The Brewery at Lake Tahoe's Handcrafted Specialty Ales


WASHOE WHEAT® ALE

An unfiltered ale, it has a distinct wheat flavor and a slight hint of citrus.

NEEDLE PEAK® ALE

The Needle Peak® is an American style pale ale that uses only American ingredients. A beautiful golden-blonde in color, this beer has the perfect combination of mellow hops and a toasted malt finish

PALISADES PILSNER

A German Pilsner brewed with Belgium's finest barley and a select German lager yeast. Our lightest beer in both color and body, the Palisades Pilsner is a brew that will please any beer drinker's palate.

INDIAN PALE® ALE

The Indian Pale® Ale is our most aggressively hopped brew. It is a light golden in color with a very strong hop profile. We dry hop this beer(which is adding hops to the beer after fermentation) for a nice floral aroma. If you like strong, bitter beers, then this is the choice

BAD ASS® ALE

As our signature brew, the Bad Ass® Ale is really a style of its own. Our brewers handcraft this ale to be the perfect balance between its malted barley and choice hops. Deep burgundy in color and high in alcohol, enjoying a pint of the Bad Ass® is a real roller coaster ride. At first the pronounced hop flavor hits you smack in the mouth. Then, the crystal malts start to really work their magic on your palate, finishing with a smooth bitterness. This beer is really for those who ARE "Bad Ass®"

ALPINE AMBER® ALE

The Alpine Amber® ale is a very smooth ale. A classic amber ale that is light in body with a pleasant caramel malt finish. Adding just the right amount of hops for ideal spiciness, the Alpine Amber® is truly a sensational beer

PARAMOUNT PORTER®

The Paramount Porter® is a life changing experience. Using a wide variety of specialty malts, this beer fills your palate with a pleasant chocolate essence and a robust malt flavor. We brew this beer to be amazingly light bodied so you can enjoy one after another, after another, after another...

SEASONAL BREWS

BELGIAN-STYLE WHITE ALE

"WOW!!!" That is the usual response from someone trying our Belgian Wit for the first time. We import a Bavarian Yeast from Belgium and orange peel from Curacao to make this beer so special. Adding just the right amount of coriander for spice, the Wit is a great choice on a sunny Tahoe day

STAR LAKE STOUT

The Starlake Stout is an oatmeal stout that is extremely dark and full bodied. Opaque in color, the rich roasted flavor and rolled oats give this brew its winning taste any beer drinker will love

KILLIBREW BROWN ALE

The Killibrew Brown Ale uses specialty malts from 4 different countries. This ale offers a unique nut flavor and an intense long lasting malt profile
