April 14, 2017

The San Diego Brewers Guild’s Rhythm & Brews music and craft beer festival returns along 'Hop Highway' in historic downtown Vista Village on Saturday, May 6, from 1-4pm (12pm for VIP) for an afternoon block party pairing many of the country’s most celebrated craft breweries with local musicians for its annual bookend event – the other being San Diego Beer Week in the fall. We are raffling off 2 VIP tickets to this always-entertaining event. Read on and be sure to enter.

Get ready to sample IPAs, barrel-aged brews, sour ales and much more from over 50 of San Diego’s most acclaimed breweries, all while enjoying live musical performances by Ashley Hollander and a set by San Diego’s own P.O.D. at this year's Rhythm & Brews.

"We look forward to Rhythm & Brews every year," says San Diego Brewers Guild president Jill Davidson. "It is the epitome of San Diego beer culture and a fantastic opportunity to bring more people into our craft beer community and celebrate the county’s accomplishments."

At Rhythm & Brews, beer enthusiasts will enjoy an afternoon of unlimited tastings of over 100 craft brews from more than 50 of San Diego’s award-winning breweries in a picturesque outdoor setting. To complement the local brews, the festival will feature continuous live performances and tasty fare will be available for purchase from local food trucks including Cousins Main Lobster, Criscito Pizza and Currywurst Frankfurt.

Tickets to Rhythm & Brews are available online at $45 for GA and $50 for VIP. Both passes include unlimited beer samples and a commemorative tasting cup, and VIP tickets include early entry at 12pm. Proceeds from the event benefit the San Diego Brewers Guild, the nonprofit that works to support the county’s innovative brewing community as well as the Brazillian Institute for Arts and Culture, an organization whose mission is to facilitate the education of Brazilian arts and culture to the community.
