hangar24 betty ipa

Hangar 24 Betty IPA is one of the brewery’s most popular year-round American IPAs, which made its debut on tap in May of 2013. It took Hangar 24 eight months to create the perfect blend of hops, tropical fruit, citrus, berries, and peach. Let’s not forget to mention 68 IBUs and 6.5% ABV, making it a beer you want to drink every single day.

When naming the famous Betty IPA, Hangar 24 brought their love of flying to the table. “The beer’s name pays homage to the pin-up art that adorned the planes of American B17 pilots during World War 2. These pilots would commission these fantastic works of art on the noses of their planes, and it serve as a daily reminder of the home they were fighting to protect.”


Hangar 24 Betty IPA will be featured at Taste of Brews Inland Empire on May 21, 2016. Make sure not to miss out on the unlimited pours of this tasty craft beer. Buy your tickets today HERE!
