Dubbed simply The Festival 2014, the products of almost 100 breweries will be featured this weekend as a sort of preview for Brouwerij West, which will open next year at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles.
Sadly, organizers have chosen for some reason to ignore most of the breweries in the burgeoning Los Angeles craft brew scene — only Torrance’s Monkish Brewing Co., will be present — but there are plenty from around the world.
On Saturday (November 1), Ritual Brewing Co. in Redlands will be celebrating its second anniversary and has several special brews lined up for the event.
In addition to the release of 2014 Big Deluxe Imperial Oat Stout, the brewery will have several variations on hand.
Attendees will have the chance to sample 2013 Big Deluxe and several barrel-aged versions, along with Big Deluxe brewed with vanilla, Parliament Chocolate, Stell Coffee and other flavors.
Riverside’s Packinghouse Brewing Company is celebrating its fourth anniversary tomorrow (October 18).
The ‘Rhythm and Brews’ event will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. at the brewery, 6421 Central Ave., Suite 101-A,
There’s an air of mystery about the event; the brewery isn’t saying what beers they will serve or what their hours are after Saturday.
The brewery’s slogan is “it’s more than beer. It’s community,” but it would be nice to see them focus on the beer just a tiny bit.
If anyone has more information, feel free to leave a comment.
Here’s more from the Burbank press release:
When patrons book a room at a Burbank hotel via www.visitburbank.com for a staycation on the night of October 18, they simply send their confirmation number and the name of the hotel to firstname.lastname@example.org. Complimentary tickets are valued at $55 each, for a total of $110, and will be available at the check-in booth when they arrive at the Biergarten.
The event will feature food, music and special beer releases:
- CRANGO: A blend of Sour Cran-Cherry Queen, Oktober Fiesta and Mango Shandy
- Galleano Port Barrel Aged Beers
- Habanero IPA
Tickets (available at the door) are $10 and include a Dale Bros. stein and your first fill. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Upland Community Partnership for Youth Development, an organization that provides educational and enriching after-school programs for at-risk kids.
Saturday (October 4) is going to be a busy day at Redlands’ Hangar 24 Craft Brewery.
Not only is it the release day for its seasonal Local Fields beer, Gourdgeous, but the brewery is also releasing its newest Barrel Roll series beer, Falling Leaf ($20 for a 750ml bottle), which just happens to be Gourdgeous aged for a year in Bourbon barrels.
But perhaps the biggest news is the launch of the Barrel Roll Membership Club.
Purchase a membership, and you’ll be treated to a box of barrel-aged and special release beers every three months for a year. At least one beer per quarter will be produced strictly for club members.
And presumably at other BJ’s locations, too.
Here’s more from the BJ’s press release:
BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse was one of the first to introduce a pumpkin ale in 1996.
In 2010 we perfected the recipe, winning a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Field/Pumpkin Beer category.
This holiday-inspired ale is brewed with real pumpkin and lots of spices for a delicious pumpkin pie flavor. A spicy finish balances this fresh, flavorful ale’s sweet start, while a combination of specialty malts adds a beautiful orange hue.
