The High & Mighty Festival
Village Green Park
12732 Main St.
Garden Grove, CA
While both worlds are fundamentally connected, it took reggae-punk pioneers Sublime to finally figure out how best to marry a music festival with a craft beer festival. The inaugural High and Mighty Festival is a two-day party that features two-dozen of the region’s best craft beer breweries. Ticket holders will not only enjoy headlining sets from Sublime with Rome and The Dirty Heads, they will also get their fill of unlimited beer samples from all of the participating breweries. With most breweries developing special recipes specific for events like this, it’s very likely that there will be some particularly rare stuff flowing. If the concert wasn’t enough to get you moving, the cold stuff should be the convincing cherry on top.
