We’re throwing a party fitting of our historical roots here on the Comstock, including our fan favorites and a couple of new surprises.

Our craft brews' names come from the mining stories from our past as well as paying respect to our community today. Look for our 601 IPA, YellowJacket Honey Pale Ale, C Street Wheat, Marlette Red, Dirty Mucker Stout, Silver State Double IPA and Steampunk Extra Pale Ale.

Virginia City Brewery and Taphouse’s story starts with three partners and a brewer. From there you could say, the rest is history. In fact, the rich history of Virginia City is what motivated these entrepreneurs to build, brew and serve their creations in the town that originated brewpubs in the state dating back to 1860.

The Virginia City Brewery and Taphouse follows a long line of historical brewers in this city. 1860 saw the first brewery in the state, Carson City Brewing Company. After this brewery opened, several other local Virginia City breweries called the town home from the mid-1860s through the early 1900s.

Fast forward many decades and the Virginia City Brewery and Taphouse makes it mark as the first brewery to operate in this historic town since 1995. Come out Saturday, March 5 from noon to 6 p.m. to celebrate where it all started. Booze, bites, raffles and more!
