Brasserie Saint James is one of the younger breweries that I’ve covered, only having opened their brewpub to the public in October 2012. Starting a few years earlier in 2008 as St. James Infirmary, its focus was bringing previously unavailable beers from all around the world to the Reno, Nev. market.

Although it has only been open for a little over two years, Reno-based Brasserie St. James has already made a name for itself, having won Mid-Size Brewpub of the Year at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival. In addition, Brasserie St. James brewers Josh Watterson and Matt Watterson were named Mid-Size Brewers of the Year and three of its beers received medals: Daily Wages (gold), The Third Man (gold) and Bamberg Rauchbier (silver.)
