I had to grab some Icky IPA, as it's hard to find outside of the Reno area. Bought a six pack of cans. Great price for off sale. Great beer as always!

This Brewpub is popular with locals and features a broad selection of tasty beers for $5.00 per pint. The atmosphere is very casual with several TV's for watching sports. The menu is pub food that is reasonably priced. Their popular food items include pizzas, sausages, sandwiches, burgers and fish & chips. The brewhouse sausages and garlic fries are customer favorites.

I think everyone has someplace that is their "go to" place. Don't ask me why, but this is mine. It is funky, informal, and those who work their always greet you as though they know you. The food is "Bar Food", the beer is good, and they never make you feel like you need to get in and get out.

I love this place. They have a creative selection of craft-made beers they design to satisfy all types of brew tastes .. and their food is excellent. Don't miss their beer cheese soup - although I do miss their former bread and wish they'd bring it back. They have specialties on a limited basis, and the most recent that I... More

The food and service was terrific. We are not beer experts and the staff was terrific in recommendations that suited our palate and complimented our meal. A real experience. You can get samplers to taste at a cost before you choose to buys full size beer. Or you can just enjoy samples. burgers salads and specialties. A variety of food... More

This place has excellent beers and food, #1 Brewery in town, in my opinion. Great prices as well! 2 locations in town, South location does offer a brunch which is dynamite! Beer sure to try out the beer cheese soup and Willie fillies (old recipe, not new)... Aka deep fried dill pickles, amazing!

This Brewpub is in a cute little area of Sparks with several restaurants and bars and the Sparks Museum. I had a bratwurst sandwich which was delicious with a unique flavor. Did not have the coarse grind which I dislike in bratwurst. Drank Wild Horse Ale which I also recommend. Huge menu, decent prices and good service. Would definitely return

Thank amythann
