Featured Brews | 2 Towns Ciderhouse

First up, our Oregon friends at the 2 Towns Ciderhouse, who believe that the long history of cidermaking demands respect and deserves to be done right. 

Starting with the highest quality, whole ingredients from local farms, they take no shortcuts in crafting their ciders. They refuse to add processed sugars or concentrates and instead use slow, cold fermentation methods to allow the fruit to speak for itself. As a family-owned company, 2 Towns Ciderhouse is committed to the growth of their team and enrichment of their communities. They take pride in producing a true Northwest craft cider & on August 27th you get to sample it in South Lake Tahoe on the 5th Annual Tahoe Brewfest! 

Featured Brews | Jack Rabbit Brewing Co.

Jackrabbit Brewing Company was started in 2013 by four brewers who share a passion for full-flavored, yet balanced beers. Taking inspiration from Belgian, English and German brews, their goal has been to craft beer that is founded in tradition, but defies convention with California-style inventiveness.

Jackrabbit Brewing has a DIY ethic when it comes to their beer, they prefer to do things our own way (often, the hard way).  All of their beers’ recipes were designed and perfected by their team, and even their original 5-barrel brewing system was custom built by the Jackrabbit crew.  As you sample their beer at Tahoe Brewfest, rest assured that they poured their passion for beer into every ounce.

Featured Brews | Burning Barrel Brewing Co.

Named after the annual Burning Barrel Festival in England, Sacramento’s Burning Barrel Brewing Company is branded with a flair of devilish, punk with an almost aggressive feel to it. It’s logo has a barrel with flames coming off the side to portray the energy they put into every beer. 

Since opening their doors in 2018, Burning Barrel Brewing Co. has become known for taking popular styles of beer and adding their own spin to it. You can sample a few of their beers at the 5th Annual Tahoe Brewfest on Ski Run Blvd on August 27th! 

Featured Brews | FiftyFifty Brewing Co.

Our neighbors from across the Lake, FiftyFifty Brewing Co. originated from the concept of balance. At the brewery, they are always working to find the perfect balance of ingredients in each of their beers, as well as create a work/life balance in their beautiful location in Truckee. They’re big believers in creating balance in their lives and like to share that through their brands.

With awards and accolades including Brewery Group of the Year in 2018 from Great American Beer Festival, this is a brewery you won’t want to pass up. 

Featured Brews | Knee Deep Brewing Co.

Just added to the brewery lineup – Knee Deep Brewing Co. joins us from Auburn, CA and returns to it’s roots with brews from their family-owned Microbrewery that was born in the summer of 2010. In that first year our beer was “contract brewed” in a small brewery in South Lake Tahoe, CA. Those initial batches were in kegs only and were sold in the Reno Nevada market.

Since those humble beginnings over 10 years ago, Knee Deep beers have received numerous awards, in various events ranging from local and regional to national and international. (Our collection of awards can be viewed in our Tap Room in Auburn) The Knee Deep brand is recognized across the country, as well as in several other countries and we are known for the quality and consistency of our IPA’s and other styles. They’ll be serving up samples for you at this year’s Tahoe Brewfest!

Featured Brews | Del Cielo Brewing Co.

Based in Martinez, CA, Del Cielo Brewing Co. aim to share their excitement and curiosity for craft beer through the core believes and experiences of owners Luis and Cielomar.

They strongly believe:

  • Mi casa es tu casa
  • Their beer tastes like it comes from heaven
  • Beer tastes better together

Each of these values can be seen in every beer they make and how they interact with the community. We’re beyond excited to welcome the curiosity, passion and joy Luis and Cielomar bring to Del Cielo Brewing into the Tahoe Brewfest on August 27th!

With every 4oz sample you enjoy we join in on their mission to help you explore the world of beer!
