Breweries & Distilleries in Reno Tahoe

Welcome to the Land of No Last Calls

From Reno to Lake Tahoe, there are many locally-owned options to get a tasty cocktail or beer. Reno, in particular, has seen a dramatic increase in the number of local breweries and distilleries, many of which have gained acclaim on the West Coast and around the world.

A Few Local Favorites

Brewer's Cabinet

Sitting on the edge of downtown is the perfect place for some house-made tater tots and one of their signature “Tahoe” brand beers.

The Depot

A unique option located on Fourth Street in the old train depot, aptly named The Depot, is Nevada’s first combined brewery and distillery. Since coming onto the scene in 2014, The Depot has been a local hotspot known for its hand-crafted brews and adventurous dining menu.

Alibi Ale Works

A Tahoe brewery that can’t be missed with locations in Incline Village and Truckee. They pride themselves on using pure Lake Tahoe water to produce an award-winning line-up of balanced brews. You can grab a growler of your favorite while you are there or find their beer distributed locally.

IMBĪB Custom Brews

Known nationally for their IPAs, pale ales, hazy beers and even dry-hopped sour beers — all of which are barrel-aged. Swing by their flagship location on Wells Avenue or visit them at Legends in Sparks.

Reno Distilleries

From locally-farmed elements to our craft cocktail culture, the Reno Tahoe area provides the perfect ingredients for distilleries to be born and bred. Seven Troughs Distilling Co. is an example of a craft distillery that is standing out with its mid-century process of open fermentation in wooden hogshead barrels. A number of other Reno distilleries are also adding local flavor to traditional spirits, such as Yeti Jackalope Gin from Verdi Local Distillery and Biggest Little Bourbon from The Depot.

Area Distilleries

If you are a craft spirit connoisseur, or you are just looking to try something new, Nevada has some hidden gems. In Minden, about an hour drive south of Reno is the Minden Mill Distilling. Built in a 100-year-old flour mill, this distillery uses grains and materials grown on the ranch to create their spirits. If this is all sounding great to you, Bently Ranch hosts distillery tours Thursday through Sunday, and there’s a tasting room. Secondly, located east of Reno on a charming ranch in Fallon, Nevada, you will find a distillery with roots dating back more than a hundred years – Frey Ranch Estate Distillery. If Frey Ranch has you intrigued, they host tours every Saturday afternoon.
