About The Depot
The Depot Brewery and Distillery is housed inside a three-story brick building with a rich history. Built in 1910, the building served as the headquarters for the Nevada – California – Oregon Railway which served many ranchers and farmers along its 238-mile stretch. This building, with its rich history, served as the inspiration for creating the state’s first combined brewery and distillery. Championed by head of business development Chris Shanks and brew master and distiller Brandon Wright, the partners created a unique dining experience unlike any in the region.
