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.

GPS overshot - pub is in a building complex not too visible from highway. Decor is fairly modern. Good beers. Good food. Very cheerful service.

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

Went there in August of 2007, 10 weeks after they opened. The place is very modern, with lots of hues of red. Ordered the sampler that day, on a quiet afternoon. Service was very attentive, and got a few extra samplers and a visit of the brewer. Brewer used to work at Flossmoor Station. Decent food menu.

8/17/07. Arrived here on a Friday evening with grant for dinner at about 630pm. Was a bit of a challenge to find, but thankfully they town is small. Parking is challenging, so beware. Upon walking in, there are scattered tables with some TVs and the bar is on the right. We sat on the patio, which is rather large. It seemed pretty dead and there were lots of employees just standing around doing not much of anything. The decor was some mix of a lodge-industrial type setting. The bathrooms were clean and without grafitti. We both ordered the sampler platters of beer. Our server was pretty inattentive. She was also wearing these god-awful wrinkled transparent pink pants. She was wearing horizontally-striped green and white underwear. Normally, this would be hot, but this girl wasn’t overly attractive and this is a family oriented brewpub. She also said that their Dubbel had no hops at all in it and their Amarillo IPA was brewed with "yellow hops". The meatloaf that I ordered was relatively dry and lacked flavor. It was kind og like a big meatball. The potatoes and squash/zukes were good, though. I will probably go back because it is new and there are lots of kinks to iron out. Hopefully things will get changed. (4/2/6/4/na/8 40)---Just visited this place again. I was again underwhelmed with this place. It was mostly empty and there was about a dozen patrons at the bar. The bartender was incredibly inept, and I overheard him saying how incredibly busy it was. As someone who has worked in the industry, I find this incomprehensible. I also find it inexcusable that he failed to acknowledge me for over 5 minutes while sitting at the bar. I go the spinach dip, which was pretty decent, but nothing spectacular. The only redeeming part of this visit is that they had their Imperial Stout on tap, which is the pre-barrel aged Eclipse. Anyway, I don’t know why so many people have such a hard-on for this place. The beers are mostly average, the service is abysmal, and the food is just passable.

i always wish for a bigger selection of thir BA offereings (there’s usually 2 erased with one left). Service can be maddeningly slow, even when they’re half empty. Beers are solid, but only the BA stuff stands out. Still, definitely worth a stop in Tahoe...

I stopped in on my way to Reno. The bartender was very friendly and I talked to the brewer’s brother for a bit. The ambiance is like a fusion of ski lodge meets contemporary. They seem to have a strong local following. I did not eat, but the food looked good. The beers I tried were excellent. Make sure you have a map or GPS, this place is hard to find.

This small brewery is located in a small mall a mile from the old town. There is a nice bar with a doen stools, boasting 14 active taps covering a wide range of styles. There is also table seating for about 50. The barkeep is helpful and friendly. There is popular music playing in the background, but not too noisy, and two wide screen TVs showing sport events. The menu is mostly bar food, but quite extensive. The french dip sandwich with fries was excellent, and the rest room was large and clean.

Stopped in last summer with nearly my entire family. Had a nice dinner sitting out in the heat of the spacious patio. Pretty good sampler with seven decent sized glasses. House beers were all solid, except the concentrated evil, which was too herbal and sweet. Had firestone walker velvet merkin on as a guest beer, which was a pleasant surprise. Pretty cool setup inside with a big chalkboard of brews above some stacked oak barrels holding what I think was their imperial stout. Friendly staff and good service. The food was pretty solid. I got a seared ahi BLT which sounded a litle odd at first, but I love seared ahi and this was actually really good. I*m definitely making a point of stopping by whenever I am up at Tahoe from now on.

Visited after a day of skiing. The building looked pretty nice on the outside and inside. Six tap selections of their own beer and other craft beer taps as well. The food was pretty good. Everyone in our party got something different and it was highly regarded. I was hoping that they would have more than six of their beers to try in a sampler, but oh well.
