Don't go to the Costa Mesa brewery for the run-of-the-mill food, but do go for the beers. This Saturday, at noon, $20 ($25 on the door) gets you five tastings and admission to the onsite concert, which has a not-bad lineup (The Colourist, Dusty Rhodes and The Fling).

Proceeds wil benefit two charities--the Surfrider
Foundation and the Karl Strauss
Brewers Education Fund, which I'm convinced is just a front for people to drink beer and get paid for it. Where can I sign up?
