No less than four beer events are taking place across the Inland Empire this busy Saturday (March 28).
In Redlands, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery is releasing this year’s Hammerhead ($20 per 750 mL bottle), its rye-whiskey-and-bourbon-barrel-aged barleywine. However, this year, there are some exciting twists. A couple hundred bottles of Augie’s Coffee Hammerhead ($25 per 750 mL bottle, limit one) and Bourbon Chai Hammerhead ($25 per 750 mL bottle, limit one) will be available for sale, and likely to be gone in the first hour of sales.
All three will be available on tap, along with an Old Fashioned Hammerhead, on Randall with cherries and orange peel.
Redondo Beach’s King Harbor Brewing is releasing its second bottled beer at 6 p.m. Saturday, its Abel Brown, which is made with a medium roast Arabica bean coffee.
Buy two bottles and get a free KHBC coffee mug, perfect for that breakfast beer.
Details: Local tattoo artists, Sam Harang and Chris Bowman of Yer Cheatin’ Heart will be showcasing their art plus live music. Food will be available throughout the night by Son of a Bun.
There will be Absolution swag giveaways all day, the launch of their latest brew in collaboration with Sole Coffee Company and, of course, cake!
Tickets are available now for the Shamrocked Beerfest, set for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday (March 14) at San Manuel Stadium in San Bernardino.
