The result is a beer that is both unique and tasty. Tahoe Mountain Brewing Company has two locations. The first is a brewery and taproom in Truckee. Here, you can try a wide variety of their beers, including some brews that might not be widely available. You can also pick up a growler to go if you’d prefer. The second location is on the shore of the lake in Tahoe City. This brewpub is a great family-friendly location, with indoor and outdoor seating, a fantastic view of the lake, and a menu of delicious food.
