acted like they were high... bizarre. Slow and not all that friendly. Food was average; there was no Eclipse on tap, but I was able to try a few others. No bottled beer for sale, just growlers. Overall a slight letdown but not a bad place.

Food is good and many of their beers are great. Everything else is lacking; irksome. Disinterested service was the hallmark from the bartender, to the server, and the hostess. I was spending $200 on bottles and glassware and still was made to feel that I was hassling the staff at every turn. One of the glasses I was sent home with had an obvious glass defect and never should have been sold. Make sure you inspect anything you buy before you leave. The restaurant is run like a tourist trap, staff makes zero effort to connect with the customer. Love the Eclipse on draft.

Stopped in about 4 on a Wednesday, just a few locals in. Pulled pork sandwich with fries was great. Green chile soup has no cilantro which is a huge plus. Delicious. Menu has good variety. Brews I had: Belgian Lipstick, Saison du Prick, Trifecta Tripel, Rockslide IPA, Donner Pass Porter- all solid. Sampler is $6 for 5/ 3oz samples. They had one beer bottled, although they had various versions: 22oz Eclipse stout aged in various bourbon barrels and some were even previous vintage. A must stop if youíre in the area. Our server, Efrain, was very nice and filled our water bottles for the road which was MUCH appreciated.

Friendly staff, good food and great beer. It's never overly crowded and they have a couple TVs with sports. I really enjoy this place and try to make sure I stop in every time I am in North Shore Tahoe. I wish prices were a bit cheaper but it is a resort town. I also would like to see more Eclipse on tap but they usually have at least one barrel aged offering on tap.

A really nice brewpub, which is about as far off the beaten path as you can get. Honestly you could roll right through Truckee and never know this was here.Came for drinks in the middle of the afternoon, no Eclipse variants on, but Totality was, and so was a BART variant, so that was perfectly okay. Going in I really only knew this place for the Eclipse, but their other beers, especially the California Pale, were a nice surprise. Didnít eat, but the menu looked pretty good, service was average, prices were about what I expected. Bought a couple bottles of BART and hit the road. I will definitely be back.
