When the local city or state fair comes to town, you can bet that thousands of people will flock to it during the opening weekend. Despite the excess heat and lack of shade, the 3rd Annual OC Brew Hee Haw craft beer festival returned to the Orange County Fair & Event Center this past weekend. This weekend-long beer tasting event took place on the opening weekend of the 2016 OC Fair this past weekend, and covered a large span of the weekend with four different beer tasting sessions that each lasted four hours. All attendees to the OC Brew Hee Haw received UNLIMITED beer tasters, as well as admission to the fairgrounds for that day. The actual Brew Hee Haw area did not contain much else to do besides get beer, as the small space only allowed for just drinking plus a small stage to allow a DJ to set up. Attendees could still wander about the fair, but could not bring beer outside of the event area.

Now in its third year, the OC Brew Hee Haw has once again come under some changes upon improving it from the previous years. The number of sessions increased back up to four like the first year, but up one from last year. Much like last year, admission to the beer tasting allowed for unlimited beer samples while supplies lasted. New this year, OC Brew Hee Haw took place in a brand new area to allow for more space compared to the previous years’ cramped location. The event got its own tents set up at the northwest entrance to the fair, and allowed more than enough space to fit all of the breweries and vendors. On the other hand, also new this year, visitors faced enhanced screening at the entrance, complete with more searches and a metal detector. This held up hundreds of people trying to get in, and it took me at least 20 minutes to finally enter the fair after getting in line to get screened. The fair administration also mucked up parking for the vendors, as many of the vendors and volunteers got redirected to a different parking lot than previously instructed. As a result, many of the vendors and volunteers arrived way after the session had started. The attendees did not seem to mind this – if anything, it made people get closer and make new friends. I mean, just look at all these people – they look like they had a great time!

If you missed out on the Brew Hee Haw, fret not. The one that started them all, OC Brew Ha Ha, returns for its sixth installment on Saturday, September 24th, back at Oak Canyon Park in Irvine. Tickets have already gone on sale for $45 general admission or $60 for entry an hour earlier. All visitors gain access to UNLIMITED beer tastings for the duration of the event from over 90 breweries serving over 200 different beers. Expect to find plenty of food trucks, other food vendors, free soft drinks, merchandise booths, beer industry speakers, games, and more, which includes live music. To stay updated on news such as this and more from OC Brew Ha Ha, like the Facebook page and follow them on Twitter so you know what goes on in the realm of Orange County’s greatest beer festivals.

Breaking new grounds by combining two unlikely worlds, the brazen crew behind the OC Brew Ha Ha will boldly step into the Orange County Fairgrounds to host the 3rd Annual OC Brew Hee Haw, a craft beer festival held within a local fair. This weekend-long beer tasting event takes place on the opening weekend of the 2016 OC Fair this weekend, and covers a large span of the weekend with four different beer tasting sessions that each last four hours. All attendees to the OC Brew Hee Haw receive UNLIMITED beer tasters, as well as admission to the fairgrounds for that day.

Historically, the OC Brew Ha Ha Productions crew has put on some of the most memorable beer festivals in Southern California. With this new festival that pairs them up with another large production group in the form of the OC Fair, expect some speed bumps to surface. Keep these tips in mind to make your visit a more pleasant experience:

  • Parking: Parking directly at the OC Fair costs $10 per vehicle, and subjects everyone to the madness of one-lane traffic in the lot. On weekends, a free parking lot with shuttle service exists not too far from the fair, so consider parking there.
  • Navigation: None of the fair staff knows anything about the Brew Hee Haw. Any attempt to ask about the event’s location would lead attendees in circles because the fair staff know how to do only their job and nothing else. Prepare to do a bit of exploring the fairgrounds to locate the Brew Hee Haw.
  • Restricted space: All prior Brew Ha Ha events had tons of space to move about in. This event restricts all guests to a lesser space. While this means guaranteed shade from the harsh sun, beer cannot leave the immediate premises.
  • Limited restrooms: Any beer fest must have ample access to restrooms. Brew Hee Haw guests can only use the fair’s restrooms, which have a consistently long line all day.
  • Food restrictions: Attendees cannot bring beer outside of the Brew Hee Haw area. This means that anyone wanting food has to finish their current cup of beer before leaving to go get food and bring it back.

