The Carson Peak Inn is a throwback to a bygone era, in the most incredible way—dark green vinyl booths, wood paneling, mounted trout and game birds on the walls, mood lighting, and an old, dark bar.
Ah, Nevados. It’s the place you go to get strong gin & tonics, even stronger shots of whiskey, and generally an all-around festive atmosphere. Show up during any happy hour (5:00-6:00 p.m.) and you’ll find the bar full of Mammoth locals, most of whom are already tipsy, shooting the breeze with the long time bartenders.
Mountain Rambler Brewing Company is the brainchild of perfectionist Joe Lane, and it shows. Lane’s little touches are everywhere, from the sweet logo on the growlers (an imprint of a hiking boot) to the sound-absorbing panels he’s installed in the building to make the acoustics better for visiting bands (he brings some real talent to little old Bishop).
