Truckee Bars and Breweries
Who Doesn't Love a Great Drink After a Hard Day of Skiing?

Truckee Bars and Breweries! A great drink is the end of a perfect day on the slopes in winter time, or a great day of exploring all the outside activities that Truckee has to offer. (Share YOUR Truckee drinking stories below and become part of this website!)

When I first moved to Truckee, I was single with two kids, (1st grade and 5th grade), and I wasn't making enough money at the time to hire a babysitter to go out very often. My visits to Truckee now typically include a nice drink with lunch or dinner!

On a recent stay with my friend at her Donner Lake cabin, we stopped off at the Bar of America on our way back to the cabin for a drink. It was a great time!
