The first-ever Boo Ha Ha A Haunted Oktobeerfest, makes its debut on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, bringing over 80 German style and local craft beers, traditional German food, spooky activities galore, and live entertainment to the OC Fair and Event Center.
Produced by Brew Ha Ha Productions, the most successful beer festival producer in the United States, Boo Ha Ha will feature a curated selection of craft beers conjured up by some of the nation’s top breweries. Attendees will taste unlimited samples of over 80 craft beers from breweries including 2 Towns Ciderhouse, Belching Beaver, Bottle Logic, Common Cider Company, Docent, Firestone Walker, Franziskaner, Helmsman, Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Spaten, Ten Mile Brewing Co, and more.
“After a year of Ten Mile Brewing Co. participating in Brew Ha Ha Production events all over Orange County, we are excited to participate in the very first Boo Ha Ha,” said Jesse Sundstrom, Co-owner and Head Brewer of Ten Mile Brewing Co. “We know it will be a great time and will be pouring our brand-new Oktoberfest beer, as well as some of our other core offerings!”
While attendees pick their poison from the rare and German-inspired beer offerings, they can also enjoy German-inspired food including an impressive sausage selection from The Sausage King like the ever-popular Bratwurst, Bockwurst, Weißwurst and Knackwurst.
The inaugural event also features wicked live musical entertainment from Orange County Oingo Boingo tribute band Dead Man’s Party and Devotional the Depeche Mode experience on Friday. Saturday attendees can enjoy heavy metal mariachi band Metalachi and Mismiths, a tribute to Misfits and The Smiths. In addition, frightfully fun activities such as stein holding competitions, zombie face painting, and Halloween costume contests will take place throughout the night.
Unlimited tastings will be held from 6 - 9 p.m. with concessions for purchase until 11:30 p.m. VIP guests are invited to enjoy access to a private “Rattskeller” lounge, and the chance to trick or treat themselves to a rare beer selection exclusive to VIP guests.
