Alibi Ale Works ~ Brewery and Barrel House

Incline Village, Nevada

Incline's first and original brewery started the trend for our community to offer lots of spots to sip on locally-curated brews in Reno and Lake Tahoe. The Barrel House is a cozy spot where you can sample their craft by the glass, build your own flights, grab some cans, bottles, crowlers, and growlers to go.

Alibi Ale Works - Incline Public House 

Incline Village, Nevada

The Incline Public House is a comfortable, beautifully crafted space for people to gather and toast to St. Patrick, or anyone at any time. They have lots of seating indoors and out (heated for chilly days), offer a wide selection of 'frequently-rotating" Alibi beer on tap, and offer cider, wine, nitro coffee, and our team's favorite for a change of pace - kombucha. Much like their Barrel House, crowlers, growlers, cans, and bottles, and really cool Swag are available to go.

Crosby's Tavern 

Incline Village, Nevada

A local's favorite, year-round, Crosby's will be ready to celebrate the Luck of Irish with you this St. Patrick's Day. Within its casual environment, families are always welcome and the food is always a good value. As the temps warm up, be sure to check out their backyard outdoor seating wrapped with the magnificent landscaping from their neighboring "High Sierra Gardens." A peaceful stream runs alongside the picnic table seating as well.

The Auld Dubliner a.k.a. The Dub

Olympic Village/Tahoe City, California

Throughout the north shore of Lake Tahoe, celebrating St. Patrick's Day at The Dub is more than just a night on the town, it's a celebration in every sense of the word. The establishment was created to bring the spirit of a traditional Irish Pub to the Sierra and is located in the Olympic Village. They offer authentic "Irish Fayre" along with hearty American classics and light offerings as well.

Here's a local's tip not to miss: They pour 'the perfect pint" in 20oz Imperial pint glasses and you won't find a better Guinness on draught!
