Hop Saint, as it’s being called, should arrive by early next year in an area that has a dearth of such watering holes.
It will become the city’s second brewpub after the venerable
Red Car Brewery and Restaurant, which itself is expanding after more than a decade in business.
For more on the planned brewpub, see the story in the Torrance-based Daily Breeze
Chino Valley Brewery has closed.
You can exhale…it’s only temporary.
After the brewery’s landlord didn’t renew its lease a couple of weeks back, the owners began the search for a new location.
It’s still Oktoberfest season, which means there are events this weekend, including one Saturday (October 4) in Corona.
Taste of Brew’s inaugural Oktoberfest is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. at Crossroads Riverview Park, 14600 Baron Drive.
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.
One of the South Bay’s most inventive gastropubs –
Hudson House in Redondo Beach — teams with one of the South Bay’s most creative breweries — Smog City Brewing – for a Oct. 13 beer dinner.
Pouring: Makeout Session, L.A. Saison, Coffee Porter, California Love, and Smoked Smaug Lager.
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.

The Inland Empire has been exploding with new breweries the past couple of years and Saturday’s your chance to sample from most of them, all in one place.
