Fresh off a summer long stint on the Vans Warped Tour, Southern California’s Reel Big Fish is perhaps best known for the alt-rock hits “Sell Out” and “Beer” and a cameo in the cult film, BASEketball, starring South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The band members themselves are true craft beer aficionados, having even graced the cover of Beer Magazine. Reel Big Fish is excited to perform in front of a hometown crowd of fellow beer/food lovers at the OC BREW HA HA this fall.

Amidst the 175 beers being poured, the event will feature a new collaboration beer called the ”OC Brew Ha Ha Hop Monster” developed by three of OC’s favorite breweries Bootleggers Brewing, Tustin Brewing and Cismontane Brewing.
