Beer is typically found on college campuses, but apparently never like this.
Cal Poly Pomona has opened what it says is the first-ever brewery-restaurant at a college campus.
Innovation Brew Works will celebrate its grand opening from 4 to 8 p.m. tomorrow (February 20).
Innovation’s café has been open since September, but its brewery has only been brewing since December.
The brewery’s current
tap list consists of five house brews — an orange wheat, a porter and red, blond and brown ales — and seven brews from local breweries, including Dale Bros. Brewery, Alosta Brewing Co., Claremont Craft Ales and Ritual Brewing Co.
A few weeks after hosting a Stone Brewing release party,
Alpine Village near Torrance is at it again beginning at 5 p.m. today marking the release of the San Diego County brewery’s latest release: Enjoy by 3-14-15 IPA.
Better get there early though:
The South Bay landmark is also hosting a
craft beer 101 tutorial at 7 p.m. (cost is $5) for novices who want to learn more.
Then at 5 p.m. Friday it’s a
New Belgium Brewing Tap Attack with 5 five beers on draft.
The 5 p.m. Feb. 27 event at
Alpine Village near Torrance features a half dozen of Bell’s Brewing’s products: Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale (a pale ale), Oberon, Kalamazoo Stout, Oarsman Ale, and cans of pale ale and Amber.
Alpine Village, which hosts Southern California’s largest Oktoberfest each fall, would seem to have something in common with the irreverent brewery:
While the Inland Empire’s newest brewery is
celebrating its opening, one of the area’s oldest breweries will be celebrating its 12th anniversary.
Dale Bros. Brewery will host its Brews and Bros Craft Beer Festival from 1 to 5 p.m. today (January 24) at Cable Airport in Upland.
The brothers Dale will be celebrating with 31 other breweries, which will be pouring a planned 80-plus craft brews.
We’ve been following the progress of Redlands’ fourth brewery —
Escape Craft Brewery — for quite a while.
The brewery, owned by San Bernardino firefighter/paramedic Josh Fisher and his wife, Melissa, will be celebrating its soft opening today (January 24).
The event will run from 1 to 8:30 p.m., with the brewery’s Passport members and Kickstarter supporters getting early entry.
There will be small bites created by Chef Jonathon Weiner from
The Lounge 22.
Escape Craft Brewery is at
721 Nevada St. Suite 401. The brewery will be open Thursday through Sunday.
This is an apt event for the South Bay where the numbers of Asian-Americans — and craft beer drinkers — is rapidly rising.
And if you think this sounds familiar, well it does.
The IPA was first released back in 2011 and has now been updated.
And, since the 5 p.m. Jan. 30 event is being billed as tap takeover expect other Stone Brewing creations, too.
The 2015 version of The Nothing (which, if you haven’t tasted it is more everything than nothing) continues The Never-Ending (craft brew) Story, while Infinite Wishes is a new barrel-aged version of the beer.
Here’s more from
The Nothing, our Double Chocolate Imperial Stout, was aged on 70lbs of raw cocoa nibs and is as decadent as they come. Infinite Wishes spent 364 days in bourbon barrels…the perfect combination of rich fudge, vanilla, bourbon spice and oak.
We will have growler fills and draft of The Nothing as well as bottle sales. Infinite Wishes will be available in very limited bottles and on draft only.
The brewery opens at noon Saturday.
Friday’s 5 p.m. event is a release party for Oskar Blues’ IceyPA Keg, said the folks at Alpine Village.
Oskar Blues has allocated only 4 kegs of their coveted IceyPA to the entire South Bay and YOU are invited to have a pint,” Alpine Village officials said on the restaurant’s Facebook page. A full lineup of Oskar Blues’ best brews will be available along with glassware and tasting flights.”
The IPA sounds like a typical West Coast IPA, BTW.
