SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The Hangar’s Inaugural Beer Fest will take over the local outdoor beer garden this weekend which will be transformed to a beer get-away with 20 craft breweries, with three food vendors and DJ Josebeatz for live music during the Saturday extravaganza from 12-6 p.m. 

“There is no shortage of Beer Fest Events out there, but like our menu, we wanted to do something totally different,” said Nate Riffle, Owner of The Hangar Taproom & Bottle Shop. “We busted out the rolodex, made some calls and assembled a top-notch list of breweries that are no joke. We’re honored and psyched that all these people want to work with us, and come to Tahoe to serve some of the best beer in the country on our property!”

Trying to beat the heat isn’t the only reason for the event, proceeds will positively impact at-risk youth within the Community.

Providing refreshments are breweries including Altamont Brewing, Barebottle, Faction Brewing, Fieldwork, Fruition, Ghost town, Grains of Virtue, Great Notion, Humble Sea, Juneshine, Machine Head, Moksa, Movement, Sante Adarius, Shred, Solid Ground, There Does Not Exist Woodhouse, Wondrous, and more.

Tickets are available for $45 at

Attendees must be at least 21 years old and tickets will max out at 400. Tickets include four hours of unlimited samples, a commemorative glass and access to your own taproom for the day.

Proceeds from the event will benefit CASA El Dorado – Child Advocates of El Dorado, who provides support, empowerment, and a voice for the abused, neglected, and at-risk youth in El Dorado County. ·

According to the CASA website “CASA is a Court Appointed Special Advocate, who is a specially trained and supervised community volunteer, appointed by a Juvenile Court judge to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children by researching and monitoring cases involving children in foster care.
