Packinghouse Brewing Company’s annual Brew with a View event returns Saturday, April 6.
The free, all-ages event will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the brewery, 6421 Central Ave., Suite 101-A.
It coincides with the annual airshow at Riverside Municipal Airport, which runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The airport is across the street from the brewery.
Besides a great view of the airshow, the event will also feature food trucks, including the Bacon MANia truck, Garlicscapes and the Viking Truck.
During its recent 10th anniversary celebration, Dale Bros. Brewery took suggestions for a name for its new Imperial IPA.
The folks at the brewery have narrowed the list down to three (Hopped Upland Imperial IPA, Galaxy Imperial IPA and Inland Empire Imperial IPA), and are looking to pick a winner.
That’s where you come in.

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.

It’s Girl Scout Cookie time again!
If none of your co-workers or family members have girls in the Girl Scouts, you might find it a little tricky to track down Girl Scout Cookies.
Not if you have a smartphone.
There are a pair of apps — each available for iOS and Android — that allow you to search and find Girl Scout Cookie sales in your area.
One, from Kellogg’s, does a reasonable job of letting you know where the sales are by date and location.
The other, from the Girl Scouts themselves, is a little more robust.
Food trucks! Food trucks! Sis boom bah!
Or something like that.
The latest food truck fundraiser takes place from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday (February 9) at Redlands High School, 840 E. Citrus Ave.
Admission is only $5 (kids four and under are admitted free), and proceeds benefit the school’s Spirit Leaders.
The event, organized by our friends from I.E. Gourmet Food Trucks, will take place on the school’s outdoor basketball courts at the southeast corner of the campus.
In addition to the food trucks (including the I.E.’s very own Where’s the Fire Gourmet Pizza), local favorites à la minute and Augie’s Coffee House also will be serving.
