Appealing food and a good craft beer are often a good combination. Homewood Mountain Resort in Lake Tahoe will host an Aug. 28 event that brings the two together.
Summer travelers and foodies interested in this culinary experience are invited to dine on Tahoe’s West Shore. Homewood Mountain Resort will host a Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival on August 28, featuring food trucks, live music and a craft beer garden.
Sponsored by Lagunitas, OnCourse Events and Lake Tahoe Television, the event runs from noon to 4 p.m. and is free and open to all ages. An array of beers will be available for purchase by guests ages 21-older, including taps from Lagunitas, Great Basin, Track 7, Founders and Elysian.
Festival attendees will have the option of buying a “flight” for $15 that will allow them to sample all taps on-site. The food truck lineup will include food for purchase from Starkeys Food Truck, Red Truck, EATS Truckee and IceCycle Creamery. Live music will be performed by Jeff Jones and Brad Perry.
In addition, West Shore Café has continued popular events, including its Full Moon Parties and al fresco dining nightly with live music on Friday evenings, while Homewood Mountain Resort has opened roadside casual dining spot 89 Bar & Grill and will host the return of its Farm to Peak Dinner Series.
“Summer is a popular time to be at Lake Tahoe, and also offers incredible opportunities for guests along the West Shore to dine outside,” said Ben Deinken, chef de cuisine at West Shore Café. “We look forward to welcoming our guests to enjoy special culinary experiences that are sure to be memorable, include great music, stunning lake views, and enjoyment of our creative, seasonal summer dishes.”
West Shore Café’s popular Full Moon Parties will be offered monthly through September from 5:30-8:30 p.m., featuring live music, seasonal signature dishes, and complete access to the restaurant’s creative cocktail menu and full bar. Musicians will include Jesse Kalin (August 16) and Jeff Jones (September 15). Pricing is a la carte, and advance reservations are recommended.
Offering an opportunity to engage with the resort’s chef de cuisine and enjoy an elevated dining experience, Homewood Mountain Resort’s annual Farm to Peak Dinner Series returns Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, September 4.
Guests will take the chairlift to the top of Homewood to experience mountaintop al fresco dining with a breathtaking view of Lake Tahoe. The innovative four-course dinner designed by West Shore Café’s chef de cuisine, Ben Deinken, will incorporate the freshest, seasonal ingredients available for $150 per person. Advance reservations are required and limited to the first 130 guests. Group pricing is available for parties of 10 or more.
