USA Trip. Part 2 – @Hangar24Brewery

   Posted by: Wobbles   in beer, craftbeer

So on the way back from Big Bear, I stopped in at a local microbrewery at the bottom of the hill called Hangar 24.  A few of the Big Bear locals had been raving about this beer called the ‘Hammerhead’ and had mentioned the brewery as a worthwhile visit so I took a short detour off the highway to get there.  One local looked up the address then told me not to bother because the brewery was ‘7 miles off the highway’, but then conceded it might be worthwhile since I was already some 8,000 miles closer than I was last week…

They have a great selection of beers there.  Their tasting flight comes with a selection of  8 beers setup in their recommended tasting order, and accompanied with a sheet of tasting notes that were very helpful.  I particularly like their California Spring Beer and their Chocolate Porter was pretty damn tasty as well.  One thing I was rather intrigued with was their keg system.  From the board it looked like you could buy either 20L or 50L kegs of their beer, with a service for cleaning & refilling much like we do with Growlers in Australia.   Whilst not likely, that would be something great to see some of our local breweries experiment with… #hope

So if you find yourself either on your way too or on your way back from Big Bear and in need of a refreshing beverage, Hangar 24 is well worth the short detour off the main highway.  It also helps that the tasty flight is under $10.  (I think it was around $8)

Cheers!
