Lazy days on the beach hearing the waves crash against the shore… The smell of fresh mountain air and exploring the trails around Lake Tahoe. There’s nothing like a summer’s day in South Lake Tahoe as the area transforms into a lake paradise. With warm days and cool evenings, it’s the perfect place to get away from the Central Valley heat or even the East Coast. For this stunning time of year, we’ve decided to ramp up our drink offerings to match the amazing weather at what we hope you consider the best beer garden in South Lake Tahoe. This week, let’s go into some of our newest additions to our beer line-up.

New Summer lineup of Beers at Blue Angel

Trooper – Inspired by Iron Maiden, hand crafted by Robinsons

Best beer garden in South Lake Tahoe Iron Maiden Trooper Blue Angel Cafe SummerWe’re always looking for beers that aren’t just refreshing but bring back fond memories. This is where the Trooper comes in. With its Iron Maiden graphics, this beer takes us back to the days of blasting rock n’roll in high school and driving around in a Camaro Z/28. A premium British beer with malt flavors and citrus notes, it has the taste of deep molasses with subtle hints of lemon.

Seismic – Shatter Cone

What do you think of when you hear the two words “Shatter Cone?” To us, the first thing that comes to mind is one of those massive pinecones falling out of a pine tree in front of our cafe shattering upon impact. If you thought the same thing you’re close! It’s actually a rare geological feature when a meteorite hits bedrock. Just like the name infers this beer by Seismic brewing will leave an indelible impression on your taste buds shattering the status quo of what you’d expect in an IPA. A truly unique India Pale Ale that goes perfect with our one-of-a kind Elk burger.

Victory Brewing – Sour Monkey

Victory Brewing Sour Monkey Blue Angel Summer South Lake TahoeThe colorfully bright label reminds us of a psychedelic tie die t-shirt. Sour Monkey puts a tastefully tart twist on their Golden Monkey’s sweet, fruity essence. A sharp, citrus-laden tang makes this brew a Monkey all its own!

Best Beer Garden in South Lake Tahoe

As we mentioned last weekend, the Ski Run Farmer’s Market is in full swing EVERY Friday through August and now you can enjoy each of these new beers in our beer garden. With a relaxed atmosphere, umbrellas on each of our tables, and amazing food to pair it with, any day in what we consider the best beer garden in South Lake Tahoe is the right time to enjoy yourself at Blue Angel Cafe.

Stay tuned as we continue to highlight our newest editions to our summer line-up of drinks. So, raise a glass and toast to another amazing day in Lake Tahoe. Prosst!
