Great Basin Brewing Company started out as a dream for Tom Young. He faced many obstacles, including laws that prohibited beer production. Today, Nevada’s oldest brewery is possible partly because Tom helped to get legislation passed that allowed the production of beer.
Opening in 1993, Tom and his wife Bonda learned through trials and tribulations how to run a restaurant and brewery. As the years passed, popularity grew and Great Basin became the local place to go for great beer, great food and a great time. To help with rising demand of great local craft beer, Great Basin opened the second location in Reno in July 2010. Opportunities allowed Great Basin to open the Taps & Tanks location in 2012 as a production facility and taproom.
