A great place, and perhaps somewhat unexpected if if you don't know much about Reno. The original location is in a I haven't been to their new river location in downtown.

I give the original high vibe marks because of the roof deck; such a great spot to hang out for an afternoon and evening when the weather is nice with a great view of Mt. Rose and the surrounding mountains. The inside looks nice, but frankly it has always been empty when I have been here because everyone is up top... this was our go-to spot in the summers when we lived at Tahoe and wanted to escape the weekend crowds (and do our Trader Joes/CostCo/etc. shopping run).

They offer a nice range of proprietary brews including year round and seasonal offerings. Most of the beers are quite good. The food is dependable, and some items are really great.

When in Reno, be sure to stop by Silver Peak.

Sometimes being located right across the street from the adult spankbooths can be a blessing and a curse. That very much is the case for Silver Peak.

Beer is decent, nothing to travel for, but if you're already here, you probably won't find anything else local that is decidedly better.

Service, nothing pretentious, just decent. Selection could use a little more variety. From time to time they come up with some unique seasonals. Their IPA is my fave. Do they still make Peavine Porter? Some good wood fire pizzas. Pretty much always been happy with their grub. Nice upper deck patio overlooking the porno shack across the street. Don't drink too much, there's too many ugly chicks/prostitutes, tattoo shops, spankbooths, cops to where you might get into a little trouble. Not me, but you.

Thoroughly off the beaten path, this establishment impressed me as a place that people come to because they love the good beer, and they also appreciate the good food... and they keep coming back.

By myself and in Reno for business, I skipped the rooftop deck and sat at the bar, where I was well cared for. The bartender was knowledgeable about the brews, and immediately steered me to the latest in their single hop series, the Simcoe Pale Ale. Very tasty, and apparently the brewmaster enjoys experimenting and s/he's good enough at it to make it support the business.

The barroom is unassuming, but has nice views out the window: trees waving in the breeze and mountains in the distance. Not exactly elegant, but it's not "rustic" (or careworn or sleazy) either, just rather authentic. I could complain about the gambling machines embedded in the bar (which NOBODY was using), but ya can't escape that in Reno.

The menu had some rather unique items. I got the asparagus and shitake mushroom tempura appetizer, which was yummy with its ginger-soy sauce dipping sauce. There were happy-hour specials on pizza and nachos, but apparently happy hours end all too soon at 6 pm, so my second Simcoe PA was $4 instead of $2.75. Still pretty good pricing.

Overall, highly recommended for the decent beer and food and good atmosphere.

I freakin' love this place and here's why:

Quality beer with the standard lineup always acceptable and rotating offerings always worth a taste. Barrel aged stout, raspberry wheatwine, and the special Belgian for an employee's wedding are some highlights from recent memory. The brewer, Brandon, trained at Siebel and in Munich, and is not afraid to get creative.

Good creative menu and very fair prices (love the pizzas, salads, and jambalaya especially).

Service is always good (OK, there almost certainly must be off nights, off servers, and the occasional mistake, expecting 100% perfection is unrealistic, but it's as good as I can ask for).

Summertime, on the rooftop deck with a view of the Sierras, pizza in front of me and a delicious Silver Peak beer in hand, is perhaps one rendition of heaven on earth for me.

Stopped in here with the family for lunch on the way to Lake Tahoe. Not very busy for a Sat. around 1pm. I did not get the check, so I am not sure how expensive everything was.

Our server was seemed competent, we did not have to wait long for our beers or food. He also seemed to read the table right and realized that the grandparents were not beer people.

The food was pretty good, I really liked my steak sandwich with avocado and peppers. The salads looked good as well.

I started off with the IPA, which was a very good, but not spectacular, west coast IPA. I next tried the "Collaborative Evil" which was a belgian style pale ale. This was an interesting beer, but I am not sure I would order it again. The rest of the family had the amber ale, all seemed to like it.

All in all, I would drop in if I was in town, but I would not make a special trip.

I stopped in here for the first time this past weekend. Hopefully, I'll get to stop by again sometime in the future. I thought it was a pretty cool brewpub, but the people I was with wanted to go elsewhere. Anywhere, here goes...

As I remember it - I was a bit tipsy at the time - Silver Peak had a pretty trendy feel to it. All of the decor looked modern and shiny, and most of the patrons looked young and well-to-do. I actually saw a lot of people wearing fancy suits and dresses. Young high-rollers, I guess? Everything was very clean and... nice. I liked it.

All of the beers were listed on a board hanging above the bar. Most of them were simple American styles like blondes, reds, and IPAs, though they also had a Belgian strong pale ale, which I ordered. It was decent to say the least. I also tried their Red Roadster, an American red ale. It was pretty good. I'm sure that most people would find something they liked up there. Silver Peak had a total of thirteen house beers to choose from. Still, I would have been nice to see a couple more adventurous options.

The service was okay: the bartender was quick to get our order the first time, but essentially ignored one of our friends when he went up to pay. She was terse and vague when I began asking questions about my beer, but it was kinda busy so I can let that slide.

Hopefully I'll be back here again in the future. The initial impression was nice.
