Hangar 24 Alt-Bier

Caramel and Chocolate Alt is a better way to describe it. Absolutely amazing beer, drinkable, flavorful, smooth and liked by hop heads and beer beginners alike. Will most likely land in your top-10 beer list.

 

In honor of National Growler Day, we were fortunate enough to fill our growler with the delicious Chocolate Porter from Hangar 24 Brewery in Redlands, CA.  We’re proud of our local brewery and wanted to share this excerpt from the website to show you how local this brewery really is:

“Hangar 24 Craft Brewery began with a true passion for good beer, the absolute love of flying and the pure enjoyment of being around great friends. Founder and Master Brewer Ben Cook and his buddies used to meet at hangar 24 [at Redlands Airport] after an afternoon of flying to trade stories, talk aviation, play music and share a few cold ones that Ben just finished brewing at home. These days, the location of where these fine beers are brewed has changed [to right across the street from the airport], but the quality time spent enjoying a delicious, handcrafted beer and conversation with friends is the same as ever. Cheers.”

Ben turned his hobby into one of the best new breweries in America with a strongly supportive community behind it.  If you happen to find yourself in the Southern California area (San Diego to LA), make it a point to pick up a Hangar.  Some of their standout brews are the Alt-Bier, Amarillo Pale Ale, and Orange Wheat (made with locally grown Redlands oranges).  Follow the link below to the website or scroll down to see some of their beautifully designed labels.

Hangar 24 Amarillo Pale Ale

Hangar 24 Amarillo Pale Ale - Amarillo hopped pale ale. Well-balanced but still has enough of a hop kick to satisfy your hedonistic desire for bitterness.

 

Hangar 24 Chocolate Porter

Hangar 24 Chocolate Porter - Definitely deserving of having the word chocolate in the title, this is a sweet, malty porter that's flavorful but not overwhelming. A slight hop characteristic reminds you you're drinking beer.

 

Hangar 24 Orange Wheat

Hangar 24 Orange Wheat is a white ale that's just about as good as one can be. Brewed with locally grown oranges that are wonderfully apparent, the Orange Wheat is an example of how wheat beers should be done.

 

Hangar 24 Columbus IPA

Hangar 24 Columbus IPA is one of Hangar's brews that's disappointingly forgettable. Strong on the Columbus hops, this beer is still a nice example of the style, but slightly lacking on the malt character.
