Tickets for the Noon-9pm pre-party are $10 at www.punkinthepark.com.

The party will also provide exclusive early access to Punk In The Park merch, and no fee tickets for the November 4 & 5 festival will be available for purchase onsite.
Punk In The Park-ing Lot will also celebrate the release of Punk In The Park West Coast IPA, a collaboration between Stone Brewing and Rad Beer Co. Cans of the 6.3% ABV and 45 IBU Punk In The Park West Coast IPA will be available to purchase at the brewery during the pre-party, and the beer will be available at the November 4 & 5 festival.
Event producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions explained, “The reason I got into craft beer was because of Stone Brewing. I remember back before Brew Ha Ha Productions even existed, we would drive down to Carlsbad from OC to stock up on Stone Pale Ale, IPA and Arrogant Bastard because it wasn’t available up north yet. We’ve had an incredible relationship with Stone for so many years and now as one of the owners at Rad Beer Co., doing a collaboration for Punk In The Park together is literally a dream come true. One of my business partners and brewer extraordinaire at Rad Beer, Dylan Mobley, got his start as a professional brewer in San Diego at Stone. This beer is another kick ass collaboration and I am so stoked for everyone to try it!”
The Punk In The Park West Coast IPA can reads: “In collaboration with our friends and craft beer legends at Stone Brewing, we have brewed this epic West Coast IPA for PUNK IN THE PARK, November 4th & 5th, 2023 in Orange County, CA. Brewed with pure Idaho malted barley, Nelson Sauvin, Citra and featuring Phantasm. Phantasm is produced from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grape skins which are very high in thiols. [It’s] fermented with Thiolized yeast, which is designed to utilize thiols present in hops, and Phantasm to produce huge tropical fruit notes.”
