Stopped in about 4 on a Wednesday, just a few locals in. Pulled pork sandwich with fries was great. Green chile soup has no cilantro which is a huge plus. Delicious. Menu has good variety. Brews I had: Belgian Lipstick, Saison du Prick, Trifecta Tripel, Rockslide IPA, Donner Pass Porter- all solid. Sampler is $6 for 5/ 3oz samples. They had one beer bottled, although they had various versions: 22oz Eclipse stout aged in various bourbon barrels and some were even previous vintage. A must stop if you’re in the area. Our server, Efrain, was very nice and filled our water bottles for the road which was MUCH appreciated.
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.
Friendly staff, good food and great beer. It's never overly crowded and they have a couple TVs with sports. I really enjoy this place and try to make sure I stop in every time I am in North Shore Tahoe.
I wish prices were a bit cheaper but it is a resort town. I also would like to see more Eclipse on tap but they usually have at least one barrel aged offering on tap.
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.
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.
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 I’m in Reno, I’ll look to make the drive out to FiftyFifty.
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. Didn’t 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.
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
