Sierra Tap House
Underneath Sierra Tap House's metal-banded glass lamps, between its yellow walls and exposed brick, patrons gather around polished wood tables. In warm weather, they also spill outside onto a patio overlooking the Truckee River, which grants views of downtown parades and destructive rampages by radioactive parade floats. The small pub first opened its doors in the midst of the 2006 Reno River Festival. Since then, its staff has poured imported and American beers, as well as 11 rotating draft beers from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company—such as Torpedo Extra IPA, Knightro irish stout, and Celebration ale. Servers pair these pints with simple bar food such as pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, and chicken wings.
