Get the whiskey barrel aged beer.

Great, friendly, knowledgeable service. The beer was just ok. It was Stout season, so we tried the stout sampler and the only one that was worth ordering more was the whiskey barrel aged beer. That one was really good, smooth, flavorful and not just another beer. The salmon tacos were tasty, but... read more

It's a pub style restaurant. Friendly service. They have a nice selection on their menu. The cucumber salad is to die for. Really good food!

Great basin makes great pizza to go with their excellent beer choices. My favorite beer is the chilebeso which has a jalapeño infused flavor that is not overwhelming. The Icky is their signature beer and also their best seller. The atmosphere is always great and the service is outstanding.

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
