We’ve been following the progress — and we use that term loosely — of Montclair’s two planned breweries, and one of them — Sandbox Brewing Company — finally opens today (July 7).
Has it really been two years?
At the time Riverside’s Thompson Brewing Co. closed — back in August 2015 — I noted that the brewery would be closing for “a few months” while it relocated to a much larger space across the street at 9900 Indiana Ave., Suites 6 and 7.
Well, compared to a thousand, 25 is a few.
Proposed opening dates came and went. Until recently, their Instagram bio still indicated they were planning to open in January 2017.
Offering a truly unique experience for Inland Empire (and likely Southern California) beer drinkers, Sour Cellars officially opens December 30 in Rancho Cucamonga.
You see, every beer produced by the brewery is a barrel-aged sour, plus the brewery specializes in newly isolated wild yeast strains.
Beer geeks, rejoice!
Cal Poly Pomona has opened what it says is the first-ever brewery-restaurant at a college campus.
Innovation Brew Works will celebrate its grand opening from 4 to 8 p.m. tomorrow (February 20).
Innovation’s café has been open since September, but its brewery has only been brewing since December.
The brewery’s current tap list consists of five house brews — an orange wheat, a porter and red, blond and brown ales — and seven brews from local breweries, including Dale Bros. Brewery, Alosta Brewing Co., Claremont Craft Ales and Ritual Brewing Co.
