A sunny summers day in Southern California is hard to beat; but our friends at Beach Grease Beer Co. know how to turn good to great with their unique brand of party. In a short space of time Beach Grease Beer Co. have established themselves as one of California’s premium producers of amber beverages, with this party marking the anniversary of two years in business.
Abandon all thoughts of jumping castles, balloons and a face painting that you might expect from a second birthday. Shift that thinking to bands, cars, motorcycles and of course the Uppercut Deluxe ‘Cut Bus’ Mobile Barbershop. Festivities started early and by 1pm the front car park of their Vista, California, location filled up with Rat Rods, Hot Rods and a handful of custom-built choppers. Inside the brewery itself a crowd quickly grew around a back drop of hand painted surfboards, art installations and display motorcycles. Meanwhile, a range of bands belted out tunes, the Beach Grease brewing vats at their back providing very apt raw and grungy acoustics.
Flowing through the crowd and pass the bar to the rear of the building, one found a slightly more mellow vibe of ‘classic cuts and pizza crusts’ with the Uppercut Deluxe Cut Bus serving up Free Haircuts to party goers, right next door to the Sgt Pepperonis Pizza Van. A combination of style and taste unlikely to be forgotten. Brandon Perez – Owner and Operator of Vista Barber Co and Bradley De La Cruz of Bravehold Barber Co cut up an absolute storm. Battling blazing sun and "beer'd up" patrons to produce roughly 10 high quality cuts each. Thanks, boys, for your hard work and efforts, you can rest assured that any sore heads that followed the event will at least be looking sharp.
To the good people at Beach Grease Beer Co, thanks for having us and we look forward to the next soiree.
