Recap: 6th Annual OC Brew Ha Ha Craft Beer Festival

I got the opportunity to cover the 6h Annual OC Brew Ha Ha this year at Oak Canyon Ranch.

Upon check-in we were given a commemorative glass and map. Then we were off to the adult’s playground.There were unlimited tastings of over 90 craft beers, food trucks, games, and live entertainment. This event is a beer connoisseur dream come true.

I honestly lost count how many different IPAs I had that day. Some of my favorites were bottle logicbootlegger’s breweryelysian brewery, and Valiant Brewing Company.

Food at the festival were plentiful though it was an extra cost. Hopefully they can work some sort deal to make this an all inclusive event sometime in the future.

I was able to capture some pictures! Take a look!
