Beer Trails, Breweries, and More

After spending the day out in the Lake Tahoe playground, the best way to relax and unwind is with a frosty pint of local craft beer. The art of craft beer has taken the nation by storm within the last few years, and Lake Tahoe has joined the ranks full force! New breweries have been popping up all over town, offering unique and signature brews paired with creative pub cuisine. 

The lake’s crystal-clear waters inspire more potent stuff, too. Local distilleries, including Tahoe Blue Vodka, create modern and refreshing takes on traditional favorites that add a decidedly alpine twist to your favorite cocktail recipe. Slaking your thirst couldn’t be easier – and more delicious – at Lake Tahoe.
