It’s hot out. Like sit in your undies in front of the fan on the floor hot. When it’s miserable outside what better to do than go and drink a bunch of beer and forget about how sweaty and sticky you are? Ok – so you might just get sweatier and stickier but at least you had fun.

July 15-16th : OC Brew Hee Haw!! At the OC Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, they have the OC Brew Hee Haw (yee-haw!) again and I am looking forward to it. Last year there was a spontaneous dance party, complete with dance battles, it was such a great time! There are three sessions: 12-4pm & 6-10pm on Saturday and 12-4pm on Sunday. It’s really cool that you can do 4 hours of unlimited beer tasting then enjoy the rest of the day at the fair with the price of admission. Check out one of my previous reviews of the event here !


August 5-6th: High & Mighty Fest! This is the first annual High & Mighty fest and is set to take place at the Village Green Park in downtown Garden Grove. There are major music acts like Sublime with Rome and Dirty Heads and Jurassic 5 set to attend, with different music acts each day. Like other events that also has large music elements, it’s unlimited beer until 4pm, and music until much later with paid beer sales. I think it’s a neat way to mesh beer events with music events, and certainly helps people discover new craft beers they might have never tried before. It sounds like so much fun!


Sept 23rd: 8th Annual OC Brew Ha Ha!! My favorite OC Beer event every year! I love this event. Despite the inevitable suffocating heat that descends upon Silverado Canyon every year, this is the event I look forward to all year. It’s great to see all the familiar faces and enjoy a beautiful day amongst friends, drinking delicious beer of course.
