Tahoe Brewfest: Lots of people and a lot of fun.

Now that’s how you kick off summer in Tahoe! The stupendous turnout for the third-annual Tahoe Brewfest was complemented by such beautiful weather.

At the bottom of Heavenly California Lodge, the Brewfest takes over the parking lot over but it surrounds you in breathtaking views at every angle. The fun event, brought to you by Mike Peron of FNCTN and the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, keeps growing and adding great things each year.

Lots of different food and activities and games to make sure the kids aren’t left out. Cold Water Brewery had delicious root beer and optional root beer floats, Tahoe Pops also was there too keep things nice and cool on the sunny day. This is a family-friendly event and has music, too. Ike & Martin opened the day and then Dirty Cello. Another neat option is this new thing called silent disco, where you get to take a pair of headphones throughout the event and listen in, spinning different stations with a different DJ on each channel. Lots of fun to be had no matter where you went.

More than 40 breweries local and from surrounding areas to sample all kinds of beer. Since the weather was fantastic, people were comfortable and wear whatever they wanted. There were so many bridal parties this year and we found a group of guys giving their groom a great time before he gets hitched. Good spirits and beers were flowing. Everyone was all smiles and the face painting is always a big hit with young ones. It takes a lot to put this event on every year and the awesome volunteers from South Lake Tahoe Boys & Girls Club are tremendous supporters and helpers.

The Tahoe Brewfest gets more successful every year and this year was by far the biggest turnout. A favorite part of the event was the photo booth by Tahoe Production House Don’t forget to bring your umbrella (not for rain but to block out the sun). This little redhead reporter is fried, but with all smiles). A big thanks to Tiffany Tio of Purple Door Photography for her contributed photo work.
