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 15 from the Inland Empire.
Talk about kicking a city when it’s down.
This week, the Movoto real estate site posted on its blog “America’s Worst Cities for Food Lovers,” and guess what?
San Bernardino, which filed for bankruptcy over a year ago, landed at the top of the list.
The Movoto blog, billed as “the lighter side of real estate,” also includes such recent posts as “The 50 Most Steampunk Cities in America” and “SpongeBob SquarePants: How Much Does a Pineapple Under the Sea Cost?”
Apparently, they’re used to poking a little fun.
