Placerville Bell Tower Brewfest (Review)

The Placerville Brewfest is one of the most enjoyable craft beer events in the Greater Sacramento area. The event is 3+ hours of geeking out on craft beer. Attendees can sample modern & delicious ales, traditional lagers, and experimental craft brews that use a variety of hops and malts.

Notes on the event:

The beer is excellent, the food trucks are fun, and there are a lot worse ways to spend several hours of your life than hanging out downtown enjoying a drink. Plus, where else can you have a beer in public near a real bell tower.
