Placerville Brewfest returns to downtown on June 28
For those wishing to sample the beers, tickets are available for $30 each in advance or $35 at the door (if there are tickets left) in Placerville at River City Bank, the Wine Smith, Cuppa Coffee & More and Powell’s Steamer Co & Pub. Or you can purchase them online at www.placervilledowntown.com.
