The Beer is Flowing at Great Basin Brewing Company’s Newest Facility

RENO, Nev. (November 27, 2012) – Belly up to the bar! Great Basin Taps & Tanks—Northern Nevada’s newest brewing facility, tasting room, and concert venue is now open Tuesday through Saturday in the afternoons and evenings, offering patrons a new place to drink fresh, handcrafted brews right from the source.  

Great Basin Taps & Tanks opens its doors to the public at 3pm on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Located on East McCarran between Rock Blvd. and Mira Loma in Reno, Taps & Tanks offers a chance to enjoy Great Basin Brewing Company’s signature brews among the barrels of its largest production facility. 

As part of its grand opening festivities, Great Basin is calling on all to help feed the hungry. From November 27th through December 11th, anyone who brings in two non-perishable food items for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada will receive their second pint free of charge. Also, on Friday, November 30th, Great Basin will be giving free brewery tours of Taps & Tanks, every hour on the hour, as well as half price growler fills from 3pm to closing.

"Help us feed those in need throughout Northern Nevada and come tour our newest production facility,” said Bonda Young, owner of Great Basin Brewing Company. “We’re happy to welcome everyone into our expanded space and show people the inner workings of our trade—and it’s the perfect time to bring the community together for a great cause.”

The new brewing facility is currently in full swing, brewing and bottling Great Basin Brewing Company’s award-winning ales for local and regional distribution. The site also offers a unique concert venue and reception space for private parties and special events.
