This brewpub is a premier place for those serious about beer and music. Great Basin offers a good variety of house-brewed beer, a wide variety of food for lunch and dinner and live music indoors and outdoors (weather permitting). Located in the heart of downtown Sparks’ Victorian Square and in the Reno location since July 2010, it's Nevada’s most award-winning brewery, with more than 35 local, national and international awards. Craft beers include Ichthyosaur India Pale Ale (named after the official state fossil), Jackpot Porter, Nevada Gold, Silver State Saison, Wild Horse Ale and Truckee River Red, the state's only certified organic beer. There's free live music on many nights, and it typically starts around 5:30PM.
