The Bruery will offer tastes of their holiday brew ‘10 Lords a Leaping’, Bottle Logic Brewing will offer pours of ‘Darkstar November,’ a bourbon barrel aged stout, and Offshoot Brewing will serve up samples of their West Coast IPA, ‘Hopluck.’ Hangar 24 will have sips of their anticipated ‘Sierra Ground Coffee Milk Stout’, a delicious wintertime Nitrogen combo infused with premium ground coffee, sweet flavors of orange peel, cinnamon and creamy organic milk.
In true Brew Ho Ho! tradition, festivities will include singing and dancing to iconic live music. The ultimate British ska, new wave-pop band, The English Beat, will perform everyone’s favorite songs including their 1980s top US and UK charts hit “Mirror in the Bathroom.” “The Brew Ho Ho! has become an Orange County classic that we really do look forward to all year long,” said Cameron Collins, Brew Ha Ha Productions. “It’s such a special event, and the fact that we have the English Beat performing this year is a total dream come true! Our Brew Ha Ha Productions’ events have always had roots in ska with past performances from bands like Reel Big Fish and The Aggrolites… it’s like we’ve been preparing for this over the past decade!” Music won’t be the only component raising the energy of the festival, activities like supreme Jenga, beanbag toss, a visit with Santa Clause, over-the-top holiday sweaters and costumes, and Brew Ho Ho’s famous festive activities will all add to the flair of the event. In addition to fine beer and food, the popular cigar lounge will return with more than 50 different selections of the best boutique cigars. Guests will have a chance to pair their craft beer with the perfect bite and enjoy food from SoCal’s top chefs and food vendors including MeatUp BBQ, Chef TLC Truck, Viking Truck, and Piaggio on Wheels.
