We visited this after we finished moving into our new apartment. It was crowded even at 3 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon. My has been really enjoyed his beer and my son enjoyed the root beer on tap. I had a salmon burger that was really really good.

Best place in Reno/Sparks for award winning micro brews! Daily specials, every day specials from soup to Ribeye and every bar food in between keeps us locals coming back! Try the $1 Happy hour carnitas in Sparks and $2.50 pints. You'll become a regular too! Thanks to all the employees, Paul, Johnny, Alexis, Ian and everyone else!

This is the place is you are looking for a friendly neighborhood microbrewery. Not sure which of the many brews available? Then go with a sampler. The food is a cut above standard bar menu with generous portions and tasty selections. Local favorite during the summer to sit on the patio.

It's a brewery, so you expect it to have good beer, though I've been to many that have not delivered. Great Basin lived up to its beer hype with a large selection of staples as well as some tasty seasonal beers, such as a Bacon Brew and Pumpkin Ale. But, not only does it have good beer; it also has... More

My son is going to school at UNR and we often stop for lunch at Great Basin for lunch when visiting. It's on Victorian Street in Sparks, just off the freeway for easy access. The street is shared with a number of other eateries and bars, so you can always try something else if Great Basin is busy. Entrees for... More

I was attending a business conference in Sparks, NV by myself and didn't know anybody at the conference. In three days there, I ate at this pub twice. They had free WI-FI and good food and beer. I sat at the end of the bar the first time I went and the bartender was very friendly. So, I went back... More

Never a bad meal, never a bad beer! Great Basin is our "Cheers;" we go there every time we visit Sparks, which is usually once or twice a month... Their flagship beers are fantastic (my favorite is Chilebeso), their garlic fries are delicious, and the dinner menu is out of this world. Stop in for a beer or a meal;... More
