Cold Water Brewery & Grill fits the bill for a great brewpub, and there are several extra calling points. One is that this is the only female-owned brewery in the region. Two is that they are the only all-grain brewery around these parts as well. A honey and amber color scheme complements the wood floors, walls and furniture for a warm atmosphere, while the five huge television screens, full bar and weekly specials and events keep things fun. They serve California comfort food that pairs with their Tahoe craft beer (all brewed on-site), and if you need an introduction to the brews, try Mr. Toad’s Wild Rye. Those more into craft beer may want a taste of Tahoe Cross to go with their Grilled Scottish Salmon or Cold Water Burger. For Sunday brunch, don’t miss Cold Water’s Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar.
