This is the brewery to go to when you're in Reno or Sparks. They have some fantastic beers, can't go wrong with the classic Icky, but I prefer their porter. Food is also quite good for a brewpub and the atmosphere is lively and fun.

My wife loves the fish and chips and I enjoy their Shepherds Pie. The choices of beer are phenomenal and there is one for every person's taste.Servers are knowledgeable about their beers and which one goes best with whatever food is ordered.

I don't believe their is a premium steak on the menu. Perhaps a flat iron and a Tri-tip. I always eat burgers or sausages there as they are made locally.
