tonopah brewing company

Tonopah Brewing Company’s motto is “Greatness comes from blood, sweat, and beers,” and we’ll drink to that! This local brewery and restaurant draws visitors off the Free-Range Art Highway for delicious eats and an impressive lineup of housemade beverages. Spearheaded by owners Fred and Nancy Cline, Tonopah Brewing Company offers a savory lineup that includes mouthwatering sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and ice-cold craft beer—all made with a nod to the Queen of the Silver Camp’s history.

Situated halfway between Las Vegas and Reno, this craft brewery pours porters, IPAs, hefeweizens, and pilsners—as well as made-in-house sodas—with names that hearken back to Tonopah’s mining roots. Sample a flight while chowing down on a delicious meal.

The roster has all the staples of a great microbrewery: hefeweizen, pilsner, pale ale, IPA, an Irish red, and seasonal offerings. For those who prefer non-alcoholic libations, order up a round of house-made soda (start with the root beer).

Pair a tasty craft beverage with a menu of options all prepared in-house using the freshest quality ingredients. The Nashville hot crispy chicken, cowboy burger, and Area 51 pizza are favorites. Most entrees come with a recommended beer pairing, too.

Using custom-made brewing equipment all the way from Bavaria, Tonopah Brewing Company creates beers in a traditional fashion and remains true to original beer making processes. The Clines are also owners of the iconic (and nearby) Mizpah and Belvada Hotels. After sampling beers, spend the night in Tonopah and take in the massive restoration efforts that have returned these properties to their mining-era glory.


Tonopah Brewing Company is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
