Dear Brewmaster,

When I visit Reno, a visit to Great Basin is always on the to do list. I noticed this last week that Great Basin Brewing Co. beer is available at Total Wine in Sacramento. Are there any plans to distribute your beer in the San Francisco/Bay Area market?

Hey Gordon,

We're currently working on expanding our distribution further west into the Bay Area. Nothing to announce just yet but stay tuned for more info in the coming months.

The Great Pumpkin Ale

Comes Up a Winner!

The results are in from the Great American Beer Festival® and we’re honored to say that we’ve been awarded a bronze medal for The Great Pumpkin Ale in the Pumpkin Beer category! It’s a brew we’ve been crafting for many years now, making adjustments in technique and formulation each time we craft it.

The Great Pumpkin Ale went into a field filled with stiff competition from all across the nation. This year there were 6,647 beers entered into the competition from 1,552 breweries, out of which just 275 medals were awarded. When the dust settled, Great Basin remained Nevada’s most award-winning brewery with 24 major national and international beer competition awards. 

The Great Pumpkin Ale will be available on tap at Great Basin’s Reno and Sparks brewpubs on October 15th.

See what's on tap now...
