The Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluespalooza was started in 1995 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!
