Guests bring their inner beer connoisseur, inner party animal, and outer valid photo ID to the Beer Loves Music San Diego festival at Bassmnt on Saturday, August 31. More than 40 beer samples keep pinkies raised as guests boogie to live music from rock, soul, and dance acts including Belmont Lights, Midnight Frenzy, Hot Sands, and Bass Punks.
Rock N' Brew
Since 2011, a group of UNLV beverage management majors have channeled their bartending savvy into Rock N' Brew, a series of music and beer events that double as charity events. Guests can quaff unlimited samples of golden ales, deep brown stouts, and crisp lagers from breweries such as Guinness, Redhook, and Gordon Biersch. Meanwhile, local musicians rock the event’s exclusive venues, which have ranged from the Chateau Nightclub to the Hard Rock Hotel, known for its exclusive VIP area that only lets in classic guitars.
Hollywood Beer and Music Festival
Hollywood Beer and Music Festival's name perfectly sums up the reasons to attend: live tunes and unlimited samples of craft beer. The mid-September bash, held at the reserve lot at Hollywood and Vine, draws representatives from more than 25 regional breweries to hand out cold pours of more than 50 brews. Meanwhile, live bands and DJs from Power 106's Flava Unit broadcast from a mobile DJ truck hosted by Coors Light. Following the daytime event, DJ ParaDice hosts a cocktail after party at Bardot, a rooftop nightclub above Avalon with a booming sound system capable of sending basslines to NASA space stations.
