Description: Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon in Uptown Susanville is...
Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon in Uptown Susanville is Northeastern California's only brewpub. We are a 21 and over only establishment. The historic Pioneer Mercantile building we occupy has been home to a saloon for 150 years--look for the large vintage neon Pioneer sign on the south side of Main Street. We offer a small but eclectic menu of house-made dishes including fish and chips, lamb stew, hamburgers and fresh salads. Our ales are made on site and include light and dark ales from the pale, crisp Bizz Johnson Blonde to the rip snorting Pioneer Porter. We also have a full bar, specialty cocktails, a wine by the glass and a selection of single malt scotch. Take a seat at our 36-foot-long bar and admire the wall of local ranch brands above the bar back or go into the back room to watch the brewer at work and play pool beneath the historic mural that celebrates the logging and ranching roots of Susanville.

Lassen ale work's, is inside. Yummy brews, lovely helpful wait staff, tasty food. It's where the locals go for a night out. The night we stopped in the place was packed. A big event was happening in the back room. So we were surprised how fast our food arrived. Everything was hot fresh and delicious. The brews were very good... More

As our first choice, Happy Garden, was closed, we tried Lassen Ale Works for a light dinner. Enjoyed the atmosphere, the fish tacos, and an IPA. Friendly, excellent service.

Lassen Ale Works is our #1 favorite place to go in Susanville. It's so much fun trying out their different beers. The food is typical of what you find in this type of place. The menu is not huge but what they have to offer is very enjoyable. You should stop by and give it a try.

When the The Ale House first opened, it was an awesome place to eat or have a beverage. I'm a person who enjoys a decent meal and good service and don't mind paying for it. Nothing too fancy. My wife and sister in laws went there the Friday night before our experience. They waited about 1 1/2 hours after being... More

Susanville would not typically be considered a destination city. But my wife and I regularly make the 1+ hour trip just to eat at the Lassen Ale Works. I am much more of an oenophile than a beer drinker, but their house brewed beer is excellent, and would stand up to any of the fine craft beers for which northern... More

On a motorcycle trip with friends, heading to Reno and by chance came upon the Lassen Ale Works. Great Beer, great food and wonderful staff. If you are anywhere close to Susanville make sure you stop. Look for the Pioneer Tavern sign in the down town section of town. Bikers welcome.
