Our Cans HAVE A Fancy New Wardrobe

Welcome

Hi there! We’re Team Alibi. Nice to meet ya! We’re the Good Times Enhancer for our North Lake Tahoe and Truckee communities. We brew amazing beer in one of the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. But more than that, we operate three beautiful public houses where we strive to create memorable analog experiences for happy humans fueled by a diverse selection of beer, food and events. We’ll see you soon!

Alibi Ale Works staff

beer + live music = great times

Two nights. Two Venues. Two incredible performances.

The Coffis Brothers are coming back to Alibi and this time they’re bringing the one & only Tim Bluhm with them for back to back show. All-american, folksy, bluesy, good-time music. Snag your tickets below. 

Drink Alibi

We brew beer on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe – one of the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. Lake Tahoe is the source of our brewing water, too. Which is pretty rad. We specialize in beer-flavored beers that you can accidentally drink three of. But sometimes we like to get weird. Like fermenting a beer with wild yeast from our bee hives. Or putting entire juniper branches into our boil kettle. Our talented brewers obsess over beer quality and have the creative freedom to adjust and improve our beers every day, take risks and have fun. The proof is in the pint. Come sample the 16+beers on draft at each of our pubs and you’ll see what we mean. Cheers!

Alibi Ale Works Core Beers: Kolsch, Pale Ale, IPA, Porter

Experience Alibi

Come relax and unwind with us at one of our beautifully designed pubs for the full Alibi experience.

Beyond Beer

Our first love is beer. But Alibi and tasty food are definitely going steady.

Alibi Anonymous

We created Alibi Anonymous for our tribe. It’s our way of saying thank you to our loyal fans and growing a community of beer-lovers in the Tahoe/Truckee/Reno area. Members get sweet discounts on all things beer and merch (both in our pubs and online), invitations to member-only events with our brewers and owners, and input on member-only beers. (Pro Tip: if you drink more than 1 pint per week at Alibi pubs and are not a member yet, you are officially losing money!)

AWESOME little brewpub. Fantastic place to hit up after skiing. I had what is maybe the best IPA I've ever had - crisp, flavorful, and absolutely delicious. Hot wings are hot, pretzels are huge and mustache-shaped, and the staff is incredibly friendly. Really nifty vibe - absolutely worth a visit!

Best brewery anywhere around Lake Tahoe! I love all their beer, but especially the Porter, the IPA batches, the Contradiction Stout, the Strawberry Funkmobile, the Saison Nouveau, the Pale Ale, but seriously, everything is bomb here! Check it out!

Stopped by Alibi after a snow hike on the recommendation of our guide. The nachos were so GOOD and I loved the Red Ale. Lot of seating, lots of restrooms, friendly staff, lots of beer options and great food! 5 stars all the way
