The Brewery's Story

Brewery at Lake TahoeThe Brewery is Lake Tahoe's original brewpub. Established in 1992, the Brewery occupies the red brick building in the center of South Lake Tahoe. This charming old house was originally constructed in the mid 1930's.

When it opened in 1992 the Brewery's main emphasis was on handcrafted ales with a minor on food, its menu constrained by a postage stamp size kitchen. In spite of its size limitations, it became famous for pizzas with dough containing our hour Brewery at Lake Tahoe Ale.

The Brewery still makes great ales and pizzas but has augmented its repertoire of delicious menu items along with the size of its kitchen. The Brewery was opened and run by the same man for 27 years, and was purchased in 2020 by long-time locals.

Our goal is to produce the highest quality food and beverage that we can, with focus on sustainably sourced, locally grown/farmed ingredients. Every item on our menu is fresh and scratch made on site, or sourced from other local small businesses (such as our bread and ice cream). We aim to support our community and give back to the people who make Tahoe home.
