Stopped in for a couple beers: Highland Session and Charles on the rye. They were fine. I just had some fries, which were good, but I’m not going to rate food off of a plate of fries. The service was prompt and good. The value pretty standard. They had 14 of their own on tap with some interesting looking barrel aged versions. Worth stopping in if you’re trucking through Truckee.

A must stop on my honeymoon. We were there the end of April.
The location of this place is absolutely beautiful. Its just of I-80 in the Donner Pass and a really short drive from both Reno and Lake Tahoe-so there's a lot to do around here for a weekend trip if you live in CA or are driving to CA (as we were). It is set in a plaza of log lodge-style buildings-all commercial. The interior is as you would expect-log cabin style. Not really much else to say there.
Selection and Quality- FiftyFifty is most well known for their eclipse bourbon barrel stout series of which they had one on tap- old FItzgerald. Fantastic. Other beers they had on tap included a old conundrum barleywine, barrel aged barleywine, imperial stout, donner party porter, their regular line-up, plus rye pale ale, summit pale ale and maybe 4 wheat. My husband really enjoyed the entire selection only finding the blonde ale to be lackluster (but I guess that's the point.) After sampling all their brews we ordered the old fitzgerald, the barleywine, the BA barleywine, and the summit pale ale. We grabbed a growler of the Donner Party Porter to go plus bought a few bottles of totality imperial stout.
Service- We got their when the place opened on a Wednesday morning in late april and sat at the bar. The bartender treated us very well plus we got a little history about how the brewmaster is a Chicago guy. I think they were impressed we drove all the way out there from the PA/OH border and made it a point to stop here on our honeymoon.
Food- My husband likes his burgers rare-and that was not a problem here! I ordered the bourbon shrimp-which was also delicious.
Overall- This is a fantastic brewpub that makes great, but pretty traditional beers.

Stopped by here for lunch and some beers on our drive from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco.
Atmosphere is about what you'd expect for a brewpub. A nice bar, along with restaurant seating, and a nice outdoor patio area where we sat. clean, nice interior. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable, and food came quickly.
Selection and quality was top notch. They had about a dozen "standard" beers on tap, then some barrel aged specials. You could definitely find a style for your liking. All of the beers I tried were excellent. Any if someone in your party doesn't like beer they had a cocktail list. Food was very good - I had a blue cheese bacon burger with sweet potato fries and my wife had mussels.
Definitely recommend if you are in the area!

Nice little pizza joint in a beautiful mountain town. Super friendly staff. Good tap selection, plus bottles of Eclipse's to go. Had some Old Fitzgerald on tap. Kinda pricey but well worth it. Didn't get a chance to try the food but from what I saw it looked good. Definetly going back.

Visited this place for the Eclipse release. The actual restaurant itself is a touch small with the bar area being in my opinion the right size. Needless to say the atmosphere for the party was absolutely insane. I did stop in earlier in the day to check the place out and it was filled with locals and had a good vibe. The service was second to none. I pretty much hung out at the bar all night and chatted with the bartenders Justin and Tiffany were both awesome and very helpful. The selection of food and were beer were just right. Not to much to point where you just get uninterested and not too little to the point where you really can't find what you are looking for. The food was tasty and worth the price. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone and hopefully I will be able to land another ticket for next years release

Great place up in North Lake Tahoe. The inside is well thought out with numerous tables and a nice bar. Outside eating area as well, which is covered in the winter/colder months.
Service has always been good, no problems there. Food is not bad but a bit pricey. Beer is a bit pricey comparable to other brewpubs as well, but the quality is certainly there. They generally have a stout or two (usually Totality and sometimes Eclipse, the barrel aged version of Totality), 1-2 IPAs and a few lighter brews on tap (generally between 6-8 house brews on at once).
Their stouts are outstanding, particularly Eclipse and I enjoy the IPAs as well (Rockslide, Landslide, RyePA, Red is the new black IPA). Growlers are available.
By far one of the best spots to stop off at in the area and highly recommended if you're in the area. Very nice atmosphere and well worth a visit.
