Join us on August 28th as we celebrate 11 years of Great Beer, No Exceptions while we raise money and awareness for two awesome organizations: the Navy SEAL Foundation and Next Step Service Dogs.
Grab your blanket and lawn chairs and head beachside to Pier Plaza along Seacoast, just south of the Imperial Beach Fishing Pier for this special family and dog-friendly event. An awesome way to close out summer with your friends, enjoy a no-entry-fee cornhole tournament for prizes, food from City Tacos and more, plenty of beverages (including, of course, Mike Hess beers), and the main event: a concert featuring national acts The Sully Band and (all the way from Boulder, CO), The Samples, plus opening band, The Fallbrook Kid, Anthony Cullins!
Have fun while doing good: Unlike so many other festivals, MHB donates the net proceeds to our two charity beneficiary partners. Representatives from each organization will be on hand to talk to guests about their mission and why your support means so much to them and the people they serve.
Food from City Tacos and Doggos Gus. Wine from Rivino Winery. Interactive booths from Boca Rio Ink (t-shirts on demand), Vitamin Sea Wellness, Bibbey Shell Shop and Little Dandelions.
