There's one holiday tradition that we gladly partake in every year—no, not the annual neighborhood reindeerlawn
ornamentrearranging—it's getting drunk. "Christmas drunk." Which is right up there with "Halloween drunk" and "St.
Patty's Day drunk." At Southern California's largest holiday ale festival, patrons can get their holiday cheer on a few
weeks early. Enjoy unlimited samplings of more than 50 craft beers including limited release, first release and holiday
ales. There's also nosh courtesy of gourmet food trucks dishing out topnotch BBQ and burgers. But this admirable
event isn't happening just to make sure you have a great time—proceeds benefit the Pediatric Cancer Research
Foundation, an organization dedicated to bettering the care and survival rates of children with fatal illnesses. So, drink
up! It's for the children.