If you cannot make it to Brew Hee Haw, fret not. The one that started them all, OC Brew Ha Ha, returns for its seventh installment on Saturday, September 24th, back at Oak Canyon Park in Irvine. Tickets have already gone on sale for $45 general admission or $60 for entry an hour earlier. All visitors gain access to UNLIMITED beer tastings for the duration of the event from over 90 breweries serving over 200 different beers & ciders. Expect to find plenty of food trucks, other food vendors, free soft drinks, merchandise booths, beer industry speakers, games, and more, which includes live music. To stay updated on news such as this and more from OC Brew Ha Ha, like the Facebook page and follow them on Twitter so you know what goes on in the realm of Orange County’s greatest beer festivals.

A little bit of inclement weather will not bog down the fun people will have at the local city or state fair. Despite some inauspicious weather, the 2nd Annual OC Brew Hee Haw craft beer festival returned to the Orange County Fair & Event Center this past weekend. This weekend-long beer tasting event took place on the opening weekend of the 2015 OC Fair this past weekend, and covered a large span of the weekend with three different beer tasting sessions that each lasted four hours. All attendees to the OC Brew Hee Haw received UNLIMITED beer tasters, as well as admission to the fairgrounds for that day. The actual Brew Hee Haw area did not contain much else to do besides get beer, as the small space only allowed for just drinking. A small stage allowed a DJ to set up, as well as host speakers to talk about beer and beer pairings. Attendees could still wander about the fair, but could not bring beer outside of the event area.

The OC Brew Ha Ha Productions crew has taken some of the cues from last year’s festival, and vastly improved it. Changes from last year include reducing the sessions from four to three, allowing unlimited beer tasters, and providing more space in the event area by eliminating unnecessary objects. Many of last year’s problems also got resolved by the start of the festival, either by Brew Ha Ha or by the OC Fair. Attendees parking at the free off-site parking structure took a shuttle that dropped them off right at the gate leading to the Brew Hee Haw. For attendees who entered through a different gate, signs all over the fair pointed out the directions to Brew Hee Haw. If anything, the only thing that rained on this parade involved the rain itself. Due to the rain, attendees did not go to the outdoor portion at the back of the event area, so everyone crammed inside, making for a tight event space. The attendees did not seem to mind this – if anything, it made people get closer and make new friends. I mean, just look at all these people – they look like they had a great time!

If you missed out on the Brew Hee Haw, fret not. The one that started them all, OC Brew Ha Ha, returns for its sixth installment on Saturday, September 12th, back at Oak Canyon Park in Irvine. Tickets have already gone on sale for $45 general admission or $60 for entry an hour earlier. All visitors gain access to UNLIMITED beer tastings for the duration of the event from over 80 breweries serving over 170 different beers. Expect to find plenty of food trucks, other food vendors, free soft drinks, merchandise booths, beer industry speakers, games, and more, which includes live music. To stay updated on news such as this and more from OC Brew Ha Ha, like the Facebook page and follow them on Twitter so you know what goes on in the realm of Orange County’s greatest beer festivals.

Breaking new grounds by combining two unlikely worlds, the brazen crew behind the OC Brew Ha Ha will boldly step into the Orange County Fairgrounds to host the 2nd Annual OC Brew Hee Haw, a craft beer festival held within a local fair. This weekend-long beer tasting event takes place on the opening weekend of the 2015 OC Fair this weekend, and covers a large span of the weekend with three different beer tasting sessions that each last four hours. All attendees to the OC Brew Hee Haw receive UNLIMITED beer tasters, as well as admission to the fairgrounds for that day. The actual Brew Hee Haw area does not contain much else to do besides get beer or play Jenga, as the small space only allows for just drinking. A small stage allowed a DJ to set up, as well as host speakers to talk about beer and beer pairings.

