My niece got married in 2015 in August. I was scared!!! Loved it. Cute great outdoor sitting (no indoor). Picnic, or just chill. I brought my husband back because he couldn't go to the wedding and he loved it. We will return. Over, and Over.

No food. Not good service. Very laid back. Too much for me. I like to mingle and make friends. Eat before you go or take it with you.

World class brews in the most pleasant woodsy setting - feel free to pick up your pizza at FOOD + DRINK in Blairsden and enjoy your lunch with a pint or two. The brewery and its setting are very customer friendly - where else can you find a brewery at the end of a dirt road??

This is a great place to meet up with friends and family to have a beer or two, hang out, bring your own food to BBQ, play Frisbee golf. The beer is super hoppy.

Great beer and great atmosphere! This is a great place to taste local craft beer and hang out on their patio. They are dog friendly so bring your pooch!

Visited the brewery the other day with friends who live in the area. Very much enjoyed the experience. Rustic feel with beautiful decks, seating, picnic tables. Grassy area for play and a frisbee course, all nestled amongst the Ponderosas. Add to that a couple pints of excellent beer and a picnic lunch, you have the recipe for a wonderful afternoon....

We were in need of a little refreshment on recent ride through the "Lost Sierra" and found the Brewing Lair like we do most things - - Ask Google. Never one to shy away from trying something new, we pulled up the long dirt drive (you can almost miss the sign if you're going too fast), and found a spot... More

Great place if all you like is Pale Ales. Seems like all of their beer is very Pale "Aleish". Even the stout tastes like it is a Pale Ale. Very nice outdoor patio that is being upgraded all the time.

The concept is unique but the beer is just too green for our tastes. We prefer a beer with less bite. So in the future we'll probably just picnic at our campsite or go to a public picnic area with a growler from our favorite local brewery.

It's always nice to stop by and see Susan and Rich, have a beer or two with friends and just chill. They have made quite a nice place in the woods of Blairsden.
