Tenaya Creek: Brewing Quality Craft Beer

We are an excellent beer maker. Learning the history of Tenaya Creek, this seemed to be what it believes in. It believes in its ability to make quality-tasting beers. It believes that its beers deserve to be known. This belief led the brewery to finally eliminate its food service and focus its efforts on making beers alone. This happened in 2008 – nine years after Tenaya Creek opened.

It was also in 2008 that the brewery began supplying beers to various restaurants and cafes around Las Vegas. This move spurred its growth. To keep the momentum going, Tenaya Creek added a 22-ounce bottling line to its product offerings in 2010.

In 2015, Tenaya Creek departed from its original location and moved to a new location in Bonanza Road. There, its production capacity is ten times what it produces in its initial location. It was also around this time that it was able to add a canning line.  

To date, you may get a taste of Tenaya Creek’s fine beers in various states of the United States of America. This includes Southern California, Arizona, Utah, Canada, and of course, Nevada. It also supplies beers to Allegiant Airlines. Specifically, the airlines’ western flights in the U.S.
