I have a hard time with brewery, which do not have one of the two standards, a Porter or a Pale Ale which display the true ability of a brewmaster, in my opinion.

Went just for the brew.. Maybe have food next time...

First went for the Jackpot Porter... very drinkable ... then asked the bartender what was best on tap and had the Ichthyosaur IPA.. Wow...Great beer! ::NOTE:: Proper way to ask for the Ichthyosaur IPA is "Gimme an Icky!"

Friendly staff and visable brew tanks. always nice when you can see the operation!

As a Reno resident, I think Great Basin is "hands down" the best brewpub in the area. Some of the competing local brewpubs at times use fruit essences in their beers that are distinctly phony in taste. One of the very few downsides of Great Basin is that their rotation of beers on tap changes constantly and, as a result, some of my favorites of their beers (such as "Rosemary Rye Patch," "Pogonip Pilsner" and the holiday "Red Nose Ale") are not available as often as I wish they were. With the exception perhaps of "Chili Beso" (a beer flavored with chilis . . . in my opinion, an acquired taste at best), I've never had a beer from Great Basin that I didn't think was just magnificent.

Didn't have all their beers available. The only special pour available was a very tasty ale. Defnitely worth the trip. Fish and Chips were better than most and service was fine.

Before you order the "Death by Chocolate Stout", read the fine print!!! (A note to those with a lactose intolerance.)

Great brewpub!! Well deserved of the GABF medals! Neat atmosphere, with a fine beer selection (though they were out of a few when we were there). I had the sampler - the pils, IMHO, was the best of the bunch. Great Shepherd's Pie and Fish & Chips too! Well worth the trip.

On a recent trip I stopped at several brew pubs but this one was the best overall. Food and beer was excellent and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this establishment.

Great Place... especially in the spring/summer on the outside patio with the band playing.... In "Sparks" there is no "open container" law (like in Reno) for the events (like Hot August Nights)...makes cooling off at the events a bit more civilized.

I was in the Reno area on business, and since I don't gamble, this was a very welcome oasis and I ended up spending the better part of three nights at Great Basin. I'm a bit perplexed by some of the food comments. I found the food to be excellent, and very reasonably priced (especially considering the overpriced slop at my hotel's restaurants). The beer is definitely the primary reason to go, however. I didn't care for the Oktoberfest, but everything else was terrific, especially the Icthyosaur IPA, Hop Head Ale, and Scotch ale.

The barmaid was not very friendly or attentive, but that doesn't take away from the good taste of their beers! We had a sampler of 9 different beers - most of which were above average! We really enjoyed the variety of brews that were offered. We were, however, bumped from our seats at the bar to make room for some "locals" who wanted to play the poker machines at the bar. Are you there to drink a good tasting beer or to gamble??? We would definitely visit here again!

Very nice casual brewpub outside Reno. The IPA and Helles were first-rate (the former akin to Sierra Nevada, but with a more pleasing malty finish). The Porter and Wild Horse Ale were very good but unremarkable. Above average pub fare in an unpretentious, friendly atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

My favorite hangout when in the area. Their IPA is first rate (although it could use a bit more hops) and the food is varied and tasty.
