Producer John Reese of SGE explains, “We wanted to create a new beer, wine and food festival married with a music and comedy festival that had three headliners: the drinks, the food, and the entertainment. Since we’re Orange County based ourselves, we wanted to highlight the best of region’s beers, wines, artisan nibbles, music and comedians from our own backyard.”

“We have never been more excited about bringing a new event to Orange County,” says Cali UNCORKED co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions. “For the past six years we have built a reputation for producing the highest quality and attended craft beer festivals in Southern California, and that reputation is important to us. We enthusiastically enter into this new venture with SGE confident that we will be presenting a world class event unlike anything our attendees have seen before!”