Historically, the OC Brew Ha Ha Productions crew has put on some of the most memorable beer festivals in Southern California. With this new festival that pairs them up with another large production group in the form of the OC Fair, expect some speed bumps to surface. Keep these tips in mind to make your visit a more pleasant experience:

  • Parking: Parking directly at the OC Fair cost $10 per vehicle, and subjects everyone to the madness of one-lane traffic in the lot. On weekends, a free parking lot with shuttle service exists not too far from the fair at Orange Coast College, so consider parking there. However, a swap meet occurs at that location on weekends, further limiting the amount of available parking.
  • Navigation: None of the fair staff knows anything about the Brew Hee Haw. Any attempt to ask about the event’s location would lead attendees in circles because the fair staff know how to do only their job and nothing else. Walk all the way to the back northeast corner of the fair to locate Brew Hee Haw.
  • Restricted space: All prior Brew Ha Ha events had tons of space to move about in. This event restricted all guests to a tent. While this means guaranteed shade from the harsh sun, beer cannot leave the immediate premises.
  • Limited restrooms: Any beer fest must have ample access to restrooms. Brew Hee Haw guests can only use the fair’s restrooms, which have a consistently long line all day.
  • Food restrictions: Attendees cannot bring beer outside of the Brew Hee Haw area. This means that anyone wanting food has to finish their current cup of beer before leaving to go get food and bring it back.

If you cannot make it to Brew Hee Haw, fret not. The one that started them all, OC Brew Ha Ha, returns for its sixth installment on Saturday, September 12th, back at Oak Canyon Park in Irvine. Tickets have already gone on sale for $45 general admission or $60 for entry an hour earlier. All visitors gain access to UNLIMITED beer tastings for the duration of the event from over 80 breweries serving over 170 different beers. Expect to find plenty of food trucks, other food vendors, free soft drinks, merchandise booths, beer industry speakers, games, and more, which includes live music.

Breaking new grounds by combining two unlikely worlds, the brazen crew behind the OC Brew Ha Ha boldly stepped into the Orange County Fairgrounds to host the first ever OC Brew Hee Haw, a craft beer festival held within a local fair. This weekend-long beer tasting event took place on the opening weekend of the 2014 OC Fair this past weekend, and covered a large span of the weekend with four different beer tasting sessions that each lasted four hours. All attendees to the OC Brew Hee Haw received 15 beer tasters, as well as admission to the fairgrounds for that day. A total of 32 breweries made their presence known, each serving two of their own brews with the exception of Stone Brewing, which served four. The actual Brew Hee Haw area did not contain much else to do besides get beer or play Jenga, as the small space only allowed for just drinking. A small stage allowed a DJ to set up, as well as host speakers to talk about beer and beer pairings.

During the festivities, an opportunity to interview a representative from Hangar 24 Brewery arose. I took a bit of time to speak with him, and hear more about the background of one of this festival’s larger breweries.


Transcript:
Hi, I am Bob, I represent Hangar 24 Craft Brewery & Distribution. We are located in Redlands, CA. What makes our brewery unique is the fact that we use an old airplane hangar. Our founder & head brewer Ben Cook used to brew in kind of an airplane hangar across the street from the Redlands Municipal Airport, and he decided to open up this brewery in 2008, and it has been a blast ever since. They have a Local Fields series, which uses local farmers to brew seven different brews throughout the year. They use locally grown, locally harvested produce. Our most popular beer is the Orange Wheat. We do the purée, whole oranges, peel & seeds, the whole thing, put it in wheat beer… fantastic beer. If you haven’t made a trip out to Redlands yet, I highly recommend it. Cheers!

