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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
