ANAHEIM, CA (May 9, 2019) – Anaheim’s newest and soon-to-be favorite brewery, Brewheim has partnered with City National Grove of Anaheim as the official craft beer supplier for Orange County’s premier entertainment venue.  The family of beer makers joins family-owned Nederlander Concerts to curate a tasty guest experience at the 1,700-seat venue.

Founded in Anaheim in 2018, Brewheim is co-owned by Dan Ward and Eric Ferguson, with skilled brewmaster, Derek Wasak.  Brewheim will work collaboratively with Aventura Catering, the venue’s exclusive concessionaire, and Nederlander Concerts to deliver top-rated craft beer selections and one-of-a-kind beer experiences at City National Grove of Anaheim - from beer flight tasting’s and pairings during pre-show dinners to special appearances, and seminars from the Brewheim brewmaster and much more.

Currently, City National Grove of Anaheim is serving three signature Brewheim craft beers including Veruca-Blueberry Lager, served with fresh local organic blueberries, Marilyn-Platinum Blonde Ale an ultra-light, crisp blonde ale, and Ziggy-Tropical Session IPA brewed with passion fruit, grapefruit, mango, and blood orange.  In celebration of the venue’s 20th Anniversary, Brewheim is developing a custom-crafted 20th Anniversary Grove Brew set to debut in time for the summer concert season.

“This community partnership pairs great entertainment with great local craft beer,” said Jordan Harding general manager of City National Grove of Anaheim.  “Dan and Eric share our hyperlocal approach to delivering a best-in-class experience, and this partnership was a natural fit for us. We are always looking for ways to improve our guest experience while supporting local vendors at the same time.”

“We at Brewheim believe that beer is about where you are, what you're doing, and who you're doing it with. It's to be enjoyed by all and shared with many.  Beer is fun; beer is family, beer is home.  It's this family aspect of beer that was truly our inspiration to create Brewheim and why we wanted to partner with Nederlander Concerts at City National Grove of Anaheim,” said Dan Ward president and co-founder of Brewheim.

City National Grove of Anaheim also welcomes Bill McClure to lead its food and beverage program with Aventura Catering. McClure brings a wealth of experience to the venue especially in beverage innovation in the sports and entertainment space.
