On the seventh day of Christmas, I hope your true love gives to you a ticket to the OC Brew Ho Ho. Brought to you by the people that bring you the OC Brew Ha Ha Craft Beer Festival, OC Brew Ho Ho celebrates its second year at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim on December 7.
Your $55 festival pass gets you unlimited 3 oz. tastings of more than 50 brews, a commemorative festival glass, access to all the Brew Ho Ho has to offer, and also a partridge in a pear tree. You’ll enjoy local brews from the likes of Bootleggers Brewery and Stone Brewing Company as well as beer from not-so-local breweries like Hawaii’s Maui Brewing Company and Chicago’s Goose Island Beer Company.
Adding to the festivities is an appearance by beer-drinking Santa, a DJ set by the legendary Richard Blade and games like supreme Jenga and beanbag tosses. Food will be served up by Slater’s 50/50, Brewcakes Dessert Gastropub and several food trucks. You can also get a headstart on your holiday shopping at the Brewery Merchandise Expo featuring creative gifts for the beer lovers on your list.
And because you were especially good this year, the OC Brew Ho Ho Holiday Ale collaboration beer, The Ghost of Jacob Barley, will also be available for your drinking pleasure. This gift to you from Noble Ale Works, Beachwood Brewing and the Brew Ha Ha team is 9% ABV and brewed with Portola Coffee Lab coffee, English malt base, brown sugar, caramel malts, and cinnamon.
And in the true Christmas spirit, proceeds will benefit Pediatric Cancer Research. Tickets are expected to sell out. And we were kidding about the partridge.
