Unless you have a love for all things divey, you might not think there’s a whole lot of reason for dropping into the inconspicuous Office Bar in the Fruit Loop near Hofbrauhaus. But appearances can be deceiving, and this joint is a must-visit for any serious beer drinker.
Office Bar is a throwback: a smoky, dimly lit gaming bar. But it has a remarkable draft selection—14 taps offering local beers alongside microbrews from Northern Nevada and beyond. Recent selections have included Revision’s grapefruit-tinged Baggage Wagon New England-style IPA, Able Baker’s robust Chris Kael Impale’D imperial brown ale and Lead Dog Brewing’s delicious Peanut Butter Stout. You can certainly order a watery, mass-produced lager here, but it won’t be coming out of a tap.
One added bonus: the Beer Zombies Pop-Up Bottle Shop, which, contrary to its name, serves a wide variety of constantly rotating but primarily canned offerings, including the latest Beer Zombie collaborations alongside beers from rarely encountered breweries like Connecticut’s Fat Orange Cat Brew Co.—Lorenzo the Beer Cat couldn’t be more adorable!—and Tehachapi, California’s local craft beer. My only complaint? There isn’t a printed menu at Office Bar, and the website isn’t updated frequently, so consider it an effort in beer exploration.
But wait, there’s more! You can order from neighboring Naked City Pizza’s full menu without leaving your seat. Great pizza and beer? What more could you want?
