The best little brewhouse in Chino just got a whole lot bigger.
I & I Brewing has moved from its cozy quarters at 14175 Telephone Ave., Suite J, where it has been for two years, to a much larger and more visible space at 5135 Edison Ave., Suites 1 and 2, which seems like it’s been in the works for nearly that long.
If you’ve ever ventured out to I & I before (and if you haven’t…why not?), you’ve likely passed the new location on your way to the old one.
South El Monte’s best (OK, only) brewery, Federal Brewing, recently underwent a name change in response to a cease-and-desist letter — not from a similarly-named up-and-coming Maryland brewery, but from a certain L.A. County drinking establishment, which shall remain nameless.
The brewery is now known as Progress Brewing. Please update your bookmarks accordingly.
Pomona’s The Rookery Alehouse & Grill is celebrating its first anniversary this weekend, and it’s kicking off the festivities at 11 a.m. today (January 17).

Chino’s I & I Brewing will break all the rules and open on a Sunday — to celebrate its second anniversary this weekend.
The event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday (January 5) at the brewery, 14175 Telephone Ave., Suite J.
It’ll likely be the last celebration at the brewery’s current location, as its long-in-the-works, much larger, more visible spot just around the corner at 5135 Edison Ave., Suites 1 & 2, is this close (* holds index finger and thumb about an inch apart) to opening.
As with its first anniversary, while supplies last, customers will receive a special anniversary pint glass free with the purchase of their first pint of beer.
