As any one knows, beer and ale drinkers are always looking for a holiday to hoist a glass. So, coming up on Saturday, December 13 at the Anaheim Phoenix Club will be the 3rd annual Brew Ho Ho. Over 60 fine beers will be on tap at this event, celebrating the season and the season’s fine beers. Ballast Point, Bootleggers Brewing Company, and Cascade are just a few of the breweries that will be bringing their best beers, ales, porters and stouts to the Anaheim Phoenix Club.

For a special collaborative brew, this year will unite the talents of Valiant Brewing in Orange with Black Market Brewing of Temecula. The new 13% ABV beer will be unveiled in the coming weeks and combines vanilla bean, cherries, and smoked wood to create a complex and robust Russian Imperial Stout that will be available in bottles and at craft beer centric drinking establishments in Southern California.

Firestone Walker, with their popular 805 brew will come down from Santa Barbara County, while Left Coast Brewing and Green Flash will bring some of their most popular brews to the event.

About Ed Simon

I'm a native of Los Angeles who loves food and food cultures. Whether I'm looking for the best ceviche in Colombia, the best poke in Hawaii, the best tequila in Jalisco or the best Taiwanese Beef Roll in Los Angeles, it's all good food! I also love a good drink. I've had Mai Tais in Hawaii, Bourbon in Kentucky, tequila in Mexico and rum in Jamaica. My wine escapades have taken me to Napa, Sonoma, the Willamette Valley and the Santa Ynez Valley. And I've had beer all over the world!
