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.

Stopped by here for lunch and some beers on our drive from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco.

Atmosphere is about what you'd expect for a brewpub. A nice bar, along with restaurant seating, and a nice outdoor patio area where we sat. clean, nice interior. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable, and food came quickly.

Selection and quality was top notch. They had about a dozen "standard" beers on tap, then some barrel aged specials. You could definitely find a style for your liking. All of the beers I tried were excellent. Any if someone in your party doesn't like beer they had a cocktail list. Food was very good - I had a blue cheese bacon burger with sweet potato fries and my wife had mussels.

Definitely recommend if you are in the area!

Stopped in for a couple beers: Highland Session and Charles on the rye. They were fine. I just had some fries, which were good, but I’m not going to rate food off of a plate of fries. The service was prompt and good. The value pretty standard. They had 14 of their own on tap with some interesting looking barrel aged versions. Worth stopping in if you’re trucking through Truckee.
