High Sierra Brewing Company Moving to Sparks

Posted: Updated:
The High Sierra Brewing Company is shifting their operations to the Baldini's Casino in Sparks.
    
They're preparing to officially launch in the fall, and you can imagine they've been busy with construction.
    
“Everything's been moving very quickly and the contractor's been working well. The City of Sparks has been working very well with us. So, everybody's been working very hard to get us open as quickly as possible,” says Jim Phalan, High Sierra Brewing Company co-owner.

It's set to be at the site of the old Fallen Leaf Buffet.
    
Before this came to life in Sparks, it was on the main drag of downtown Carson City, and they decided to not renew their lease there. So, they partnered with Baldini's back in March, and they started construction within the last week.
    
When it's finished, it'll have 15-barrel production facility with more about a dozen original brews on tap, including their popular buzzed bee honey ale.
    
On top of that it'll feature a 180-seat restaurant with a pub-style menu.
    
Officials with Baldini's told me they plan to hire dozens of people for the brewery.
    
“We're going to be offering some new jobs, about 40 more jobs here in the city of Sparks and we think that's big and I think Sparks needs it,” says Randy Wike, Baldini's Casino Director of Marketing.
    
Baldini's will let the public know when they will begin accepting applications.
    
Phalan says they hope to start their brewing process in mid-September and then open the restaurant in October.
