Brew Brothers, Reno NV

Postby valorian_13 » Tue Apr 17, 2007 9:29 am

I was in Reno last weekend and stopped at a nice little Brewpub. It's called The Brew Brothers and it's inside the Eldorado Casino. They had seven microbrews on tap but usually have eight. Beers on tap were a Hefeweizen, Pilsner, IPA, APA, Brewmaster Selection (Biere de Garde when I was there), American Amber, and Stout. I had the IPA, APA, and the American Amber. The IPA was good, had a nice hop flavor and aroma to it, the Pale Ale was pretty dull, not very hoppy at all, the Amber was my favorite. This had a very nice malty flavor supported well by the hop flavor. The food there is very good and they have a very nice selection. They have a live band there every night. A band called Audio Boxx was there last weekend. The one down side is because they have a live band they close the kitchen around 9:00pm. This sucks in Reno when your looking for something to eat around 10 - 11pm. You'll need to go else ware for food and return there if you want their beer. Over all I'd recommend stopping there if your going to Reno. The place has good food and good beer just make sure you get there before 9:00 pm. It gets very crowded in there after 9:00.

Here's a link to their website.

AHHHH! You didn't go to Great Basin Brewing company??? One of the best I've ever been to, its technically 5 miles north of Reno.

Oh well, next time.

Yeah I liked brew brothers, they had some pretty good beer.

Theres also, Copper Peaks Brewing, or something like that.

I was there for the National Bowling Tournament. I was staying at Circus Circus which is only three blocks from the stadium. Since the stadium was so close me and the other guys decided not to get a rental car. I heard about Great Basin when I was there. We decided the next time we're there we are definetely getting a rental car.

Yeah you gotta check out Great Basin if youre out there again. When I was there they had 14 beers, including Alt, IPA, and a Jalapeno Mexican lager that was actually really good!

It also doubles as the local Cleveland Browns transplant bar, as the owner is from Port Clinton OH. Theres Browns memorabilia all over the place.

Oh and it just hit me, the other brewpub is Silver Peaks.

Brew Brothers was pretty good when I was there about two years ago. It was very inexpensive as well.

They comp'd me 6 pints while I slooooowly played a video poker machine at the bar. I ended up losing $5. Great price for some good beers. Of course, I left a nice tip.

It's in Sparks and to be honest, I've had several poor experiences there. The beer is good enough but the service can be pretty bad.

I never thought I'd like a brewery based in a casino, but Brews Brothers makes waiting for my wife to finish losing all her money tolerable.

Silver Peak is pretty good and has two locations, one just off Virgina past the downtown casino strip and another in the great new, revitalized area by the river.

None of the Reno breweries are top notch, just above average maybe, but are that city's only redeeming qualities, IMHO.
