3rd Annual Sabroso Craft Beer and Taco Festival

I am so excited that one of my favorite events of the year is nearly upon us!  Since 2014, the masterminds behind OC Brew Ha Ha have put together an epic event which combines amazing beer, tacos, live music, and luchadores!  You can read about my experiences at Sabroso in 2014 and 2015.

This year's third annual Sabroso Craft Beer & Taco Festival will once again be held at the picturesque Lake View Park near Irvine Lake.  I love this venue, because it is close enough to the major freeways in the area, yet far enough out of the way to make it feel as if you are not near a major metro area, like Orange County.

The event will be held on Saturday, April 30th from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m..  There will be a wide variety of unlimited tastings of over 100 craft beers as well as the opportunity to purchase $3 gourmet tacos from some of the best chefs and restaurants in Orange County.  The chefs and restaurants will all be competing for the coveted People's Choice awards, so these tacos will not be your average ones.

Just a few of the breweries scheduled to pour delicious beer at this year's Sabroso include:

Taco lovers will be excited to sample $3 tacos from:

Chef Manny Velasco of Sol-Agave
Chef Octavio Montoya of Stadium Brew Co.
Chef Cody Storts of Grits
Along with 2015 Sabroso Grand Champion Taco Master Hop Phan of Dos Chinos Food Truck

Along with beer and tacos, Sabroso also offers great entertainment such as live music and Lucha Libre wrestling.  The wrestling is always one of my favorite parts of the events for me!

A portion of the proceeds from Sabroso will benefit the Big Brothers and Sisters of Orange County and Inland Empire.  As one of the top mentoring organizations in the country, they have changed the lives of thousands of local children each year since 1958.  For more information, visit:

New for this year's event is that Sabroso is offering free shuttle service from the event to the Tustin Market Place from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m..  This service is being offered to help improve the experience for guests who take alternative transportation to the event.  While it isn't a problem to take alternative transportation modes TO the event, afterwards it is very difficult for drivers to pick up guests.  The shuttles will take guests who did not drive to Sabroso to an area where it will be much easier to get a ride from a Lyft, Uber, taxi, etc..

The shuttle is a free service.  Donations are welcome for the service, 100% of the donations will go to Sabroso's charity partner, the Big Brothers and Sisters of Orange County and Inland Empire.

Tickets for Sabroso are $55 online in advance.  If the event does not sell out prior, tickets will be available at the door the day of the event for $55.  Designated Driver tickets will be available for $20 at the door only and must be accompanied by a paid ticket holder.  No one will be admitted who is under 21 years of age.
