Dear Brewmaster,

Congratulations on the past 20 years! I remember when you first opened, how wonderful it was to finally have good local beer. It's been great to watch you grow. 

Ron from Sparks


Hey Ron,

Thanks for the kind words! It sure has been one wild ride the past 20 years and we've made so many friends along the way. We couldn't have done it without you guys.

In the ever growing landscape of craft brewing, the local brewpub spotlighting the marriage of fine beer and mouthwatering fare is oftentimes the place we call our home away from home. For 2 decades Great Basin Brewing Co. has dedicated its endeavors to that of tapping into the hearts of beer and food lovers in Sparks & Reno.

Come celebrate 20th Anniversary Week with us and enjoy daily specials and activities at both of the locations that have been home to so many days, months and years of fun, cheer and merriment.

Anniversary Week

Celebration Schedule:


Monday, November 4th:
All-You-Can-Eat Fish & Chips

We're bringing back the old days when, once a week, you could come down to the Basin and be stuffed to the gills with all-you-can-eat Fish and Chips. Enjoy the bounty at both Reno and Sparks brewpubs with all-you-can-eat Fish and Chips for just $14.95 per person beginning at 4pm.


Tuesday, November 5th:
Tightwad Like it's 1993!

Tightwad Tuesday this week offers retro-priced $2 pints all day at both locations.

Brewmaster's Celebration Dinner

A food and beer pairing dinner event with the founder and brewmaster, Tom Young, will be featured at the Reno location for a limited crowd. Dinner is $49 per guest and expected to sell out quickly.

Make your reservation by calling 284-7711 post-haste to attend this one-of-a-kind celebration of Great Basin Brewing.


Thursday, November 7th:
Coat Drive, Mystery Night & Beer Release Party

Right Image

The 2nd half of Anniversary Week starts with Coat Drive & Mystery Night! All items donated through the coat drive go to the Salvation Army and somebody in need. Exchange your warm coats for cold brews... we'll give you a free pint for each bag of clothes. And Mystery Night is, well, a mystery. Stick around to see what happens.

Alas, the fun isn't over.

We're releasing bottles of the Outlaw Milk Stout and a Limited Edition Bottling of the Great Basin Anniversary Ale. This special brew honors 20 years of creative brewing by fusing 3 of our signature beers: Icky, Chilibeso and Harvest Ale. The result is a double IPA brewed with jalapenos and juniper berries.


Friday & Saturday,
November 8th - 9th:

Harvest Ale

Many thanks to our patrons who recently attended Great Basin's nut cracking parties. Soon you'll be able to enjoy the result of your labors. This seasonal ale is coveted every year for its hints of pine nuts, notes of juniper berries and sage, it's a brew that is redolent of the natural landscapes we cherish right here in the Great Basin.
