Brewery turns three, celebrates with friends


Inland Empire Brewing Company in Riverside will be celebrating its third year in business this Saturday (February 25).

The brewery is bringing in other I.E. breweries (Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Dale Bros. Brewery, Packinghouse Brewing Co., Big Cheese Pizza and Brewery, Main Street Brewery, Craft Brewing Co. , Taps Fish House and Brewery and Kat Daddy) and breweries from beyond the I.E. (Stone Brewing Co., The Bruery, Lost Abbey, Noble Ale Works, Left Coast Brewery and Bootlegger’s Brewery) to help celebrate.

Throw in a few food trucks (Short Rib BBQ, Gourmet Genie and the I.E.’s own Stella Pierre’s Gourmet Grub and Suite 106 Cupcakery) and you’ve got yourself a party.

A $30 entry fee includes 15 beer samples from the participating breweries. Proceeds will help feed the hungry here in the Inland Empire.

Designated drivers and other non-drinkers can attend for free.

The event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the door.

Inland Empire Brewing Company is at 1710 Palmyrita Ave., Suite 11, in Riverside.
