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.
