Soul-lifting Brews & Bites

When you're fresh off the mountain slopes, MacDuffs Public House in South Lake Tahoe has exactly what you're craving: a round or two of fine craft brews and some standout pub fare, all delivered in a jolly tavern atmosphere. The menu goes well beyond your typical bar-food staples: Tuck into beer-battered fish-and-chips, truffled mac-&-cheese, elegantly concocted salads, and--maybe best of all--a varied lineup of top-class pizzas coming out of the pub's wood-fired oven.

And for beer connoisseurs, the tap list usually has some local and regional brews mixed in with the familiar standbys: Solicit the advice of the barkeep or your fellow patrons, and enjoy a taste tour of Tahoe's homegrown craft-beer scene.
