Looking to take in some mountain air and craft brew this summer? Then South Lake Tahoe has the event for your with the sixth annual Tahoe Brewfest returning August 26.
Tahoe Brewfest celebrates all that is special about our mountain culture; our beer, our crafts, our environment, and our community. Mark Saturday, August 26, 2023, in your calendars when we welcome beer lovers from all over the world again to enjoy a beautiful day of brew in South Lake Tahoe.
Born out of a desire to showcase the local craft brew scene and to give back to the community, the Tahoe Brewfest was the invention of Deb Brown of Cold Water Brewery. She engaged FNCTN to manage the music and then partnered with the Boys and Girls Club to provide additional event management and to receive the profits. The first year was a great success, with a very high number of out-of-town attendees, and it was clear that Tahoe has a thirst for beer and fun.
The mission of the Tahoe Brewfest is to benefit not just the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, but also local businesses and the community as a whole. We specifically chose a weekend with no other events happening. That way we won’t compete for attendees and can draw visitors to Tahoe on an otherwise quiet weekend. We are looking to partner with lodging properties, restaurants and other businesses to drive Brewfest attendees to their doors before and after the event. We also intend to run a responsible event, and will be encouraging walking and biking, shuttles from lodging or rides with local Lyft drivers to and from the Brewfest.
With a bit of luck and a lot of hard work, the Brewfest has the potential to raise much needed funding for the Club, and to become a signature South Shore event that celebrates everything about Tahoe.
