... to know that in Sparks we’ll be open to celebrate July 4th with food, beer and live music! The Jason King Band will take our outside stage at 6 pm and play until the fireworks begin. It promises to be the perfect place to hang out while waiting for the fireworks.
In Reno, we'll be closing early for the celebration with the kitchen shutting down at 4pm and the bar at 6pm, so get your food & growlers early.
Nothing goes with freedom like a pint of craft beer.
We’re releasing the first in a new line of limited 2014 Expedition Releases - White Eye PA, a Belgian-style India Pale Ale. It’s a fresh perspective on what was once a quite lovely witbier. We’ve gone in and removed the traditional spices and created a beautiful aura of Simcoe, El Dorado, and Centennial hops. This unfiltered ale will have you seeing the light in no time. Available in special 22 oz. bottles beginning July 11th in our breweries and in stores across the area after that.
Once it hits your lips, you’ll never be the same.

Swinging for the Fences
We're one of 70 microbreweries nationwide that have come together to support the fight against Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Using a special blend of experimental hops donated by B.T. Loftus Ranches and Hopunion, we have brewed Buster#4, a Double IPA, in honor Corey Reich, the Hanses family, and all others living with ALS.
$1 per pint sold will be donated to the ALS Therapy Development Institute in their quest for a cure and improved treatment options. Your thirst helped us donate over $5000 in 2013, but we think we can do even better this year!
Great Basin Joins Beer Camp
Our friends up at Sierra Nevada Brewing are shooting for the moon this year with an epic 7-city, nationwide beer festival where every craft brewery in America has been invited to pour their brews.
Once they told us about it, we knew it was going to be awesome and immediately signed up. Beer Camp kicks off in Chico, California on July 19th from 12-5 pm where there’s slated to be 113 regional breweries, including Great Basin. Tickets are just $65.

Bring on the heat. We’re ready for it because our Summer Saison Series is in full effect now with Rosemary Rye Saison – which has all the great components of our traditional Rosemary Rye Patch - with a French Saison yeast strain that adds to the spicy, citrusy, and crisp elements. Plus, coming any day we’ll release our Basil and Kaffir Lime Leaf Saison.
We’re currently crafting the next release in the series, more on that soon!
The Great Reno Balloon Race is just a couple of months away and to help celebrate its return, we’ll be releasing Dawn Patrol. A seasonal release, and the Official Brew of The Great Reno Balloon Race, it’s at once bright and crisp and the perfect brew for a hot summer afternoon. $1 from each pint goes directly to benefit The Great Reno Balloon Race. It will be available at both breweries mid-July on tap, in 6-Packs, and watch for it at beer stores after that!
