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.

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.

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.

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.

kmweaver  (116) Petaluma, California | October 17, 2008
Nice, modernly designed brewpub in a quiet section of Truckee. Seven beers on tap when we stopped: Kolsch, Golden Ale, Pale Ale, IPA, Porter, Concentrated Evil, and Tripel. The lower ABV beers were good, but the larger beers (Tripel, Concentrated Evil) were disappointing, overly sweet. Onions wings, ribs, fish tacos, fried fish, etc. - all of the food we ordered was excellent and generous. Pints were about $4-5, samplers were $8.50. Didnít seem to have any drink specials, and their website doesnít have much information. After the sampler, ordered a pint of Kolsch and then sort of ran out of interest... Worth a stop, at least, especially for the food.

Ok this place rocks on a number of levels. First we were driving up to crash in Truckee pre burning man and we were going to probably miss the kitchen so we called ahead and they took our orders on the phone and they were ready when we got there. The pizza was really pretty damn good, both my bbq chicken and my girlfriendís vegan pizza, they messed hers up and left a cheese veggie on the table I think I ate a full large pizza myself. Michael the Bar Tender is cool, the beer was overall excellent, I just wish the impy was there for me. Great Brewery great service great attitude, yum glug yum.

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.

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.

One of our go to places when in Tahoe. Good looking place with plenty of seating and a nice bar. We have always had great service. Wide selection of solid brew and good food. Enjoyed.
