Really impressed with this place. Thee beer is top notch and they had about 20 on tap - plenty to pick from. Their sample includes 5 beers. The food is really good too - burgers, fried chicken, pasta. We were there on a Friday night and the place was jamming - live music too. Took a while to get our drinks, but understandable since they were busy. Obviously would be better to be there on a weekday afternoon and meet the brewer or talk to the bartenders.
On a Thursday 11am it was quite quiet which suited us perfectly. We got friendly service, tasty food and amazing beers. It's kid friendly place. It was a bit tricky to find as it is inside of a small strip mall kind of group of buildings. You can't see it by just driving by. 17 beers on tap. They serve flights of 5 beers (3oz each) for $11 (Eclipse is $1 more). And their Eclipse Imperial Stout versions are amazing. They had 3 different Eclipse versions on tap when we visited. I guess I was lucky.
Place was hard to find, tucked away behind other building, with no sign on the street, but we got there eventually. Typical wood-oriented interior for the region. Good selection of beers from draft, but no Eclipse or other dark BA beer when I visited unfortunately. Big selection of special Eclipse variants in a closet as well.
Food was just good, only a bit pricey. Okay place, not really worth taking a detour, but it’s allright if you’re passing by.
Wow was this place packed on a Saturday night. Hour wait for a table, which was a serious bummer, cause I had the family with me. Fortunately we were able to get into a nearby Japanese place with a third the wait time, and I was able to have a beer at the bar while we waited. Pretty solid taplist, they do have samplers as well. A few barrel aged offerings on the menu, but as others have said, don’t get your hopes up on those actually being available. They also had basically the full set of 2015 eclipse bottles to go at better than SF Bay retail prices. Food, particularly pizza, looked awesome.
Decent brewery tap, I had a flight of their beers + 1 pint, all beers were nice. Ample seating indoors and outdoors. Friendly staff, but to nitpick, the waiter / waitress could have been more attentive, as we were the only guests at lunchtime. No big deal though. Good food. Well worth a visit.
i always wish for a bigger selection of thir BA offereings (there’s usually 2 erased with one left). Service can be maddeningly slow, even when they’re half empty. Beers are solid, but only the BA stuff stands out. Still, definitely worth a stop in Tahoe...
Given what this brewery is doing with their beer, I understand why people come here. And it doesn’t take a lot to impress me from a service standpoint, but here it was far below average. No one even talked to me for 20 minutes and then it took quite a while to get the one barrel aged they actually had brought to the table. It was a good beer, but not memorable. The food was quite good.
I wouldn’t come back unless I happened to be nearby. The 50 minute drive wasn’t worth it.
