Nothing flashy, just a real nice microbrewery. Very friendly staff (owners included), more than happy to talk beer with you. Only two beers now ,but more on the way. Beautiful brewing system (copper) that is the focal point of the whole place. Clean bathroom. Nice german growlers for sale as well. Bottles coming in a couple of months, so i am told. Highly recommend.
This is a diamond in the rough. The seating is limited to old beer kegs. The beer is fresh & unpretentious. You have to want to get there - itís off the beaten path. I like visiting whenever Iím doing business in the LA Basin. The Orange Wheat is unique.
Wow, a hidden jem out in the IE. a very odd location, along a small regional airport. Kind of on the end of a street-one way in/out. was worried that cops would just stake this place out and hit people driving out of here drunk. Well, turns out the cops dont even bother people here (according to some people i met while at the brewery). Place is awesome-small old hangar with a tap order bar (with lovely looking waitresses) and outside is a long stretch of picnic tables. very friendly people here and prices were very reasonable. I must stop here again. Beer was very solid, some of the best i had on my CA trip. A MUST stop in the LA basin for sure!
Finally got out here. Quite a drive, but appears to be worth it. For me, its really out of the way. Easy parking once there, great prices, and their beer is pretty killer on tap at the brewery. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. A very worthy stop, although I wish it was closer!
I really enjoyed this location and yes I am biased because itís by an airport. The staff were welcoming and the patrons were equally chatty and made this Hoosier feel welcome. Food not available unless a food truck is there. If youíre out that way definitely make a visit.
Solid brewery with nice patio views of the mountains to the north and sunsets (to the west obviously). Solid beers; well above average. Cask Fridays are fun with a different one off brew each week. They finally stopped playing Queen, Elton John, Steve Miller, et al., and started playing 90s music. Good job, guys. Iím giving you a perfect score for ambiance just for that change! It can get a bit crowded with long lines, but mostly a lively atmosphere with a few beer nerds here and there. So follow that yellow brick road or fly like an eagle or if you want, ride your bicycle! to Hangar 24.
A bit of a drive out by the Redlands airport, but a great place to visit for a beer release or just as a way to try most of the Hangar 24 lineup. Big spacious facility with plenty of parking in the vacant lot next door. A bright spot in the landscape of the Inland Empire beer scene.
Stopped by on the way back from the desert, had heard good things from SamGamgee. Easy to find with GPS, and for a Monday afternoon, the place was busy. Tried the Pale Ale and IPA, both fresh and good. Brought food in and had a quick snack before we hit the road. Also picked up a 3 pack crowler to take home. Lot of options on goodies and beer to buy. Overall a great stop if you are out that way.
This brewery is growing at just a ridiculous rate, but theyíre doing some great stuff. A really massive facility, nice outdoor seating, and plenty of space inside. Really friendly staff, plenty of beers on tap, and good prices. A little bit out in the middle of nowhere for me to visit with any real frequency, but I stop by when I can.
