We go for dinner at least once a week at the Sparks location ( the original). Very good artisan beers and casual dining. Very friendly staff. Very popular in community. Also a second location in Reno that has pizza oven. All food is very good as are their in-house brewed beers.

GB opened the year we move to Reno/Sparks. We have been often, but only several times a year. I have not been in a year, and at that time I enjoyed a nice lunch outside with my son. I went again yesterday with my men's luncheon group. There were 12 of us. They were very accommodating and Kalie, our waitress... More

This place has been rundown and a dive since it opened. The food and service is iffy. It looks like an afterthought! Very very noisy, it's a bar. The crowd can be iffy as well, as a woman I would not go in there alone. If you are into drinking you'll probably think it's great, if not you probably won't.... More

After having a walk around looking at the museum close by we called in to have a drink or three. They make their own beers which are on tap. The place is divided into the bar, sitting inside, and an area outside for food. The girl behind the bar was friendly and invited questions about each type of beer she... More

Haven't been here in year and still they deliver! The beers have always been fantastic and this trip landed during a limited release of their barrel aged imperial stout, fantastic! The real reason we came. The ultimate must. The coup de gras! The bread bowl, house made incorporating the Iky IPA loaded with cheese. Fat kid heaven.

My colleague chose this micro brewery for dinner. I am fond of stouts and theirs is very good. Also had the shepherd's pie. This was quite tasty and very filling. The lamb had great texture and flavor.

Had a very good time. This local beer is my favorite (Ichy I P A). Good relaxed atmosphere with prompt courteous wait staff. Food is good and up to temp when served. Costs were medium level and worth it. Very large selection of beer brewed in house.

We live in Sparks and regularly frequent this place. The beer is brewed on premises and is fantastic with seasonal changes. 🍻 the food is good. The staff is great! 👏 depending on day a season there will be local music either inside or out. Good weather brings outside seating. A nice low key place to eat and grab a... More
