Football season is here and we just finished installing 3 brand-new 65” televisions in our Tasting Room, two on the patio and one inside so that you don’t even miss a play while you’re getting another pint. We’ll be broadcasting every game airing on CBS, FOX, NBC and ESPN this season!
Of course you’ll need something to drink during all these games. We’ve got our 2014 Pro-Am “Scottmunder” on draught right now, the hoppy golden Dortmunder Export Lager that won this year’s Homebrew Competition. We’ve also still got pints of our Red Rye Ale, 6th Anniversary Saison, and our Local Fields Essence… in addition to all our year-round and seasonal releases.
Here’s everything else going on this week:
Monday – Monday Night Football w/ food from Kabob-o-que
We’ll have the Giants vs Lions game on our TVs kicking off at 4:10pm, followed by Chargers vs. Cardinals at 7:20pm. Kabob-o-que will be here with hot skewers and bacon wraps fresh off the grill from 6-9pm. Now that’s some good football food.
Wednesday – Live music from The Higgs, food from Smokemaster’s BBQ
This week’s music on the patio will feature OC Jam Band The Higgs from 6:30-9:30pm. Your nostrils will be filled with the unresistible aromas of Smokemaster’s BBQ from 6-9pm, so your plate will be stacked with delicious meats and sides to pair with your pint.
Thursday – Thursday Night Football w/ food from Big Easy Sandwich
We’ll be showing the Steelers vs Ravens games on our TV at 5:25pm, and our friends from The Big Easy Sandwich will be here serving up Cajun/Creole entrees from 6-9pm.
Friday – Oktoberfest w/ Coconut Flakes on Cask, Food from Street Tacos
Our 4pm-every-a-Friday casks are one small way that we say, “Welcome, weekend!” This week’s will be our Oktoberfest Fall Lager with the addition of Coconut Flakes. We’ll also have tacos and nachos from Street Tacos between the hours of 5-10pm.
Saturday – Live Music from 60 Grit, Food from Street Tacos
SoCal blues rockers 60 Grit Blues Band will be live on the patio this Saturday evening from 8-10pm, and we’ll have another round of food from Street Tacos from 2-8pm.
Sunday – Food from Street Tacos
Ease into a good Sunday afternoon with food from Street Tacos, who will be stopping by from 1-6pm on our patio. We’ll have our patio air conditioner on to help fight the heat as well. Sitting outdoors drinking a beer while also being air conditioned? It’s almost too good to be true.
August 25, 2014
Coming up this week we’ve got our Hangar 24 and Indycar Fan Appreciation Party on Thursday with our partners at the Autoclub Speedway (race fans won’t want to miss this one), and a brand new beer being released on Saturday, our 2014 Pro-Am “Scottmunder.” Read on to get the full details on both!
Wednesday, August 27 – Music from Redneck Rodeo, Food from 4Tino’s
Redneck Rodeo will be our guests for this week’s Music on the Patio, bringing their collections of, “classic country, dancin’ numbers, and drinkin’ songs, all the way up to today’s newest country hits” to the Hangar 24 Tasting Room. They’ll take the stage from 6:30-9:30pm.
We’ll also have tacos and loaded nachos from 4Tino’s, serving up from 6-9pm.
Thursday, August 28 – Hangar 24/Indycar Fan Appreciation Event!
As the official craft beer sponsor of the Autoclub Speedway, everyone here at Hangar 24 wanted to bring the excitement of Race Day back to our Tasting Room. We’ll be welcoming an Indycar Series Car and Driver from 6-9pm for photo ops, autographs, questions and more. This is a great chance to learn more about the sport and get some photographs with the car, all in preparation for the MAVTV Indycar World Championship races on Saturday.
Grab some Creole Beef or Cajun Fish and Chips from The Big Easy Sandwich for dinner throughout the event!
Friday, August 29 – Alt-Bier cask w/ Vanilla Beans, Oak, Maple Syrup
“It’s 5 o’clock somewhere” is what runs through our minds when we tap our Friday casks at 4pm… just in case you happen to get off early and don’t want to wait until the clock strikes 5. This week we’ve got Alt-Bier Amber Ale with additions of vanilla beans, oak chips, and maple syrup.
Kabob-A-Que will be in the house from 5-10pm with grilled kabobs, bacon wrapped jalapenos, and other beer-y foods that go perfect with a pint.
Saturday, August 30 – Pro-Am 2014 “Scottmunder” Release, Baby’s Badass Burgers
Scott Satterthwaite won our 2014 Homebrew Competition with his version of the Dortmunder Export- a classic, pale golden lager style hailing from Dortmund, Germany. True Dortmunder Export Lagers feature sweet, biscuity malt flavors and a full body, balanced with a good hop bite and spicy hop aroma. Scott’s recipe executed each of these perfectly, earning him the title of “Best of Show” in this year’s field of over four hundred beer entries. We’re excited to have had the chance to brew this beer with Scott on our full system, and are counting down the days until we can start drinking pints of it with our Tasting Room guests. Come October, we’ll be entering this beer on Scott’s behalf in the 2014 Great American Beer Festival Pro-Am Competition. Will it go all the way? Stay tuned!
In the meantime we’ll have “Scottmunder” available in pints and growlers.
Baby’s Badass Burgers will be in the house from 5-10pm serving up gourmet burgers like the “She’s Smokin’” stacked with smoked cheddar, BBQ sauce, crispy onions and bacon.
Sunday, August 31 – Food from Kabob-a-Que
Kabob-A-Que will be back from 2-8pm with grilled kabobs, bacon wrapped jalapenos, and other beer-y foods that go perfect with a pint.
August 22, 2014
Come join Hangar 24 Craft Brewery in welcoming an Indycar Series car and driver to the Hangar 24 Tasting Room on Thursday, August 28th from 6-9pm.
This is a great chance to meet the driver, ask any questions you have about the sport, or take some photographs with the car and driver… all while enjoying a pint with your friends and family!
You’ll have a great chance to buy discounted tickets to the race, and we’ll have our friends at The Big Easy Sandwich here grilling up cajun fish and chips, creole beef sandwiches, and more. This will also be a great chance to try some of our most recent beer releases, like this year’s batch of Local Fields Polycot and our Oktoberfest Fall Lager, which just debuted this month in a brand new 6-pack format.
We’re thrilled to be bringing our local craft beers to the national stage of the MAVTV Indycar 500 World Championships, and this is the perfect way to bring that excitement back to our own brewery, and to our friends, family and fans.
