Wonderlust is to yogis as Brews, Jazz and Funk is to beer drinkers.
Forget Outside Lands. This weekend, August 13 and 14th, thousands of red nosed partygoers will decend on The Village for Squaw Valley’s premier drinking event of the year, the annual Brews, Jazz, and Funk Festival. This year marks the festivals 10th anniversary and is sure to get you f&*%ed up and bustin’ dance moves you wouldn’t normally do in public.
Up to 20 breweries will be in attendence and headliners THE METERS experience (Saturday) and Zero (Sunday) can jam with the best of them.
Festivities start at 2pm both days and run through 8, followed by what I’m sure will be numerous after parties. Dogs are allowed, entry is a $5 donation to the Truckee-Tahoe Humane Society and beers are $4 bucks a pop. Go get some!
Beer vendors include Big Sky, Deschutes, Eel River, Feather Falls, Fossil Fuels, Franziskaner, Full Sail, Gordon Birsch, Great Basin, Lagunitas, Lockdown, Mad River, Mammoth, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Spaten, Stone, Sudwerks, and Trumer.
