Notes

Visited: May 6, 1995

Opened: 1993

Annual Production: 2,500 bbl

Contributor: Herb Adams

Standard Gordon Biersch format. A controlling interest in the company was sold to a Las Vegas casino in November 1995...the new team opened Barley's Casino and Brewing in Henderson NV in early 1996.

Directions: Kinda hard to find this place...it's back in an alley off Colorado Avenue. Best bet is probably to go to Crown City and ask...Gordon Biersch is only a couple of blocks away.
