The 5th Annual OC Brew Hee Haw Craft Beer Roundup is July 14th and 15th during opening weekend of the world-famous OC Fair & Event Center. With four hours of unlimited tastings, guests will have the opportunity to sip a variety of beer styles from breweries across the west coast and southwest, including Bay Area-based Faction Brewing and New Glory Brewing from Sacramento, as well as local favorite breweries such as Artifex Brewing Company, Bottle Logic Brewing, Chapman Crafted Beer, Bootleggers Brewery, Barley Forge Brewing Co., and Three Weavers Brewing Company.
Located next to the scenic and spacious Pacific Amphitheatre, OC Brew Hee Haw will host three separate tasting sessions with two sessions on Saturday, July 14 and one session on Sunday, July 15. In addition to sampling beer in their commemorative tasting glass, guests can partake in exciting games, dancing, and mingling with craft beer lovers and expert tasters alike. Back by popular demand, attendees can continue pouring on the fun singing along to catchy tunes spun by DJ Eric Cahill from The Gig.
Tickets also include free OC Fair admission so attendees can come for the beer and stay for the Fair! Guests can “Free Their Inner Farmer” with the piglet races, carnival games, unique fried foods, and spinning around on their favorite rides, all before, during, or after their tasting session at OC Brew Hee Haw. From sipping the region’s top craft beer to enjoying the OC Fair, attendees can experience additional OC Fair opening weekend activities like the exhilarating MMA Summerfist 11, Speedway Fair Derby at the Action Sport Arena, and live concerts in the Pacific Amphitheatre. The OC Fair is open Wednesday through Sunday, July 13-August 12, 2018. Tickets are available for purchase at ocfair.com or from the on-site Box Office (limited hours.)
