Arthur Farley - Principal Owner & operator

Born in Los Angeles, and owner of two very successful Northern Nevada businesses: St. James Infirmary voted Best Bar in Northern Nevada 5 years in a row, and Brasserie Saint James the only Nevada brewery to ever be named 'Best Mid-Size Brewpub and Brewers In The Nation' at the Great American Beer Festival (the largest and most prestigious judged beer festival in the world). 

A thirty year veteran of the restaurant business, having worked in food and beverage since childhood, first at my mother's restaurant, and later running restaurants, bars, and concert venues in Los Angeles, Portland, and Dallas. I work closely with my kitchen. I write the menus before meeting with the cooks, and it's my distinct pleasure to seem them breath their own life into them. 

I'm also very lucky and grateful, to work hand in hand with the brewery. I bring not just my love for the lagers of Europe; lambics, saisons and Trappists ales of Belgium; cask ales of the United Kingdom; but also my love of the great sparkling wines of France, Pinot Noir and Chardonnays of Burgundy, German Rieslings, Alsace's dry white wines, Cab Francs of Chinon, all influence my approach to brewing. We have a lot of fun discussing and designing our brews.

I've been an avid food lover, foodie or gastro tourist long before there were terms for it, or television shows dedicated to it. In Reno, I've been proud to play a very large part in changing the craft beer scene, and the bar scene along with it, with the opening of St. James Infirmary in 2008. I brought dozens of beers to the public that mostly didn't even exist in the market. My cocktail program has playfully informed people on the history of the cocktail, while creating quite a few new ones along the way. I never underestimate my customers and their desire to experience new and better things, whether it be beer, cocktails, spirits, wine, movies, music or food.
