This place has had a ton of turnover in the last decade or so. It was a different brewery when I worked across the street from it, and different bar before that. I sure do like that cute chick with glasses in their commercial though, if I run into you girl, its so on!

Atmosphere is cool, very open, they seem to be going for more of the club (oomph oomph oomph dance music) vibe on the weekends, so that will attract the usual degree of asshats (aside from being in Carson City). Selection of beers is pretty much standard English fare, blonde, wheat, pale, ipa, porter, stout. All of them are pretty much middle of the road in terms of quality. Nothing horrible. Usual pub grub food wise.

Easy enough to find, its right in the middle of downtown.

Last Friday I drove from Vegas to Reno and stopped in Carson City for a quick meeting with a casino type. We were to meet at Doppelgangers but he called me and said it was closed so we met at Adeles instead. After the meeting I went to Doppelgangers and here is the scoop as of last Friday.
They are currently opened on weekdays from 4 until 8 pm, thats it, drink fast my friends and on weekends until 2am. Also the kitchen is closed!!
This was my first time here. The inside is sort of like a bar/nightclub. They do have a outside covered patio which is very comfortable and inviting in my opinion. I tried two beers,the Genoa Pale Ale and the Nevada Amber Ale, both were good but no more than that.So for now right down the street is Firkin & Fox, opened lunch and dinner.

This is located right in the heart of Carson City. I sat in the front of the building which is an open, yet shaded area. There was a bar off to the side. Several plants and mist sprayers were adorned from the top of the shaded tent. It was lunch time, so this was the only part of the restaurant that was open. They did have an inside area that was spacious and huge. The service was friendly. Nothing over the top, yet knowledgeable and helpful. The menu consisted of sandwiches, pizza, and sandwiches. The turkey sandwich I had was tasty. Dopplegangers had eight brews made there. They hit all the standards: porter, stout, ipa, lager and so forth. Their most exotic entry was the V&T Honey Ale, which was fairly good. This was a nice place to stop over on the way to Yosemite to grab a beer. I would be really curious to see how this place is at night.

Doppelgangers is right on the "main drag" through Carson City, easy to find, with parking readily available on the side street (W. Proctor St.) I stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday, so the place was almost empty - your mileage may vary.

I entered through the side door and didn't see the front entrance. The room is large and open with high ceilings, big windows, and an easy ambiance. The bar has a spacious island behind it and there are tables and seating in the front. Behind the bar is the brewing area, which can be seen from the bar. To the rear, there is a stage, and another room of some sort behind that. I hope Saturday nights in Carson City are lively, because Doppelgangers has A LOT of space.

The bartender said Doppelgangers has been open only 3-4 years, so while the place has the feel of on old-time western bar, it's really quite modernized, with large plasma TV screens around. Rather than a traditional bar, the bar and counter surfaces are reddish formica, so it doesn't have the historical trappings of some old places.

The beer menu had the typical offerings, including a blonde ale, "Wolf Pack" wheat ale, Genoa Pale Ale, Nevada Amber Ale, Prospector Robust Porter, Imperial Stout, and an IPA. An unusual beer on the menu is the V&T Honey Ale. I tried the IPA, which was quite good and suggests above average attention to the art of brewing. The menu was dominated by meaty offerings but included pizza, pasta, and salads. I opted for a grilled portabella mushroom sandwich, seemingly the obligatory default veggie option in the universe of pub grub. The food was delivered quickly and it was juicy and good. The sourdough bread was slathered with some high-fat sauce, so even their veggie offering wasn't exactly low-cal nouveau cuisine, but it was highly edible.

The service was fine, the bartender attentive, and the tab for beer, sandwich, and tip was ~$15. That may be a little pricey by Nevada standards, but reasonable to me. If you're passing through Carson City or need a beer stop on your way between Tahoe and Reno, I recommend this place.
