A couple of weekends ago, Greyson and I went down to South Lake Tahoe, we were able to check out a fairly new taproom and bottle shop – The Hangar.
The Hangar is an awesome venue – the taproom (featuring free popcorn) is a reused shipping container with only a few seats, and most of the seating is outside at long picnic tables. There are a few covered, heated geodesic domes for winter weather, too. The bar is leashed dog friendly, and there’s an off leash dog area right next door. The Hangar is just off of Highway 50 and next to the Upper Truckee River. The one downside to this spot is that it can get a little loud from traffic noise, but not anything that ruins the ambience. It’s a great spot to sit outside and enjoy the sun.
The Hangar obviously cares about quality beer, and I found lots of interesting beer to try. The taps switch out regularly, and you can check out the current menu here. When I was here, there was a nice mix of Sierra beers, like Sidellis Lake Tahoe, Moonraker Brewing, and Alibi Ale Works, and those from further away, like Pizza Port Brewing Company, Russian River Brewing Company and Figueroa Mountain Brewing. I really loved the Russian River STS Pils.
If you find yourself in South Lake Tahoe, I highly recommend that you check out The Hangar – it’s awesome!
