    You're friend is a magician, and I need to meet him. Plus apparently we left before the pourers took off the blinders and were just giving out free samples to everyone within reach.

    This year is gonna be good - wonder if they'll have more green hop oil/food coloring to play with? Really kicked the Knuckle Sandwich up a notch and made Humulus even more exciting.

    Just trying to decide where to spend the night...probably somewhere near Disneyland so we can stumble around Downtown Disney in our drunken stupor and scare families.

    Is anyone buying an extra ticket instead of a DD ticket so they can use the extra tasters? Just wondering, because I haven't seen anyone post about doing that yet...

    I emailed asking them if there would be vegetarian options (for my wife), and they said that they would request some veggie options.

    Nice! I'm always surprised that anywhere in SoCal would ever think of NOT having a veggie option.

    Is anyone familiar with the sort of food that Haven is known for? I get that they are a gastropub, but what do people think they would offer at a festival like this?
     
  22. PlinyTheYoungest

    Here's their menu: http://www.havengastropub.com/orange/eat.html
    The Haven burger is a popular item but I've never had it as I'm not a fan of onions and they don't take kindly to modifications. They used to have some pulled pork sliders that were pretty good, I could see them doing some sort of sliders and maybe some of their flatbreads. But who knows.

    Hmm thanks. Doesn't sound bad. It doesn't matter too much to me, I
    mean it's a craft beer event - food is not going to make or break it.

    I'm flying out with a friend from upstate NY. Can't wait, first time in the area for beer stuff. Have a rental car but have to finalize my plans and accommodations. If anyone has any insight into anything good going on from Thursday through Monday let me know! Also cheap hotels near Phoenix Club seem pretty slim at this point so I'm going to have to do more research. Also, do people usually run out of tickets at these events? I could see that being a little frustrating.

    If you have a rental car it shouldn't be a big deal finding a cheap motel - there's a decent Motel 6 at the 91 freeway and State College - about 2-3 miles away from the Phoenix Club that runs about $50-$60. Also a best western next to the Bruery (also a couple of miles) that goes about $100.

    For fun stuff try the OC Weekly listings @ ocweekly.com

    Looks like Bootlegger's last day of operations in their old tasting room is Saturday as well from noon to close. Definitely worth checking out, esp for the closing festivities. If you can't find a hotel near the Phoenix Club, look in Fullerton near Bootlegger's.
