Mammoth blues and Beer Fest
The Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza was started 18 years ago by Sam Walker in the parking lot of Whiskey Creek with just ten breweries and a handful of beer lovers. With BBQ ribs on the grill and a local garage band playing on the roof of the restaurant, it was a fun beginning! The idea behind the event was simple – have fun and introduce Mammoth to the joys of handcrafted beers. The second year we threw in some real blues bands and a lot more breweries and we've never looked back. From these humble beginnings, the festival is now recognized as one of the best beer and blues festivals in the United States. FUN has always been, and continues to be, our top priority!
This is a great time to be in Mammoth Lakes. The organizers, sponsors and the town of Mammoth make it a great experience to come out to our neck of the woods, listen to some 15 bands, sample 50+ micro-brews and have a safe good time.
We'll see you here!
