The unofficial kick off to summer, the 18th Annual Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews and Blues festival is set for Friday June 21 and Saturday June 22. The event is equal parts barbeque block party, micro-brew tasting event and music festival with two stages featuring non-stop rock and blues.

Nothing says summer like barbecue and the Eldorado has the perfect compliment to the festival's variety of microbrews…grilled chicken, ribs, sausage and more fresh from the outdoor charbroil grill. Food booths will line Virginia Street serving everything from American favorites to tacos and Korean barbecue.

A selection of the Eldorado's own Brew Brothers' custom microbrews will be on tap along with more than 40 microbreweries from around the world including; Lagunitas, Red Hook, Sam Adams, Anhueser-Busch, Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Boddingtons, Anchorsteam, Lindemans, Unibroue, Negra Modelo, Pacifico, Newcastle, Rogue Ales, Speakeasy Ales and Lagers, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Full Sail Brewing Co., Firestone Walker Brewing Co., North Coast Brewing Co., New Belgium Brewing Co., Great Basin Brewing Co., Alaskan Brewing Co., Kona Brewing Co., Anderson Valley Brewing Co., High Sierra Brewing Co., Big Sky Brewing Co., Mad River Brewing Co., Mendocino Brewing Co., Ruby Mountain Brewing Co., Deschutes Brewery and Lost Coast Brewery. Beer lovers will appreciate the flat rate tasting fee instead of using tokens to sample brews. The new $30 daily or $50 weekend tasting package includes an eight ounce souvenir cup and unlimited tastings during the festival tasting times of 2 to 7 pm on Friday and noon to 6 pm on Saturday. Plus they’ll have a say in which brew is crowned the winner. Instead of a professional judging panel, the winner will be determined based on a “People’s Choice” award this year.

There's no better way to celebrate summer than with the 18th Annual Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival, set for Friday, June 21 from noon to 8 pm (beer tasting from 2 to 7 pm) and Saturday, June 22 from 11 am to 8 pm (beer tasting from noon to 6 pm).
