There are two big beer festivals going on this weekend in Southern California. The California Beer Festival is setting up in San Dimas with a huge event planned. Meanwhile, 35 miles away, the OC Brew Ha Ha is gearing up to celebrate their 5th year at the Irvine Lake. Both events are for ages 21+, and both events offer a great food selection.
