Rivertowne Brewing to Host Rhythm and Brews Beer Festival Featuring Rusted Root
August 29, 2015 – Craft beer and local bands to hit center stage to celebrate the end of summer and give back to the community
On Saturday, August 29th, Rivertowne Brewing will host a craft beer festival featuring local bands and guest breweries at the Tall Trees Amphitheater in Monroeville. Food and retail vendors will be selling wares on site. Gates open at 2:00pm. Music starts at 4:00pm. Other entertainment will take place throughout the day. The entire event will wrap up around 9:00pm. Donations will be made to local charities. Advanced ticket purchase is encouraged.
Rivertowne Brewing invites the public to join them for a celebration in the park complete with great beers, great food, great music, and great friends. Christian Fyke, CEO of Rivertowne Brewing Company, envisioned an event where beer enthusiasts can sample different craft brews while enjoying local bands in the great outdoors. Rivertowne’s motto is to provide a venue where friends can meet. From these ideas, Rhythm and Brews was born.
General admission is $50 and includes a souvenir tumbler, unlimited Rivertowne samples, and two full-sized Rivertowne pours in the Beer Garden. The Beer Garden offers a casual setting to enjoy the company of existing and new friends while sampling the complimentary pours of Rivertowne. ‘Taste of Summer’ beers included Hala Kahiki and Jah Mon, while ‘Fall Fest’ beers such as Oktoberfest, Headless Wylie, and Sassamanash will be introduced. Additionally, two different VIP craft breweries will be showcased in the Beer Garden every hour.
VIP admission is $80 and includes general admission privileges, as well as VIP tent access between 2:00pm and 7:00pm, unlimited samples from VIP craft brewers, and light refreshments. VIP craft brewers include: All Saints Brewing Company, Fat Head’s Brewery, Four Seasons Brewing Company, Helltown Brewing, Spoonwood Brewing Company, and, of course, Rivertowne Brewing.
Music begins at 4:00pm. The Jenkins Brothers, Nacho Blues, and Fungus Pittsburgh will contribute their unique musical performances until 7:00pm. At that time, Rusted Root will take the stage with their fusion of acoustic, rock, world and other styles of music, with a strong percussion section that draws from African, Latin American, and Native American influences.
Rivertowne Brewing is entrenched in the local community and has set a goal to donate a $10,000 contribution to be shared amongst the Turtle Creek Rail Trail, the Sampson Family YMCA, Monroeville Rotary Club, Monroeville Community Pools, and Monroeville Police Benevolent Fund.
