Brew Ho Ho! Presents performance by iconic band Reel Big Fish
Craft beer lovers unite to indulge in over 80 limited releases, seasonal and winter ales with unlimited 2 oz. tastings from 12-4 p.m.
Festival to Benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County[Anaheim, CA.] – The fourth annual Brew Ho Ho! Holiday Ale Festival will present an unprecedented selection of seasonal craft beers at The Anaheim Phoenix Club on Saturday, December 5. The event comes courtesy of the Brew Ha Ha Productions team, who continue to develop the most acclaimed beer festivals in Orange County. The Brew Ho Ho! Holiday Ale Festival has sold-out the last three years. This year’s record-breaking sell-out of their “Early-Bird” discount tickets in 42 minutes almost guarantees this year will be a sell-out as well. Brew Ho Ho! 2015 will also present a performance by the popular band REEL BIG FISH live as well as amazing food from top local restaurants and food trucks.
The Brew Ho Ho! is the largest Holiday Craft Beer Festival and Expo in Southern California. This year will feature a line-up of over 80 fine craft beers from some of the finest breweries in Southern California and beyond. Over half of the great selection will include special seasonal, Holiday and winter ales. In addition to the four hours of unlimited 2 oz. tastings from 12-4 p.m., the event will also include an unprecedented collection of craft beer and brewery merchandise as a part of their Craft Beer Expo that will take place from 12-5 p.m.
Barley Forge in Costa Mesa, Bottle Logic in Anaheim and Good Beer Co. in Santa Ana are brewing this year’s anticipated Brew Ho Ho collaboration called Glögg Glögg Glögg. Each of the three breweries is brewing their own renditions of the dark holiday ale inspired by the Scandinavian mulled wine drink of the same name. This ale was brewed with roasted chestnuts, apricots, black currants, and holiday spices and fermented with Belgian ale yeast.
Breweries including Ballast Point, Bootleggers Brewing Company, Clown Shoes, Cascade, Great Divide, Portland Cider Company and Tap It are only a handful of the artisans who will be sampling their satisfying brews. Pair your craft beer with the perfect bite and enjoy food from The Burnt Truck, Brewcakes, The Cut, Devilicious, Dogzilla, Porko Rico BBQ, Slater’s 50/50 and The Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen.
The craft beer loving, iconic sensation REEL BIG FISH will be performing special renditions of classic holiday songs and many of their crowd pleasing favorites like “Beer.” “We had RBF at our 2013 Brew Ha Ha event and to say, ‘this band is back by popular demand, is an understatement!” said co-producer Cameron Collins.
The holiday ale fest will offer host the anticipated annual Brewery Merchandise Expo offering a one-stop shopping experience. Photos with Santa Claus add to the jovial atmosphere, which is further enhanced by the Brew Ha Ha’s illustrious interactive games.
After their successful experience working together on the Brew Hee Haw at the OC Fair, The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County is the charitable partner for this year’s Brew Ho Ho. A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the organization that makes life-changing differences in hundreds of OC’s children in need.
