We went with another couple for some beer tasting! Wonderful selection of rich, full bodied beers, oh and the food is great as well! Great spot for all ages in the quaint town of susanville! There is a big Rec room in back for kids especially, away from the beer a bit.

If you are hungry when in Susanville, this is a must. Very good food and nice atmosphere. I had the most amazing BLTA with all fresh area grown ingredients. My husband had the beer cheese soup. He was worried it might be heavy but it wasn't. The staff was friendly and could answer questions about the area. Great place. Will... More

One of the oldest breweries in the region, Lassen Ale Works offers some excellent beer and fine home cooking. In the back room, you can see the beer brewing and locals playing pool. Service is attentive and food comes quickly. We ordered a taster flight that ranged from blond to double hop IPA and enjoyed finding the flavours that went... More

My husband is a dark beer aficionado from the urban Northwest where everyone, including him, is beer and coffee snob. He was stunned when they served him the BEST dark beer he has ever had. I favor amber brews and mine was also excellent. The ambience is great: Old historic building in downtown Susanville lovingly restored with murals of local... More

Stopped in after a long drive for a Basque stew and a flight to sample their brews. The Brown Ale, Pioneer Porter and Imperial Stout were superb as was the stew.

From the outside you would think it's dark and dank. But inside there is a large skylight and it is a family atmosphere. The beer was excellent. Mac and cheese and seafood pasta was very good. We will come here again our next time through. I thought $10 for a kid's Burger was expensive but it was a good size,... More

Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon in Uptown Susanville is NE California's only brewpub. The historic Pioneer Mercantile building we occupy has been home to a saloon for over 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, wines 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 watch the brewer at work in the back room and play pool beneath the historic mural that celebrates Susanville's logging and ranching roots.
