New Brewery: Fifty Fifty Brewing Co, Truckee

Planning a trip to North Lake Tahoe anytime soon? Well, you'll want to add a stop to your list, as Fifty Fifty Brewing Company is opening their doors today, May 24! Yes, the much anticipated brewery has everything in place and 4 of their 7 house made beers ready to pour beginning at 5:00 this afternoon. The other 3 beers will be ready within the week, I have been assured.

Todd Ashman is the head brewer at Fifty Fifty, and comes to Northern California with some impressive credentials: 11 GABF medals, including honors as top Small Brewpub in the country while at Flossmoor Station.

The beers? Some standard, some not so much... keep in mind I haven't tried any of these, but have read their grain bill and hopping varieties.
