Wanted to check this place out, since someone had gone through the trouble of adding it to the RB database, and because Iím ceaselessly curious, and because Iím bored out of my gourd in Sparks. Decent stop, tucked in a shopping area off McCarran a few miles north of 80, and at the very least a place that offers and supports craft beer. The skinny: Macros, SNPA through Dos Equis and Fat Tire, plus Black Butte Porter, Alaskan Amber and IPA, Franziskaner (although tasted a bit gone, like cardboard stale), Icky from local Great Basin, Anchor Steam, etc. Nothing even remotely difficult to come across in other locations, and it seems like they donít cycle through some of it very often (we saw others drinking bluish mixed drinks out of fishbowls...). At least they had some locals, including both canned offerings from Buckbean, and solid beers generally. Theyíre trying.
