Rhythm and Brews

A record-breaking 2,500 people gathered in historic downtown Vista Village at the sixth annual Rhythm and Brews music and craft beer festival, presented by the San Diego Brewers Guild (SDBG). Attendees enjoyed an afternoon of unlimited tastings of 141 craft beers poured by 64 local and out-of-state breweries. Live music was performed by P.O.D., Ashley Hollander, and The Tighten Ups. Rhythm and Brews is one of two signature events produced by SDBG annually. The other event, San Diego Beer Week, is held in the fall. Proceeds from the event benefitted SDBG and the Brazilian Institute for Arts and Culture. Discover more at
