Craft beer! Ponies! Music!
Read more about the Big ‘Cap Craft Beer and Music Festival and the Southern California breweries taking part here.
Saturday marks the first opportunity for most local beer drinkers to sample the forthcoming offerings from soon-to-open King Harbor Brewing, Redondo Beach’s first craft brewery (and before anyone comments or emails, venerable Redondo Beach Brewing Co. is a brewpub, not a craft brewer).
Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach will showcase a selection of beers from the fast-growing South Bay and Los Angeles craft brew industry as you can see from the above graphic, including King Harbor, which just saw its first-ever keg of beer head out the brewery’s doors this week.
The name conjures up frenemies fighting for the affections of a redheaded teenager, or perhaps a leggy blonde pin-up.
As it turns out, it’s the latter which inspired the name of
Hangar 24 Craft Brewery’s latest India Pale Ale.
Valiant Brewing Company will celebrate its first anniversary tomorrow (March 1).
The event will run from noon to 11 p.m. at the brewery,
2294 N. Batavia St., Unit C.
The celebration will include a car show and, of course, plenty of beer!
Newport Beach Brewing Company’s Brew Fest is Sunday (February 23).
The sixth annual event is set for 1 to 5 p.m. at the brewery,
2920 Newport Blvd., Newport Beach.
Presale tickets ($25, plus $2.37 service fee if purchased online) are available at the brewery and online by clicking
here. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Surfrider Foundation.
It’s OK if you don’t think you’re lucky enough to
win a pint of Russian River Brewing Company’s annual rarity Pliny the Younger.
You still have a chance.
The newest brewery in the O.C.,
Bottle Logic Brewing, will celebrate its grand opening from noon to 11 p.m. today (February 15).
Food will be available from the
Porko Rico BBQ truck from 1 to 9 p.m.
Can’t make it to the grand opening? The brewery will also be hosting a
Brewer’s Brunch beginning at noon on Sunday (February 16), featuring items from Stefano’s Golden Baked Hams, paired with Bottle Logic brews.

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
You can find Bottle Logic Brewing at
1072 N. Armando St., Anaheim, just north of the 91 Freeway at the Kraemer Blvd./Glassell Street exit.
What are you doing Saturday, July 19?
You might want to pencil this in on your calendar: The
Tehachapi Mountain Brew and Grill Fest.
Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder, but have only dreamt of tasting the brewery’s famed Pliny the Younger, which has just been released at the brewery and will be making its way to Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach and Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach.
However, you can’t just walk in and order a pint of the famed triple IPA.
Oh, no…you have to be lucky!
Stumbled across this event recently:
Beats and Brews at Luna Supper Club in Pomona.
It’s scheduled to take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, February 15, at the nightclub,
3220 W. Temple Ave.
It’s being billed as “half beer festival and half music experience,” as guests will be able to sample unlimited pours while listening to music from DJs.
