Rhythm & Brews Festival FAQ

How does this work?
The 2023 Rhythm & Brews festival takes place in Bellevue on August 19 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Individual breweries will be represented inside local shops along Lincoln Avenue and bands will be performing at various locations. A map with the list of tasting locations will be provided to guide your stroll along Lincoln Avenue. Each ticketed attendee gets a pour from each brewery.

Registration will be at The Center Of Bellevue (2 N. Sprague Ave.) – please enter through the side door on Sprague Avenue. Plan to present your pre-purchased tickets so they can be scanned, either from your phone or from a printout. If tickets do not sell out prior to Saturday, additional tickets will be sold at registration for $50 each until we reach capacity. We cannot guarantee that tickets will be available and those remaining on Saturday will be sold first come, first serve.

What does the ticket fee cover?
The ticket fee entitles guests to sample beers at all the stops on the crawl, a souvenir tasting glass, as well as the entertainment provided by bands playing at various locations. The event is a fundraiser for Bona Fide Bellevue, a 501c3 non-profit Community Development Corporation working to promote living and working in Bellevue, PA.

Are there physical tickets for the event?
When buying tickets in advance online, you will receive an email with printable tickets after your ticket purchase. At registration, show the unique QR code on your ticket directly from your phone, or print out the ticket to bring with you. If you’re purchasing tickets for a group, please make sure each individual has their unique ticket for entry. All ticket holders will be asked to show ID and sign a waiver to receive a tasting glass and wristband. Please hang on to these items! You’ll need them at each stop.

Is this kid-friendly?
Yes! Our event is kid and family-friendly, and those that aren’t drinking don’t need to purchase a ticket. Without a ticket they will not receive a wristband, glass or program. No alcohol will be served to attendees without these items. In addition to beer tastings and live music, games will be provided for the public along the closed section of Lincoln Avenue. Please be courteous and share the games with others.

Where is parking available?
Public parking is available throughout the borough. However, Lincoln Avenue will be closed from Florence Ave. to Balph Ave., so we highly encourage you to carpool or use a ride service such as Uber or Lyft. Bellevue is also accessible via three Port Authority bus routes as well: the 13 BELLEVUE, 14 OHIO VALLEY, and 16 BRIGHTON.

Will there be food available?
Yes. Local restaurants will be selling food, both inside and outside. We encourage you to try as many as possible and experience the variety that Bellevue has to offer.

Will the event still happen in inclement weather?
This event will be held “rain or shine.”
