OC Beer Week is a collection of events county-wide showcasing the best of what OC has to offer. For example, at Riip Beer Co they are crafting 3 special beers for the week. A pair are collaborations, one with There Does Not Exist (San Luis Obispo) and the other with North Park Brewing Company (San Diego). All participating Orange County craft breweries are also brewing a fundraiser beer for the OC Brewers Guild called Guilded Together.
OC Brewers Guild President & Board Member and Director of Brewing & Operations for Rip Beer Co, Ian McCall, continues with us in-studio along with other members of the OCBG to tap the keg on all the effervescent specifics of OC Beer Week. Ian remains joined by fellow OCBG members Keith Pumilia (Co-Founder) of Everywhere Beer Co. (Orange) and Brian Rauso (Co-founder) of Green Cheek Brewing Co. (Orange, Costa Mesa and Sunset Beach)
