SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The 6th annual Tahoe Brewfest raised over $100k for the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, a non-profit that provides after school and summer programs for the community youth. Ski Run Blvd. was transformed into a large block party from Alder Ave. to Tamarack Ave. with beer enthusiasts on August 26.

The largest Brewfest in Lake Tahoe welcomed more than 2,000 people who enjoyed beer samples from 40 breweries around the western part of the U.S. More than 120 samples of beers, ciders, kombuchas and whiskey were available to enjoy during the four hour event. Three DJs, live painting, face painting, a photo booth and bubble shows were just some of the “Street Party Vibes” that was experienced on this sunny Saturday. On site were eight food vendors and 17 merchandise booths selling clothing, art, jewelry, and more.

“When the local community and other Tahoe fans come together, great things happen. Not only were there double the breweries, but the Club also raised double the funds,” said event director Aimi Xistra-Rich. “We are so blessed for all our sponsors, volunteers, breweries, vendors, artists, entertainers, DJs, and attendees for making this event the best yet!”
