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.
