7th Annual OC Brew Ha Ha Craft Beer Festival Returns to Oak Canyon September 24

I'm so excited that one of my favorite beer events of the year is just around the corner! I've
attended the OC Brew Ha Ha for the past there years and had a rad time each year! If you're curious what the OC Brew Ha Ha is all about, check out some of my previous recaps here and here. Information about this year's event is detailed below.

Cheers to rad beers and friends!
Silverado, CA--Brew Ha Ha Productions and the OC Fair produced another stand out
collaboration at this year's 3rd Annual Brew Hee Haw Craft Beer Round up, with record-breaking attendance and over 100 stand out craft beers served.  Following the successful Brew Hee Haw, the 7th annual Brew Ha Ha Craft Beer Festival will return to the beautiful Oak Canyon Private Ranch on Saturday, September 24th.  This year's festival will present over 90 craft breweries sampling more than 250 craft and import beers as the festival continues to reign as "Orange County's Favorite Beer Festival."

The 3rd annual Brew Hee Haw returned to opening weekend of the OC Fair with a new, larger location and an additional tasting session, attracting record-breaking attendees while raising over $12,000 for local charities like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County and Inland Empire.  In addition to over 80 different taps pooled from some of the best Southern California breweries and beyond, VIP attendees sampled seasonal and limited release beers including Greyhound Grapefruit IPA from Bottle Logic and Dusk Till Dawn Imperial Coffee Porter from Pizza Port San Clemente, Breaking Bud IPA from Knee Deep, Nom Nom Mango Hefeweizen from Barley Forge, and more!
