We’re always excited to announce new traditions here at the brewery, and we think our latest is one that everyone will enjoy! Think of it as a small tribute to the English drinking tradition of “Pub Quiz.”
Every first and third Tuesday of the month, Strangebrew will be live on our patio from 6:30-9:30 and will MC three rounds of trivia. The rounds kick off at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm, so bring your best team of four and go brain-to-brain over a pint to win some Hangar 24 swag.
See you there!

This coming Saturday is Pugachev’s Barrel-Aged Festival No. 2, one of our favorite days of the year here at the brewery. To celebrate the release of this year’s batch of Barrel Roll No. 3 – Pugachev’s Cobra we’re throwing a barrel-aged festival with food, live music and a spectacular beerlist from throughout the years of our barrel program’s archives. Read on for the full details of everything we’ve got going on this week, all leading up to the Festival.
Monday, 12/2 is Double Mile Monday so come on by the Tasting Room to earn 2 Frequent Flyer miles for every $1 spent. If you’ve achieved Bronze or higher you’ll have access to tonight’s Pilot Batch which will be a German Pilsner brewed with Rye malt, adding a subtle grain spiciness to the classic noble hop aromatics. If you’re not a member, you can get on board today by asking a beertender on your next visit to our Tasting Room.
Missed all our Black Friday deals? Don’t worry, to help prepare for the holidays and to celebrate Cyber Monday, you can visit our web-store and take 15% off any purchase of $20 or more when you use the code H24CYBER at checkout. It ends at midnight on 12/3 so if you’ve got your eye on our new Stainless Steel Growlers and other new merchandise, this is your chance!
Tuesday, 12/3 is the first Tuesday of the month and that means it’s the second iteration of our newest tradition, Trivia Night. Strangebrew will be MCing from 6:30-9:30 and rounds of trivia will kick off at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm, so bring your strongest team of 4 to try and take home a variety of prizes. 4Tinos will be serving up tacos and their trademark chips with salsa baked in, and it will be Frequent Flyer Lottery night, so you’ll also have a chance to win prizes every time a beertender swipes your card.
The B-Players will be taking the stage for Music on the Patio on Wednesday, 12/4 to provide that much appreciated mid-week dose of great music. They’ll be on the patio from 6:30-9:30pm and The Big Easy Sandwich will be cooking up Cajun Fish, Muffalettas and more from 6-9pm.
It’ll be another night of good food on Thursday, 12/5 as we’ll have Hunde & Bier Haus grilling up their trademark gourmet sausages on the patio from 5-9pm.
For Friday, 12/6 we’ve added Apple Spice, Star Anise, Vanilla Bean and Honey to a cask of Chocolate Porter for Twin Engine Cask Night. The cask will begin pouring at 4pm sharp, then stick around because Hillbilly Tacos will be cooking up their take on southern-inspired tacos from 5-10pm.
Finally, Saturday 12/7 is the day! Pugachev’s Barrel-Aged Beer Festival has arrived for its 2nd annual appearance! The Festival will run from 11am-4pm and will feature live music, food vendors and 24 barrel-aged beers from our archives available for sampling. Guests will be able to purchase a tasting wristband for $25, granting them their choice of 8 tasting pours from among the selections. You can also take home up to 6 bottles of Pugachev’s Cobra, and we’re excited to announce an all new, super-limited Barrel Roll release: Pugachev Royale. Our Tasting Room will be operating its normal hours and offering all of its normal selections, as well.
For the full rundown on the beers and the event, you can visit www.h24pugafest.com.
We look forward to seeing you around the Tasting Room this week, we’ll all have one thought on our minds: what to taste at Pugafest? You could choose to try every vintage of a single Barrel Roll release, observing how its changed each year and with time in the bottle. This is called a vertical tastring. Or you could try a horizontal tasting, by sampling many different options from among the huge variety of different beers available like barrel-aged Warmer or a Hammerhead/Gourdgeous blend aged in Bourbon barrels.
It’s up to you, and there’s no wrong way to taste so many great beers!

Black Friday is on the horizon and we wanted to give you a rundown of the different deals and beers we’ll be offering. Our Tasting Room will be opening at 10am and celebrating the release of this year’s batch of Warmer, winner of the Specialty Beer Gold Medal at last month’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver! We’ll also be offering some brand new merchandise items as well as discounts on some current merchandise.
Let’s talk about the beer first. Warmer will be flowing on draught and available for purchase in 22oz bottles. If you’ve never had Warmer, it’s the perfect complement to the changing seasons: a lightly hopped winter ale with additions of maple syrup, cinnamon and locally harvested spruce tips from the San Bernardino mountains. In addition to this year’s gold medal win at GABF, it also received a gold medal at the 2012 World Beer Cup in the same category. We’ll also be tapping our Friday cask at 4pm, featuring our Chocolate Porter with additions of bourbon soaked cocoa nibs and tart cherry juice.
If you’re a member of our Frequent Flyer program and have achieved Bronze or above status we’re going to be opening the Warmer taps a little bit early for you. Gold level or above, we’ll be allowing you to pre-purchase our limited Warmer Glasses!
