The event will take place from 5 to 9 p.m.
A yellow school bus will shuttle participants between the two breweries every half hour.
You now have one more reason to make a Thursday night stop at Hangar 24 Craft Brewery in Redlands, at least this month.

The Southern California brewery boom continues unabated, with three new San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire breweries opening recently and another three getting ready to open.
Monrovia’s first craft brewery, Pacific Plate Brewing Co., opened at the end of August. Pacific Plate’s brews are a mix of traditional (Bavarian Hefeweiss, English Mild Ale) and more experimental fare, often with a Latin flavor (Agave Wheat, Mango IPA, Horchata Stout). The brewery is open 4 to 10 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. Pacific Plate Brewing Co. is at 1999 S. Myrtle Ave. Read more here.
A pair of chemists are behind Federal Brewing in South El Monte, which just opened its tasting room at the end of September. Apparently, the brewers’ chemistry background is conducive to producing great beers…the brewery’s Yelp page has 14 reviews, all of them five-star. The brewery’s tasting room opens at 3 p.m. daily, and closes at 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 7 p.m. the rest of the week. Federal Brewing is at 1822 Chico Ave. Click here to read more.
Incidentally, it’s going to the cats as well.
The 21-and-over event will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday (October 5) at the brewery, 6124 Central Ave., Suite 101-A.
The “Hops & Hounds *” fundraiser will feature a beer garden (obviously), plus food trucks and live bands.
Name changes appear to be the order of the day.
In the works for a while, but made official shortly after the rechristening of Coastline Brewing to King Harbor Brewing Company, comes the change of Redlands’ Donkey Punch Brewing Co. to the more palatable Wild Donkey Brewing Co.
Wild Donkey Brewing Co., 2351 W. Lugonia Ave., Suite G, is also of the two dozen SoCal breweries participating in the Hangar 24 Oktoberfest/Beerfest., happening this Saturday (September 28).
No sooner had Redondo Beach’s first craft brewery made a splash on the front page of the Daily Breeze than the brewery’s owners decided a name change was in order to ensure no one got confused with the name’s similarity to this Northern California winery.
So it’s in with King Harbor Brewing Company and out with the more generic former name that frankly had little connection to the South Bay anyway.
And you can bet the new name alone will get them a tap at Naja’s.
Meanwhile, the brewery hit a major milestone last weekend.
Redlands’ Hangar 24 Craft Brewery is once again hosting an Oktoberfest celebration at Sylvan Park (University Street and Colton Avenue) in Redlands.
This year, however, the festivities are stretching over two weekends.
Saturday (September 21), the brewery is going it alone, serving its own brews at the event, which will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Rheinlanders will perform.
Tickets are just $5 at the door, and proceeds, as in past years, will benefit the Redlands Optimist Club.
The following Saturday’s (September 28) Oktoberfest will also include a Beerfest, when Hangar 24 will be joined by 33 other breweries and cider makers, including 23 from Southern California.
