Think you know good guacamole? Well here is your chance to put your taste buds to the test.

Lake Tahoe AleWorX Taproom in Stateline will host its first guac-off Saturday, Sept. 29, and you’re invited to weigh in.

Eight local contestants will be on hand putting their best guac forward, with one being crowned best guac in town by attendees. The attendees are a mix of individuals in the community and people representing local businesses.

Each ticketed attendee will be given three voting tickets and will be able to place them with their favorites. The one with the most tickets will be named best guac in town.

Tickets are $20 and come with a margarita and bottomless guacamole from the contestants. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by emailing

According to AleWorX founder and CEO Luca Genasci, the idea for the event came from one of AleWorX’s managers.

“One of our awesome managers has some experience in event planning and has executed Bloody Mary contests outside of the basin — we were brainstorming parallel events that might be unique and fun for the community and a guacamole making contest is where we landed,” Genasci said.

AleWorX also will have its usual offering of pizza, appetizers and, of course, beer.

The guac-off will likely be a taste of more events to come at AleWorX. According to Genasci, there are several similar events in the works throughout the fall and winter.

Lake Tahoe AleWorX Stateline is located at 31 U.S. 50.
