Hangar 24 Craft Brewery is releasing its latest Barrel Roll limited edition brew tomorrow (March 30) and it’s another redux — Hammerhead.
Hammerhead is an American-style Barleywine made with two English caramel malts and four American hops. It’s aged for six months in charred oak rye whiskey and bourbon barrels.
The 2012 edition took silver in the Wood and Barrel Aged Strong Beer category at the Los Angeles International Commercial Beer Competition.
Hammerhead will be available on tap and in 750 mL bottles at the brewery, 1710 Sessums Drive, Redlands, and beginning Monday (April 1) at select California locations.
5,520 bottles were produced for this year’s run, on a par with last year’s. This year’s edition has a slightly lower alcohol content.
The next Barrel Roll release, scheduled for June, will be new.
Attention bakers! You can help end childhood hunger.
Over the last six years, the I.E. Cookie Monsters have quietly raised over $10,000 for Share Our Strength’s Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry.
This year’s bake sale is being held Saturday, March 30, and they could use your help.
All you have to do is volunteer to make something for the sale. They are looking for pretty much any and all baked goods — cupcakes, brownies, breads, cookies, pies and cakes — as well as other goodies, like caramel apples, fudge and toffee to sell.
Mark your calendars now!
