About Brew Ha Ha Productions:

Brew Ha Ha Productions (BHHP) is Orange County, California's most successful craft beer event producer. Its team brings years of successful event production and business experience along with an inside view of the craft beer industry and its enthusiasts. Fueled by a desire to promote craft beer (particularly Orange County brewed), along with a vision of a different kind of beer fest, the Orange County Brew Ha Ha Craft Beer Festival was conceived. With a goal of also giving back, the inaugural event was held on September 11, 2010, "a day of remembrance" which added a new level of purpose and passion for this event. In keeping with the theme of 9/11, the Orange County Fallen Firefighters Relief Fund was adopted as the charity for this event. The event was a resounding success and has been voted "BEST Craft Beer Festival in Southern California" five years in a row by the Orange County Beer Society. In six short years, BHHP has enjoyed unprecedented growth making them the largest craft beer event producers in Orange County and one of the largest on the west coast.
