Frequently Asked Questions

2020 Rhythm & Brews has been cancelled. If you purchased tickets, your purchase will be fully refunded and will be issued automatically. We anticipate all refunds will be issued within 30 days.


You can continue to support and stay connected to our local craft breweries. Many are offering curbside pickup, online ordering, beer to go and deliveries. In the not-so-distant future, you’ll be back in their breweries and taprooms, so consider buying a gift card and proudly sporting their merch. Follow us on social to get updates on our local craft breweries: @sdbrewers.
