“Great local beers and pub food”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Great Basin is the oldest brewery in Nevada, and their Ichy is a local favorite. They have two pub locations, and a third (new) production facility, where you can taste the beers. They make some great seasonal beers. Their menu at their restaurants is very extensive and varied. The fish and chips are some of the best in town. Great local venue!

“Great Brewpub”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I have been going here for years and keep going back. The food isn't bad, but their IPA is fantastic. You must go in and ask for an "Icky."

“Good beer, good food.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Great Basin offers some great local brews, try an Icky. The fish and chips are the best that I've had in Reno, and they offer many other food choices.

“Great-Great beer, so-so food”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Great Basin has got it down on the beer brewing, however the food is really not great. If only the food could improve I would be down there much more!
