Rhythm and Brews Festival Fun for West Chester

Craft Beer and Music Event to Benefit Boys and Girls Club 

Across the country Boys and Girls Clubs provide a safe place for kids. A haven for structure, caring adults and even food when some children go hungry. In Butler County, the club is so busy it has kids waiting to join.

This month, a special event will be raising funds to help the club continue its good work. Union Center Square will be the home for the first annual Rhythm and Brews Festival.  The day long event on Saturday, August 29th will kick off at 1pm and run through to 11. The event will feature some of our area’s finest craft brews and taste bud tempting food trucks. 

Nashville recording artist Noah Smith will kick things into high gear when he takes the stage at 2pm. The CCM graduate now splits his time between Nashville and Cincinnati and just released an amazing live album in July. (Go grab your copy HERE!) He is currently preparing to record his second album after his single, “Let the Clutch Out” hit the Top 40 in its debut on syndicated radio.  

Three Day Rule will entertain the crowds in the late afternoon and early evening with some of your favorites from the 80’s and 90’s. 

Fourth Day Echo will have everyone on there feet into the evening with lively covers from your favorite bands. They have the musical styles to make everyone happy. 

This “no entrance fee” event runs to 11 but will have last call at 10:00 pm. The event features more than 20 Craft Beers to sample, drink and enjoy, and a few unique ciders, there is sure to be something for the beer lover in you! (And for those wishing to stick to the more main stream brews, we will have your favorites as well.) Beer sizes range from just a tasting to the inaugural take home souvenir mugs! You can keep your hunger at bay by sampling from over 15 restaurants and food trucks on site. 

The event will help raise funds for the operating budget for the new West Chester/Liberty Boys and Girls Club on Smith Road.  The Club’s focus is providing literacy support, leadership skill development, and to provide daily nutrition serving both breakfast and lunch. The 5,000 square foot building currently serves 85 children, but has a waiting list of up to 150 children. That means for every one child that is served that are 17 more needing support.

Parking for the event will be available on the street and at Lakota West High School.  For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/rhythmandbrews.org?fref=ts or http://rhythmandbrews.org/. There are still a few slots available for food vendors and sponsors.
