Go: Be of good holiday cheer and good local beer with the Oh Hoppy Day! package at Harrah’s Southern California Resort in Valley Center, aka Funner.
Know: Available Thursday through Monday until Dec. 31, the deal includes a room; a tour of SR76 Beerworks, Southern California’s first tribal-owned brewery; a flight of beers and two pints. Rates start at $125.99.
Pro: To make reservations online, use the Oh Hoppy Day! code: MKCBP. Or call the reservations desk and mention the promotion.
Glow: Two-year-old SR76 has 11 house beers on tap. Supul, the Belgian-style saison, is a favorite, and don’t miss Eight & Quarter, the porter. Ales 4 A.L.S., an unfiltered IPA, is a liquid fundraiser for research into Lou Gehrig’s disease (good news since the holidays are all about giving).
To and Fro: While SR76’s quiet, comfortable tasting room occupies its own building outside the main casino complex, several eateries inside the resort pour SR76 beers.
