The three story brick building which houses all of The Depot Craft Brewery and Distillery’s operations was built in 1910 to serve as the headquarters for the Nevada-California-Oregon Railway. Originating in Reno, the railway served many locales along the 238 mile stretch to Lakeview, OR. Unlike many of Nevada’s railroad systems, the NCO catered primarily to ranchers and farmers with almost all of the cargo consisting of livestock, wool, hay and grain.
This century old building is rooted in the history and identity of our western home, and it’s with this in mind that we envisioned creating the state’s first combined brewery and distillery.
Our approach to the renovation of this Old West relic mirrored the methods we use to create our products today—with a respect for the traditions of the past combined with an innovative approach toward bringing a craft experience to our guests. The Depot Craft Brewery and Distillery is a labor of passion and a ceaseless effort to showcase and preserve our Nevada heritage by making great products to share with our friends and neighbors.
