South Fork weekend extender: Brewfest 2011

Posted June 23, 2011 by Malina

If you’re headed to the South Fork of the American this weekend and feel like making a full-blown getaway out of it, check out the Placerville Bell Tower Brewfest on Saturday the 25th.

Main Street P’ville (as it’s known to locals) hosts this popular event every year and it’s always a blast.  They shut the street down to cars, crank up the live music, and invite something like 40 different brewries (I’d say “microbreweries” but the last time I went Spaten was one of the booths, and I’m just not sure that Spaten is a wee little craft brewer anymore.  But I digress) to pour samples of their tasty bevvies.

Tickets are available on line and the event starts at 6pm–perfect amount of time to get off the river, take a shower, and get into town!

Get more info on the Main Street website.  For suggestions on places to stay check out the recommendations on our wesbite.  (scroll down to the bottom to see our suggestions)
