San Diego Beer and Music Festival
The San Diego Beer and Music Festival rocks out at the Waterfront Park, where celebrators enjoy unlimited samples of more 50 beers from craft brewers and enchanted mountain streams. Headlining the music half of the festival is Southern California-based band Breach The Summit straight off their performance at the Firefly Music Festival, and The Active Set, a synth-heavy band. Meanwhile, a pavilion packed with food trucks keeps partiers fueled to go late into the night. But for all its revelry, the event has a conscience—proceeds go to the San Diego Music Foundation.
