Rhythm & Brews

The San Diego Brewers Guild recently hosted the 7th Annual Rhythm & Brews Music and Craft Beer Festival in historic downtown Vista. The afternoon was filled with live music from local bands L.A. Edwards and Trouble in the Wind, delicious eats from local eateries, and hundreds of beers to choose from for the 2,000 attendees.

Guests were able to sample more than 170 beers from more than 70 award-winning breweries from San Diego and beyond, including North County favorites like Burgeon Beer Company, Wavelength Brewing, The Lost Abbey, and Midnight Jack Brewing, among others. The event also offered a tented VIP beer garden for the truest of beer enthusiasts.
