Dear Brewmaster,

I'm curious, exactly what beer awards have you guys won?

Norm from Roseville, CA


Hey Norm,

We've been honored with a number of awards for our brews. In fact, our Outlaw Milk Stout recently won a Silver Medal for Sweet Stouts in the 2014 World Beer Cup. For the full award list, you can

As Germany gets ready to wrap up its Oktoberfest celebration, our brewmaster is yelling "O'zapft is!" as he taps the first keg of Great Basin Oktoberfest Ale. All month long we'll keep the celebration going with Oktoberfest themed food specials including pretzels, red cabbage, bratwurst with sauerkraut, pork tenderloin with maple mustard sauce, and other​ delicious specials. 

Come hoist a pint of Oktoberfest Ale with us as we celebrate!

The time is yet again upon us. We need your help to brew one of our most coveted brews - Great Basin Harvest Ale. Each year we take regional ingredients from the Great Basin including juniper berries, sage and pinion pine nuts. To brew with raw pine nuts, the shells first need to be removed. That’s where we need you. For each pint of pine nuts you crack, we'll give you a free pint of beer*.

So come down and crack your heart out at our Pine Nut Cracking Party on October 28th and 29th beginning at 11 am and lasting til the nuts run out.

* Must be 21 or older to receive a free pint of beer. Non-alcoholic substitutes available to those under 21.

We like to say that beer is like liquid bread. Guess that makes bread like solid beer. Our Reno brewery has been baking up some delicious creations lately. Each & every artisan loaf is handcrafted using spent grains from our brewing process, local honey and lots of love. Come down and take a fresh loaf home with you (or two).

Freshly Baked On:

Monday & Tuesday: Icky Bread, Garlicky Bread
Wednesday & Thursday: Icky Bread, Lorenzo Jalapeño Bread
Friday - Sunday: Icky Bread, Cinnamon Raisin Bread

We've been waiting patiently, biding our time. It's almost finished. Our Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout will soon be ready to imbibe in. Roasty, big, and unforgettable. This brew has been aging in Rogue Whiskey barrels since January. Yep, we know how to be patient.

Coming January 2015
