What to Expect at the 5th Annual Tahoe Brewfest

The 5th Annual Tahoe Brewfest is bringing you an elevated experience with good brews, bites, & Tahoe vibes.

You can expect dozens of local vendors, 23 delicious unlimited craft breweries setup for unlimited tastings, plus we’re family-friendly! There will be 5 hours of awesome jams by the Tha Exchange feat. Whitney Meyer and The Tahoe Tribe.

Don’t forget some brew bites that complement a hoppy double IPA and refreshing wheat ale. Come join us, eat, drink, and chill in the mountains.

Everyone’s invited! (Except Fido – we love animals but unfortunately, all animals need to sit this one out and keep the couch warm at home, sorry!)

All of this will be setup in the heart of South Lake Tahoe on Ski Run BLVD. To enjoy endless craft brew samples from all of our different breweries, you must buy a ticket to Tahoe Brewfest.
