Craft Breweries in North Lake Tahoe

If there is one culinary tradition shared by mountain towns everywhere, it's great beer. North Lake Tahoe has seen several new craft breweries pop up in the last few years. Here are a few of our favorites. 

Fifty Fifty Brewing Company in Truckee, California. One of the first breweries to lead the recent resurgance in locally made craft beer, 5050 makes the award-winning Eclipse barrel-aged stout. A full menu and large dining room make this a great option for families.

Tahoe Mountain Brewing Company in Tahoe City & Truckee. Relatively new to the craft brewing scene in Tahoe, it opened in 2012, Tahoe Mtn Brewery in Tahoe City is located right across from Commons Beach and has a great outdoor seating area for watching the passing scene. The Brewery & Tasting Room in Truckee hosts a happy hour with live music every Thursday.

Lake Tahoe Brewing Company, based in Carson City, has just opened a location in downtown Truckee. A full menu of handcrafted brews, with inspired, locally sourced food to pair with them makes this a great spot for lunch or casual dinner. 

Alibi Ale Works is a little further afield, in Incline Village, Nevada. Owned by a Tahoe locals who have been brewing for years, their beers are brewed with water from Lake Tahoe in small batches. Food is not currently served, but picnics are welcome at the bar.  We recommend stopping for happy hour if you are coming back from a day at Sand Harbor. 

Mellow Fellow in Truckee. Great for families with a super simple menu. Mellow Fellow doesn't brew, but they have over 40 American craft beers on tap and they serve locally made sausages and tasty sandwiches.

Are you a S'mores Traditionalist or a S'mores Innovator?

If there is one culinary creation that pairs perfectly with fresh mountain air, it is S'mores. Marshmallows roasted over an outdoor fire until they are perfectly gooey, then squashed between two toasty graham crackers and wilted chocolate - it's the ultimate in high mountain cuisine.

But lately, a division among S'mores connoisseurs has fostered a debate. Stick to the tradition? Or innovate?

Traditionalists make the point that there is no need to improve on perfection. S'mores have already acheived the ultimate ratio of marshmallow-chocolate-graham cracker. Why mess with a good thing?

Innovators counter that S'mores have been stuck in a rut for several decades, and, while there is place for the traditional recipe at every campfire, that new ingredients and creative combinations are bringing the nostalgic treat up to date.

Where do you fall in the great S'mores debate?

Valentine's Day Menu in Lake Tahoe takes you from love at first sight to happily ever after

Lake Tahoe dining will be an elevated experience this Valentine's Day with the sumptuous prix fixe menu from Six Peaks Grille at Resort at Squaw Creek.

The four course menu at our Lake Tahoe fine dining establishment elegantly begins with a Strawberry Salad, progresses with Seared Scallops and your choice of entree, and then ends happily ever after with a choice of desserts.

For lovers of Pacific-caught seafood, there will be no need to ponder the menu long. The Seared Halibut pictured here is prepared with a black garlic emulsion, roasted brussel sprouts, toasted pine nut gremolata, picked sprout leaves, pea tendrils, watermelon radish, and a minted moscato vinaigrette.

The Valentine's Day menu is offered for $115 per person. Wine pairing is $30 per person.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 530.581.6621.
