The Phoenix Club, Anaheim
Any beer fest that takes place at the Phoenix Club is a beer fest you want to be a part of -- especially one with more than 100 craft brews on offer. So much of LA’s best beer is brewed in Anaheim (like Noble Ale Works, Bottle Logic, and so many more), making this is an absolute must-do for any beerhead.
If you’re looking to crawl your way through the holidays (and you’re not alone there), a good place to start is the Santa Monica Pub Crawl. You’ll have four crawlable routes, so choose wisely -- though if you want our advice, hit the Pier route since the bars are bigger and you’ll have an easier time getting a drink. Also, please don’t forget to eat. Please.
