About Lassen Ale Works
Lassen Ale Works began with two of the partners passing through Susanville, California, in 2011. Walking around the historic Uptown area, we were enthused by the history and uniqueness of the town, with the possibilities for the 150 year-old Pioneer Saloon particularly capturing our imagination. The other two partners visited and agreed that this was an opportunity that could not be missed. We formed a partnership and after a major renovation that placed strong emphasis on preserving the history of the Pioneer, we opened in May 2012.
Our Master Brewer, Erik Jefferts, specializes in ales, with a particular emphasis on hoppy ales, like IPAs, and stronger beers, inlcuding Imperial Stouts. The seven “house” Lassen Ale Works beers that are always on tap are: Bizz Johnson Blonde Ale, Almanor Amber Ale, Rooptown Red Ale, Eagle Lake IPA, Uptown Brown Ale, Pioneer Porter, and Devil’s Corral Imperial Stout.
Our stainless steel brew house and fermentation tanks are located in the back room of the Pioneer Saloon, behind large glass windows. Visitors are always welcome to come in for a bite and a beer, or a game of pool, and watch him brew.
Erik is always perfecting his recipes with smaller runs of seasonal and specialty beers, and we also sometimes have “guest taps”, featuring new brews from regional craft breweries. The selection is always changing, so stop by to see what’s on tap.
