Celebrating 19 Years of Amazing BBQ, Brews and Blues!

RENO, Nev. (February 19, 2014) – 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 is equal parts barbeque block party, micro-brew tasting event with more than 40 microbrews from around the world and music festival with two stages featuring non-stop rock and blues.

Past headliners have included Coco Montoya, Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, Blood Sweat & Tears, Greg Kihn Band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Canned Heat and Tommy Castro and The Painkillers just to name a few.

Attendees can wash down the hot rock and blues with some cool brews! 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. The $30 daily or $50 weekend tasting package includes an eight ounce souvenir cup and unlimited tastings during the festival tasting times of 2 to 8 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Nothing says summer like barbecue and the Eldorado has the perfect complement 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 a variety of tasty options.

There’s no better way to celebrate summer than with the 19th Annual Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews and Blues Festival, set for Friday, June 20 from 2 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visit for more information or call 888-808-7720 to book your stay.
