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.

Cool little building with a lodge type feel to it. The food was pretty good and they had about a dozen beers on tap including 2 eclipse beers. I got there early so seating at the bar was easy and the bartender was helpful in getting me something to scribble my notes on. As dinner rolled around, the place was packed. I had a chance to talk to Todd for a few minutes and one of the brewers, Eugene. Both were very friendly and answered my questions. Next time Iím in Reno, Iíll look to make the drive out to FiftyFifty.

This place was nearby our rental and was recommended for good food from a local friend-of-a-friend. Canít complain about the food, the pizza was good (average at best) and the green chile soup was also pretty solid (a little above average). The beer was so-so of the two I tried. I only tried two because it took 15+ minutes to place a drink order, another 20+minutes to get the drink, another 20+ minutes to get the food, then another 30+ minutes to get all the condiments in order before being able to take a second drink order. Needless to say the redhead server sucked hard. That patio looked pretty stellar though and one guy I was with was raving about some salad he got.

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.

This brew pub had an OK ambiance. The selection of beers was a little limited with only 6 on tap when I was there and two of those were similar versions of their Imperial Stout. The food was good, but a bit expensive as it always seems to be in resort areas.

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.

We try to get to this place every summer when we are over on the Westshore; how I wish it (or we) were closer! Excellent service, a nice selection of solid brews, and above average for food. Stopped by for a growler fill on our way over to the Westshore, and then went over for an early happy hour later in the week for a beer and appetizers. They always have guest taps, but I tend to stick with the housebrews. By far, the last one I had, the Donner Party Porter, was the best. They appear to have a loyal, local clientele also, which is always a good sign.

I stopped in on my way to Reno. The bartender was very friendly and I talked to the brewerís 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.

Sunday afternoon stop in July and once we past there near empty inside seating, I was happy to sit in the warm sun and notice that Eclipse was on the board; no food was ordered, but menu and passing dishes looked pretty tasty; staff was enjoyable except for the obligatory directions for drinking my sampler; beers were all above average IMO and quite tasty, including the Foggy Goggle; after some back and forth the waitress brought me some bonus samples of the just tapped Golden Ale and non-BA Imperial Stout; nice new "old" architecture and overall a great stop on my way to the lake; highly recommended
