In the spirit of the holiday season, the Award Winning Bootlegger’s Brewery, Pizza Port San Clemente and Newport Beach Brewing Company have come together for the first time to create the “Brew Ho Ho Holiday Strong Ale” exclusively for this festival. Brewed with English yeast and chocolate malts, this limited release beer contains subtle hints of sugar and spice for the holidays and will be unveiled for the very first time at the OC Brew Ho Ho! This beer can be enjoyed right away or aged for later. A limited number of bottles of this special beer will be available to purchase at the breweries after the festival.
