What do you get when you combine an air show with a brewfest and a food truck festival in one family-friendly event?
You get the fourth annual
Brew with a View at Riverside’s Packinghouse Brewing Co.
The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday (April 5) at the brewery,
6421 Central Ave., Suite 101-A.
For those who haven’t yet visited the brewery, it’s directly across the street from the Riverside Municipal Airport, which is hosting its annual
air show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day.
Ready for their closeup: Two of the three King Harbor Brewing co-owners, brewer Phil McDaniel and Tom Dunbabin, pose for Daily Breeze photographer Brad Graverson at their new brewery, which opens its doors to the public Saturday.

Head to Chino Valley Brewery on Saturday and you could go home with a new friend, but it’s probably not what you’re thinking.

Saturday marks the first opportunity for most local beer drinkers to sample the forthcoming offerings from soon-to-open King Harbor Brewing, Redondo Beach’s first craft brewery (and before anyone comments or emails, venerable Redondo Beach Brewing Co. is a brewpub, not a craft brewer).
Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach will showcase a selection of beers from the fast-growing South Bay and Los Angeles craft brew industry as you can see from the above graphic, including King Harbor, which just saw its first-ever keg of beer head out the brewery’s doors this week.
The name conjures up frenemies fighting for the affections of a redheaded teenager, or perhaps a leggy blonde pin-up.
As it turns out, it’s the latter which inspired the name of
Hangar 24 Craft Brewery’s latest India Pale Ale.
