It’s been a while since we’ve done an update on Inland Empire breweries, so, let’s catch up, shall we?
Two new, long-anticipated breweries opened last month: Upland’s Rök House Brewing Company and Rancho Cucamonga’s Hamilton Family Brewery.
Rök House has become the third point of what we’re calling the “Beermuda Triangle,” with its proximity to both Claremont Craft Ales and Dale Bros. Brewery.
The brewery is celebrating its grand opening “Röxtravaganza” from noon to 10 p.m. this Saturday (August 2), with seven beers on tap and food available from the Viking Truck (naturally!), Pappas Artisanal and Buttercup Catering.
Congratulations to Claremont Craft Ales on its second anniversary! The brewery is celebrating Saturday (July 26) in two sessions: noon to 4 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m.
On tap will be 20 beers, including several new varieties and several barrel-aged brews.
Food will be available from Buttercup Catering, the Corner Butcher Shop, My Delight Cupcakery and Pappas Artisanal.
Looking for a brew fest?
Head to Corona! That’s where you’ll find the TAPS Fish House & Brewery Craft Brew Festival from noon to 3 p.m. today (July 19).
Tickets for the festival are $50 and include 15 drink tickets and unlimited food sampling from eight regionally-themed food stations.
Proceeds will benefit the Corona/Norco YMCA.
A number of breweries from across Southern California are scheduled to participate.

It’s a family-friendly event, and kids can enjoy free samples of Batch Craft Soda and draw on the Chalkmobile.
The Claremont Village Blues and Brews Craft Beer Walks will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. today (June 28).

It’s time once again for Hangar 24 Craft Brewery to bring back Essence in all its citrusy glory!
Part of the brewery’s Local Fields series, the double IPA is brewed with Redlands navel and blood oranges and grapefruit.
The brewery will celebrate its release from 11 a.m. to midnight today (June 7).
Although the weather may warrant it, the calendar indicates summer is still three weeks away.
However, that’s not stopping Ontario’s Chino Valley Brewery from having its Summer Celebration today (May 31).
The event will take place from 2 to 9 p.m. at the brewery, 1630 E. Francis St, Unit J.
The festivities include a new brew, beer bingo, live music from 6 to 8 p.m., and food from à la minute and Da Kine BBQ.

This week, three new breweries opened in Riverside.
The twist is that they’re all at the same location.
We’ve been following the progress of Polymath Brewing Co. and Delicious Science Brewery for a while now, via their Facebook pages.
The breweries (and a third, Seven Brethren Brewing aka Seven Brothers Brewing) are now operating under the Brew Crew, Inc. umbrella.
