What Is Your Brand All About?
Our brand, RHYTHM Brewing Co. is fun, energetic, and filled with goodness! It evokes conversation and good times from beer drinkers worldwide with our unique unfiltered recipe.
Music, Dance, and Beer have always played a significant role in my life. Both of my Grandmothers were lager drinkers, and on special occasions, they would sip, dance, and converse about “Finding your Rhythm in Life”. Honoring my grandmothers was my motivation to start the Rhythm Brewing Co brand. I am on a personal quest to offer better beverage options to suit a wider array of palates plus become the 1st Black Nationally distributed beer brand.
