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

Last week we had lunch at Great Basin. What a selection of brews! I had a Hefeweisen, my husband had a porter. Good food and brews at a reasonable cost.

There is a comprehensive menu and it is within walking distance of the Nuggett, where the food is lacking.

Brewing on site provided plenty of craft brew options. Pints are $5. We ordered a wild horse cheddar sausage sandwich and a sweet Italian sandwich. Prompt friendly service. Excellent IPA and Porter beers. Reasonable prices.

We have had Great Basin beers many times... The milk Stout and IPa are very good. We decided to check out their brew pub while visiting Sparks I think we tasted over ten beers. The atmosphere is a little older.. maybe it needs an update. The beers were good and the service was fine. We didn't eat any food.

Loved the patty melt burger as well as the chicken pasta dish! Yum! Savouring these dishes with an Icky IPA and a Tectonic, made for a relaxing, satisfying family meal. Made sure to pick up a case of Outlaw Stout next time I was in the grocery store.
