We have added a couple of new happenings to our EVENTS page! Just in case you wanted to plan ahead…


IMBĪB Custom Brews has started a new beer series called Pie Crust. These are sour fruited beers with a bready malt backbone with hints of pie spice. Resembling your favorite homemade pie. The first release is cherry on tap now.

They have also released Freshy Tweaked. Dry hopped very heavily with Citra, Equinox and Pekko; giving you juicy hop character with tropical esters from a special yeast strain.

Spoiler: Abio 5 has snuck back on tap. And, check our event page for a cool event coming up at IMBĪB .

Sidellis Lake Tahoe Brewery has released Dunk in da trunk, a German dunkleweiss. This dark wheat beer is fermented with Weihenstephaner yeast which can trace its origins back to the original Weinstephaner brewery in Baveria


The Mill Street Still & Brew Taproom and Micron Beers, will now operate under the banner of 10 TORR Precision Crafted Beers and the 10 TORR Tap Room. The vacuum distilled spirits will remain under the 10 TORR banner. In a press release, Will Whipple, Co-Owner and Brewmaster said “Originally there was some
confusion regarding our family of products. We are proceeding with the name that we believe defines the unique and best qualities of the products that we produce.”

On the first of the year, High Sierra Brewing in Baldini’s Casino closed. Occidental Brewing from Portland has opened in the same location. You can read more about that HERE.

Directions to all the local craft establishments can be found on our CRAFT MAP.
