About Us
  Thirsty Barrel opened it's doors officially in Dec. 1, 2017.   After months of searching for a great place to open a business and a great place to live, it became clear that the Grass Valley and Nevada County area is the right choice.
  We look forward to providing you the best service and the greatest possible products we can.  We offer 30 taps of constantly rotating craft beers, great local wines, and great food to compliment both.  Plus we love dogs, bring your furry friend along to our dog freindly patio.  As we grow, it is our hopes that we become embedded as a staple in Grass Valley and Nevada County because we love our community.
   "It is my commitment to you to give you a great place to eat, drink and relax in an environment that is comfortable and fun."   " I look forward to meeting you."
