We had a lot of fun at last August's first annual OC Beer Festival at Irvine Lake. Then again, we didn't pay the full $40 to get in.
Organizers at Drink Eat Play apparently had a good time last year, too, because they've just announced they're do it again on Saturday, May 15 from 1 to 4 p.m.
A host of local, international and nation breweries will once again
offer unlimited 4-oz. pours to attendants. Apparently, the beer
selection will top 200 brews, and glam-rock revivalists Metal Shop will
take to the stage again.
Enter “facebook” on tickets purchased before March 1 to get 20% of the
$40 admission price. Designated driver tickets cost only $15–of
course, you get no beer with that–and can be purchased by entering
ticket code “dd”.
