“Hangar 24 craft brewery began with a true passion for good beer, the absolute love of flying and the pure enjoyment of being around great friends.”
Ben Cook, founder and master brewer of Hangar 24, used to gather with his buddies at hangar 24 after an afternoon of flying to share stories, play music, and drink some delicious brews that Ben had just finished making at home. With the grand opening in 2008, Ben chose the perfect location for Hangar 24, adjacent from the Redlands Airport. These great times and location are the foundation of what is, today, a more than great brewery!
Now, we know that the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday (which means six more weeks of winter, DARN!) but don’t worry because Hangar 24 has brought a little bit of spring to us early! The Hangar 24 California Spring Beer is here to refresh your palate from all of those darker, winter beers. “Pouring a hazy gold with a thick, white head, floral hop aromas spring from the glass to complement the taste of tangy wheat and a bitter, slightly sweet, bready finish.” Using a new recipe, this beer was fermented in two different batches, one using an American Ale yeast and the other using a Belgian Wit yeast. After the two separate batches were finished, they were blended together to create it’s complementary complex flavor.
You can now get this wonderful seasonal spring beer in 6 packs at Hangar’s tasting room! Also, Hangar 24 has about 8 tasty beers that are year round so make sure if you haven’t done so already, to head to the Hangar 24 tasting room or out to your local retail store to pick up a 6 pack of Hangar 24.
Make sure not to miss unlimited Hangar 24 tastings at Twilight Tasting on March 7th! You can purchase tickets HERE!
