The third annual OC Brew Ho Ho! Holiday Ale Festival returns to the Anaheim Phoenix Club on December 13 with over 100 fine craft beers from some of the finest breweries in Southern California and beyond. Over half of the beer selections will feature special seasonal, holiday and winter ales as well as celebrate the newest OC Brew Ho Ho collaboration, “Chernyy Medved.”

This year’s Brew Ho Ho collaboration features two outstanding Southern California breweries; Valiant Brewing from Orange, CA and Black Market Brewing Co. from Temecula, CA. Together with the Brew Ha Ha team, the breweries developed an unapologetic collaboration that represents the best of both breweries.  The new 13% ABV beer coined “Chernyy Medved” combines vanilla bean, cherries, and smoked wood to create a complex and robust Russian Imperial Stout that will be available in bottles and at craft beer centric drinking establishments in Southern California.

Chernyy Medved will release first at The Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen. OC Brew Ho Ho, Valiant Brewing and Black Market Brewing Co. invite beer aficionados to the official collaboration release party at The Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen on December 10 at 6 p.m. The release event will feature gastro culinary samples and live music from Sean & Sander with Steve Soto and Allison June & Joey of Old Man Markley.

Modern Times Beer, Ritual Brewing Co., Saint Archer Brewing Company and Smog City Brewing to name a few.