Historically, the OC Brew Ha Ha Productions crew has put on some of the most memorable beer festivals in Southern California. With this new festival that pairs them up with another large production group in the form of the OC Fair, some inconsistencies surfaced. Overall, this event felt more lackluster than previous Brew Ha Ha events. Upon broadening the perspectives, one can identify that the OC Fair caused most, if not all, of the inconsistencies. From the parking to the navigation to the restrictions, attendees had less control over their enjoyment of this festival, largely due in part to the restrictive nature of entering a “theme park” of sorts. To summarize the issues of this weekend’s festivities:

  • Parking: Parking directly at the OC Fair cost $10 per vehicle, and subjected everyone to the madness of one-lane traffic in the lot. On weekends, a free parking lot with shuttle service exists not too far from the fair. However, on this past weekend, a swap meet occurred at that location, further limiting the amount of available parking. This forced many to either circle that parking lot for much longer than needed, or face the $10 parking charge at the direct lot.
  • Navigation: None of the fair staff knew anything about the Brew Hee Haw. Any attempt to ask about the event’s location would lead attendees in circles because the fair staff knew how to do only their job and nothing else. It took me half an hour from entering the fair to locating the Brew Hee Haw, all the way in the back northeast corner of the fair.
  • Restricted space: All prior Brew Ha Ha events had tons of space to move about in. This event restricted all guests to a tent. Sure the attendees could come and go from this area as they please, but beer could not leave the immediate premises. This seems counterproductive, considering that a Bud Light booth existed right in front of the Brew Hee Haw entrance.
  • Limited restrooms: Any beer fest must have ample access to restrooms. Brew Hee Haw guests could only use the fair’s restrooms, which saw a consistently long line all day.
  • Other restrictions: Attendees could not bring beer outside of the Brew Hee Haw area. However, right outside of the Brew Hee Haw, Bud Light booths sold big cups of fizzy yellow beer for $10 each. This also meant that anyone wanting food had to finish their current cup of beer before leaving to go get food and bring it back.

Looking at the big picture, the OC Fair caused the significant problems for this beer festival. On the Brew Hee Haw side, no visible errors occurred.

As previously mentioned, a total of 32 different breweries attended the OC Brew Hee Haw to serve their delicious brews.

  1. Noble Ale
  2. Saint Archer
  3. Heroes Riverside
  4. Green Flash
  5. El Segundo
  6. Goose Island
  7. Golden Road
  8. Newport Beach

  15. Bottle Logic
  16. Lagunitas
  17. Hangar 24
  18. Firestone
  19. Drake’s
  20. Black Market
  21. Beach City
  22. Ballast Point
  23. Bootlegger’s
  24. Modern Times
  25. Lost Abbey
  26. Great Divide
  27. Stone
  28. Taps
  29. Ninkasi

I do not see the Brew Hee Haw as a complete loss for the production crew. Some new opportunities have surfaced following this weekend. The most obvious opportunity revolves around the partnership with the OC Fair. To get into a venue of this significance marks a step through a huge door, and can lead to bigger, grander venues. Also notice the beers available, and the new breweries present. At most beer festivals, organizers obtain their beers from the local breweries that donate to them. At this beer festival, the OC Fair buys beer, meaning that they could have acquired beer from further away that locals may not get much of a chance to try, such as Avery or Great Divide. Finally, like any first-time events, the organizers can learn from the first iteration and improve upon the event by next year.

If you missed out on the Brew Hee Haw, fret not. The one that started them all, OC Brew Ha Ha, returns for its fifth installment on Saturday, September 6th, back at Oak Canyon Park in Irvine. Tickets have already gone on sale for $45 general admission or $60 for entry an hour earlier. All visitors gain access to UNLIMITED beer tastings for the duration of the event from over 80 breweries serving over 170 different beers. Expect to find plenty of food trucks, other food vendors, free soft drinks, merchandise booths, beer industry speakers, games, and more, which includes live music. Recall that Reel Big Fish performed at last year’s Brew Ha Ha, and expect the Brew Ha Ha crew to step up their game for this year. Who will perform?

A session will take place 6-10pm on Friday, 12-4pm and 5-9pm on Saturday, and 12-4pm on Sunday.

Parking at the OC Fair costs $10 cash per vehicle.

Following the run, all participants can stay for the after party that goes on all night. Registration costs $30 online and $40 on the day of the event.
