WHAT TO EXPECT
Third Annual Tahoe Brewfest, a beautiful day of brews and friends
Tahoe Brew Fest
3068 Saddle Road
South Lake Tahoe, CA
Why wait ‘til Saturday? Tahoe area restaurants and breweries are eager to host you Friday night prior to the day of the Brewfest. Enjoy craft brews at killer local spots like Cold Water Brewery & Grill, South Lake Brewery, Sidellis, AleWorX and more!
Free parking will be provided at the event. Also, many of our lodging partners are within walking distance. Or, be responsible and line up your Lyft or Uber.
Biking to Brewfest? Don’t bother with that steep hill on the final stretch. This year the Tahoe Brewfest is offering all bike riders bike valet on Ski Run Blvd and free shuttle service up the major hill that leads to Heavenly’s Cal Lodge that will drop you steps from the entrance. If you feel like burning some extra beer calories, there will be bike racks available at Cal Lodge.
VIP admission begins at noon, so get here at the top of the clock to check in, grab your VIP commemorative glass, and get to gettin’.
Admission begins at 1pm, but the lines start earlier so strategize with your pals accordingly. No line-jumps, that’s rude.
The Main Event
This year our Tahoe Brewfest is kicking off summer in celebration of the endless sun. The venue is larger, there’s loads more beer, the food is a knockout and the merch is sweeter. Fill your Taster’s Only Cup, grab a bite from a delicious food vendor and find a sweet spot for the music (don’t miss the Ike & Martin set).
Bringing the family? Take the kids over for some face painting, a game of cornhole, jumbo Jenga tournament and some craft rootbeer. It’s Tahoe Brewfest, everyone’s invited! (Except dogs and other animals, sorry!)
The pouring stops at 4; the fun does not. Here’s our Tahoe Afterbrew list to keep the fun flowing your entire weekend in Tahoe, and make sure you catch our spectacular sunset!
