This years Lake a Arrowhead Brewfest breaks tickets sale for the fifth year in a row with over 1000 attendees. It is obvious that next year they are going to need a bigger tent.
As a volunteer for this event and a strong supporter, it was so exciting to see so many familiar and unfamiliar faces. As I walked around with my camera for 7 hours, it was easy to get everyone to smile!
There is no surprise why everyone was smiling… BEER! There is something so great about bringing together 1000 plus people to enjoy the south lands greatest Craft Breweries and Home Brewers.
It is no secret, or at least it is not now, that I LOVE BEER. I give credit to my husband for introducing me to all the fabulous fermented flavors. I am a huge sucker for sours and will fall weak to just about anyone who brings me a bottle! 😉
To all the sponsors, breweries and home brewers who made this event possible, all the attendees who drank the sweet nectar of hops and barley say,”thank you!” Also a special thanks to the Mountain Brew Club, Lake Arrowhead Chamber of Commerce, Nolan Calkins and Jim Grant for keeping this event alive. I look forward to next year and new Brewfest memories!

It is that time of year again to start thinking about the Annual Lake Arrowhead Brewfest! This year the event will be held on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at noon on the Jensen’s parking lot in Blue Jay.
Last years attendees set a new record, it will be exciting to see how many show up this year! We want everyone to know about it, so make sure to tell your friends and spread the word. It is probably a good idea to purchase you ticket in advance if you want to receive a collector taster glass.
Remember that this event is in the dead of summer and the temperatures can get pretty high. I suggest you drink lots of water and of course do not drink and drive, make sure to get a designated driver. The designated driver Brewfest ticket is only $15.
I look forward to seeing all your faces there, I think I will even give away one free ticket, but you have to be 21 years of age… Remember to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to qualify for the drawing!
Read below a blurb from their website regarding who helps put this on and who we can expect to see at the event…
