Recently visited the area, and what a find! It is a beautiful little brewpub, very clean and unique, california-esque interior. The food was kind of pricey, but very high quality for brewpub food. And the beers were exceptional! My table tried nearly everything on tap, which was a great selection - gold, blonde, pale ale, ipa, porter, double ipa, and a bourbon barrel imperial stout. All beers were crafted excellently and to style - the bourbon barrel imperial stout was phenomenal, a beer one should seek out if visiting the area. Overall, it was a great spot...the one negative was the bud light tap handle I saw behind the bar(this pains me everytime I see this in brewpubs: why have a BMC line when your beers are sooo good?! and your gold is so light and drinkable?!).

A must stop on my honeymoon. We were there the end of April.

The location of this place is absolutely beautiful. Its just of I-80 in the Donner Pass and a really short drive from both Reno and Lake Tahoe-so there's a lot to do around here for a weekend trip if you live in CA or are driving to CA (as we were). It is set in a plaza of log lodge-style buildings-all commercial. The interior is as you would expect-log cabin style. Not really much else to say there.

Selection and Quality- FiftyFifty is most well known for their eclipse bourbon barrel stout series of which they had one on tap- old FItzgerald. Fantastic. Other beers they had on tap included a old conundrum barleywine, barrel aged barleywine, imperial stout, donner party porter, their regular line-up, plus rye pale ale, summit pale ale and maybe 4 wheat. My husband really enjoyed the entire selection only finding the blonde ale to be lackluster (but I guess that's the point.) After sampling all their brews we ordered the old fitzgerald, the barleywine, the BA barleywine, and the summit pale ale. We grabbed a growler of the Donner Party Porter to go plus bought a few bottles of totality imperial stout.

Service- We got their when the place opened on a Wednesday morning in late april and sat at the bar. The bartender treated us very well plus we got a little history about how the brewmaster is a Chicago guy. I think they were impressed we drove all the way out there from the PA/OH border and made it a point to stop here on our honeymoon.

Food- My husband likes his burgers rare-and that was not a problem here! I ordered the bourbon shrimp-which was also delicious.

Overall- This is a fantastic brewpub that makes great, but pretty traditional beers.
