They’re really good at the two things they specialize in: grilled cheese and beer. The house brews rotate frequently and the beers they poured the night of our visit were very tasty. The environment was also a vibe and service was friendly:) Side note: really delicious pickles too!

We stumbled across this place on our way from Kansas City to Arroyo Grande. Delicious sandwiches, great beer, helpful staff, friendly patrons, and live music. We had a great time. I enjoyed the food, beer, and singing with the band! Thanks for the memories!!

You will probably never have the same beer twice. This brewery is on a rotating tab which is really great! The owner likes to experiment and he’s more than willing to let you try his new brew before you buy it. The bar has plenty of room and there’s plenty of seating for eating. This is kind of a locals brewery but all are welcome! There’s lots of great art on the wall and the new food menu is really tasty! Lots of grilled sandwiches and Panini‘s. They also stocked a number of other local beers that you can drink at the bar or you can take cans to go. Definitely worth a stop!

Where the good vibes flow

We are a pico (smaller than nano) brewery in Truckee, CA. We usually have 6-7 of our own in-house brews on tap as well as a few other local favorites, and a stellar selection of beers & wines in the can/bottle available for onsite enjoyment and to-go. Our selection of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches also go great with our brews. 

Guests enjoy our laid-back, local vibe. We enjoy meeting locals, newbies & passers-through. Truckee attracts amazing people from all over the world & we LOVE sharing our love for the community & our beautiful natural setting with everyone we meet! 

Our space is a cozy, family-friendly place. We have a beautiful pool table (what many people say is the best in Truckee) and offer a number of other fun board games plus Pac Man! All the games we have are free to play - including the pool table! 

We do broadcast sporting events from time to time on our big screen projector, but more often you'll find adventure sports POV reels looping in the background - we love mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, surfing, kayaking, lacrosse, disc golf & more! Our motto is "Earn Your Beer, Then Come Here!" We love being the watering hole for folks to share their post-adventure stories & we even host slideshows & other events like live acoustic music, comedy & more.

You can also START your adventure at Donner Creek Brewing Friday-Sunday. We open at 7am for coffee drinks & breakfast paninis! 

Bring the kids! And the pets - so long as they are short-haired & well behaved and ENJOY! :) We love sharing the STOKE at Donner Creek Brewing & can't wait to share it with you!
