Rhythm & Brews Festival

Annual MHK homebrewing event


Rhythm & Brews Manhattan turns The Little Apple into suds-central for one weekend each August. 

Bands, brews & RBMHK


Manhattan has hosted Rhythm & Brews Manhattan for three years with a day full of events centered in City Park.

Hail the Ale/Sip of Kansas sampling


The afternoon Sip of Kansas sampling event toasts Hail the Ale homebrew creators, with winners from different categories announced to cap the day's events. You can also have tastes of Midwest microbrewery/winery samples from the region ($25 entry). This event tasting takes place in the air-conditioned comfort of GTM Wefald Pavilion in City Park.

Evening music festival


The polish of Rhythm & Brews Manhattan comes with stellar Saturday night music acts. 2016 featured a triumvirate of eclectic tunes at City Park, headlined by Grizfolk (the Struggle, Troublemaker, Bob Marley), SHEL (Just Crazy Enough). and The Baker Trio.

Brew2Shoe races


10K and 5K runs sponsored by Manhattan Running Company and Tallgrass Brewery get the show started early, with a mega-celebration for runners and supporters after crossing the finish line on Poyntz Avenue near AJ's Pizzeria and refreshing cool-down at Tallgrass Taphouse.

City Park is the host venue to the concerts and Hail to Ale. Make plans for Aug. 5, 2017.
