Lake Tahoe AleWorX Stateline

31 US-50 #105, Stateline, NV 89449
~1 mile from Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel

Lake Tahoe AleWorX notes they’re all about “pizza, beer, salad, and scenery,” and that definitely holds true. They have delicious pizza, late-night happy hours, a pour-your-own beer wall, DJ parties, and more — all nestled within the beauty that is Lake Tahoe. Be sure to try out the popular shot ski with some friends!

(PS: There are two AleWorx locations. You can also visit their second location at 2050 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, Suite #2050, South Lake Tahoe, just about 5.3 miles from our hotel!)

The Brewery At Lake Tahoe

3542 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, CA
~1.8 miles from Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel

Established in 1992, the Brewery At Lake Tahoe is the area’s original brewpub, located in a red brick building in the center of town. You’ll love the handcrafted specialty ales and wide-selection of seasonal brews. We recommend the Paramount Porter, which features a delicious chocolatey malt flavor. If you’re feeling hungry, their Michelangelo pizzas (made with their iconic Bad Ass® Ale pizza dough) are a favorite among locals. Plus, they sell a great selection of shirts, hats, and koozies that make the perfect keepsake from your Lake Tahoe vacation.
