We went specifically to this brew pub because of Icky. When we arrived there was a band we went to sit at a vacant table and we were told we had to check in with the hostess. After locating the door to the resturant a man come up and greeted the people that came in behind us. They didn't know... More

Nice pub with good food and beer. The Victorian area it is located in is very charming. We had the Black and Blue Burger, the Brewben Sandwich and the Beer Cheese Soup. All were excellent. We tried the Oatmeal Stout and the Cervesa Rojo which were both good.

Passing through Reno, hubby had fish & chips, I had fish tacos with the same fried fish, and it was REALLY good. Its hard to find good fish & chips... I had the Icky, which is the beer named after the state fossil, and found it to be quite tasty. We picked up a 6 pack to take with us.... More

We go for dinner at least once a week at the Sparks location ( the original). Very good artisan beers and casual dining. Very friendly staff. Very popular in community. Also a second location in Reno that has pizza oven. All food is very good as are their in-house brewed beers.

GB opened the year we move to Reno/Sparks. We have been often, but only several times a year. I have not been in a year, and at that time I enjoyed a nice lunch outside with my son. I went again yesterday with my men's luncheon group. There were 12 of us. They were very accommodating and Kalie, our waitress... More

This place has been rundown and a dive since it opened. The food and service is iffy. It looks like an afterthought! Very very noisy, it's a bar. The crowd can be iffy as well, as a woman I would not go in there alone. If you are into drinking you'll probably think it's great, if not you probably won't.... More

After having a walk around looking at the museum close by we called in to have a drink or three. They make their own beers which are on tap. The place is divided into the bar, sitting inside, and an area outside for food. The girl behind the bar was friendly and invited questions about each type of beer she... More

We visit only twice a year or so but when we do it is nearly always beer battered fish and chips for us! Always consistently good! Never greasy always firm and flakey! Love that beer flavored batter! We have our annual fundraiser for a non-prophet there also. It was one of two micro brewery's a few years back now has... More

Haven't been here in year and still they deliver! The beers have always been fantastic and this trip landed during a limited release of their barrel aged imperial stout, fantastic! The real reason we came. The ultimate must. The coup de gras! The bread bowl, house made incorporating the Iky IPA loaded with cheese. Fat kid heaven.
