This Brewery at Lake Tahoe is more of a pizza place than a brewery. I've had all of their beers over the years and I had three the other night: IPA, Needle Peak, and the Bad Ass Ale. All of their beers are just mediocre. The IPA was one of the worst IPA's that I've ever had; severely lacking in hops. The Bad Ass Ale is anything but Bad Ass. They are all decent, drinkable beers but they are also all unmemorable and there is nothing special about any of them. Drink them with the pizza but don't stop in just to have a pint.

Now the pizza is an entirely different story. It is just flat out excellent. Perfect amount of cheese, unlimited toppings (same price for 1 or 15 toppings) fresh and excellent ingredients. Highly recommended, especially after a long day of snowboarding. It can get a little crowded so be prepared for a wait.

I am not a fan, actually really disappointed. The beer was sub par, especially for northern California standards and the food was poor, if I wanted a Toni's microwavable pizza I would have brought one with me. Nice location and friendly staff, the beer and food need some work however.

The place looks like my grandmothers house, and elevator music playing for atmosphere. Who would have thought it was a brewery? The funny thing is - the beer is fantastic!! The service was great, the price was very inexpensive, the food is better than average. This place is not in the tourist area and does have a small outside seating area, parking is good in back. My favorite place to go in South Lake Tahoe. Don't let the décor or the music selection scare you - the place is a winner - make it a destination spot.

Yesterday I went here for lunch with my family. The host was very rude to my wife implying that she couldn't count to 8 when he pointed at the large table to seat us. We got seated at the 4 person table that was next to the 8 person table. Our waiter came by and my mom asked if we could have a bigger table and he immediately gave us a six person table. There were 4 of us by the way. Our waiter was great. His name was Chris in case you go there. You want him as your waiter. The ultimate nachos were 17 dollars but they were very good. We also had the spicy ranchero pizza chips which was also very good. I chowed down on the pizza chips and my Indian Pale Ale while they chowed down on the nachos. My dad had the Washoe Wheat which is the summer seasonal. He really enjoyed the Washoe Wheat. It was a great experience. The only problem was the host who I didn't like and neither did my wife.

Visited for dinner and beers since it was within walking distance of our hotel, the Days Inn.

Basically it's a generic casual dining / sports bar that brews some of their own beers. Which is cool, but don't expect anything earth shattering. They have about 6 or 7 beers, fairly standard styles. I had pints of their flagship beer, the Bad Ass Ale, and also the porter. The Bad Ass was decent, nothing extreme like the name implies. I'd describe it as a hoppy red ale.

Our waitress was friendly and service was fine. The waitress didn't even care when the table of 10 guys next to us asked her to split the bill across 10 credit cards.

Food was a wide mix of American casual dining, with some specialty pizzas also. It was okay.
