Brewing incredible, award-winning beers with unique flavors and an adventurous spirit.
Truckee Pub & Pilot Brewery
There’s no better place to experience the best of FiftyFifty than at the Pilot Brewery & Pub in Truckee. We serve all our annuals alongside our tasty seasonals on tap. Plus, it’s a full-on restaurant with an amazing menu of pub inspired plates and local favorites.
We make the best damn beer possible because sharing and innovating the FiftyFifty beer experience is what gets us up in the morning.
Truckee Blonde Reserve
Who doesn’t love a blonde with an attitude? Our lightest ale hasn’t met a thirst it couldn’t quench with its crisp, clean finish.
Stouty Chocolatey Perfection was going to be the name, but it felt long. This gem is thick and rich, it’s chocolatey and it’s a little orangey - and, it’s as good as it sounds. Do not lick your fingers after. OK, you can lick your fingers after.
Manifesto Pale Ale
With a light malt backbone and a little touch of hop, the Manifesto Pale rounds itself off to a moderate citrus pine finish – making it the embodiment of the perfect 5050 balance. Which is probably why this original 2007 creation is a go-to favorite for the 5050 crowd.
Leg Lifter Pale Ale
It’s a pale ale with delicious berry and earthy tones (thanks to Amarillo and Mosaic hops if you were wondering) and just by drinking it our local homeless pets get a leg up - so you should probably order it already - because $1 of every pint is donated to the Humane Society of Truckee Tahoe.
In our California Pale Ale (CAPA), you can’t miss the grapefruit and citrus aroma dancing on the head of this tasty creation made with Citra and Eldorado hops. This is as West Coast as West Coast comes.
Session 267 IPA
Easy drinking, Truckee style. This crisp IPA is brewed with Azacca hops delivers with notes of mango and papaya and balances out with a mild malty profile. Bring on those hot Sierra summer days.
A ‘West Coast’ style IPA brewed with aggressive amounts of American hops, Rockslide greets you with a full-frontal assault of citrus/grapefruit/pine hop character, followed up with malt to balance the mouthfeel. A boldly balanced IPA, but make no mistake, this beer is all about the hops.
Charles B. Brown
Mildly roasted, massively good. If you’re looking to cut back on your hops but load up on flavor, this dark brown Charlie brew might be your jam. This is our high gravity take on an English Brown with dark brown highlights, mild roasted character and subtle hints of chocolate to bring it home.
Donner Party Porter
DPP is one tasty porter that will get you through the harshest winter. This complex pint’s flavor profile includes hints of oak cakes, molasses, smooth rich dark chocolate, mocha and espresso. That, my friends, is what we call a robust, almost historical porter, and why we say "your friends never tasted so good!"
Chocolate Milk Stout
Let’s start with the obvious - chocolate is delicious. Chocolate Malt in the brewing process is even more delicious. Sips that round off with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, yeah - you get the idea. Chocolate Milk Stout, straight up delicious.
Old Conundrum Barley Wine
Strong and complex. A showcase of malty richness and intense lively flavors. One of the strongest beer styles that is sure to warm you down to your soul. Not for the timid.
Eclipse Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
One of the most epic beer tasting experiences you will ever have; this is what you get when you take our Totality Imperial Stout and age it in select oak bourbon barrels. We always try and have one of these on tap at the Brewery, and our limited release bottles are available until sold out.
This is the one.
Our award winning Imperial Stout aged in specially curated oak bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries. Then, each limited edition batch is identified by the color of the wax top. We always try and have one Eclipse on tap at the Brewery, and our limited release bottles are available until sold out.
The 5050 Brewers Intent program is an exclusive bottle club that allows members access to some of our specialty barrel-aged brews, most of which cannot be found in distribution. Some of the brews that will be a part of this program haven’t even been created yet, including some sour projects and experimental barrels. This is not an Eclipse club, but we do offer some experimental Eclipse bottles as part of the program.
