Eldorado BBQ Brews and Blues

Guide to Eldorado’s BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival

Fire up the grills, tap the kegs and crank up the tunes for Reno’s best summer kick-off party — the Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival, June 15 and 16. The event is equal parts barbeque block party, microbrew tasting event with more than 50 microbrews from around the world and a music festival with two stages featuring non-stop rock and blues.

Tasting Packages

For the ultimate experience, you’ll want to grab yourself a tasting package. Packages include one commemorative tasting mug and an unlimited beer tasting wristband for the day of your choice.

For the real go-getters, two-day tasting packages are available.

Don’t worry, if you’re not looking for unlimited brew tastings, you can purchase tokens to sample select beers.
