Our 2021 Tahoe Brewfest is bringing it! You can expect awesome vendors, delicious unlimited craft brew tastings, plus we’re family-friendly! There will be 4 hours of awesome jams by the Bread and Butter Band and Mescalito. 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!) Tahoe Brewfest is also partnering up with the City of South Lake Tahoe throwing a free community event honoring our heroes who have worked so hard on the Caldor Fire. All of this will be on the practice soccer fields at Lake Tahoe Community College with Fire Trucks and other emergency vehicles in the upper parking lot. Even Smokey Bear will be in attendance with bounce houses, a climbing wall and face painting. To enjoy endless craft brew samples from our 15 different breweries, you must buy a ticket to Tahoe Brewfest.
