Great Basin Brewing Company was established in 1993 and is Nevada's oldest brewery. The original location in Victorian Square in Sparks is still going strong. A second location was added in Reno in 2010. Both have lots going on like live music and open mics. There are facilities for meetings and private parties. The signature brew at Great Basin is locally famous Ichthyosaur India Pale Ale - just say "Gimme an Ichy." A third, smaller location opened in 2012, as a result of Great Basin buying the equipment and storefront of Buckbean Brewing Company when it went out of business.
