The MHB Purpose: Bringing People Together Over Great Beer Around Great Causes

Buy your tickets HERE, then grab your shades, blanket, and lawn chairs, scoop up the kids and your friendly pooch, and head beachside to Pier Plaza along Seacoast, just south of the Imperial Beach Fishing Pier for this super-fun, summertime event. An awesome way to enjoy summer with your friends and family!

This year, enjoy an IBAC-run no-entry-fee cornhole tournament for prizes; food from FOUR food vendors plus one popcorn vendor including City Tacos, Doggos Gus, Full Belly BBQ, Bread and Cheese, and Party Pop. In addition, we will have plenty of beverages (Mike Hess Brewing beers, house-made root beer and more), and the main event: a concert featuring the Fallbrook Kid, guitar sensations Anthony Cullins, headliner The Sully Band, local award-winners Daring Greatly and North County’s country killers wrapping up the evening,  PHT & The Honky Tonk Nights!

All this and more, including interactive booths from Boca Rio Ink (t-shirts on demand), Sky's Delights, Party Pop, San Diego Legion Rugby, URT URT Clothing, Farm Fresh to You, Wyndham Vacation Rentals and Cork Hats.
