Year Round


hangar-24-orange-wheat

 

Hangar 24 Orange Wheat

Crisp, Tangy, and Refreshing. The citrus aroma, light airy mouthfeel, and tangy finish are this unfiltered beer’s trademarks. This is accomplished by adding whole locally grown oranges throughout the brewing process, which perfectly coalesce with the wheat and barley base.

hangar-24-betty-ipa-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Betty IPA

Betty is an American IPA boasting a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops. We spent 8 months perfecting this hop blend, and we love the huge range of juicy aromas and flavors we were able to hit: tropical fruit, citrus zest, berries, stone fruit and pine are all packed in, soaring over a base of pleasantly bitter 68 IBUs and drinkable 6.5% ABV. She pours a hazy orange-gold with a white frothy head, and marks the first addition to our Year-Round lineup of beers since Double IPA debuted in 2010.

With Betty our goal was to brew the modern, American IPA that we’d want to drink ourselves, every day. If you ever had a pint of Experimental IPA in our Tasting Room, you were helping us build this beer, ever since we put the first batch on tap in May of 2013 at our Airfest and 5th Anniversary Celebration. We used that feedback from our fans and employees to help shape Betty.

The beer’s name pays homage to the pin-up art that adorned the planes of American B17 pilots during World War 2. These pilots would commission these fantastic works of art on the noses of their planes, and it serve as a daily reminder of the home they were fighting to protect.

hangar-24-alt-bier-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Alt-Bier Amber Ale

Caramel, Toasty, and Clean. This red ale is our unique version of a northern German Alt-Bier. Enjoy silky caramel smoothness, followed by toasty, bready flavors and finished with a hint of chocolate roast. These flavors all come through in the aroma and combine in a truly unique, very clean, complex, Alt-Bier.

Our Alt-Bier is very traditional except for one twist, chocolate roasted malt. We decided to add the chocolate malt to add a little more complexity to the beer and for a perceived dryness that helps to balance the caramel malty flavor.

hangar-24-chocolate-porter-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Chocolate Porter

Rich and decadent. This strong porter is perfect for sipping at the end of the day or to accompany full-flavored foods. The intense, roasty flavor comes from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. Whole vanilla beans introduced post fermentation add complexity and enhance the dessert-like qualities of this full bodied beer. Indulge yourself!

This beer began life as our Panamanian Porter with the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and banana. A truly unique beer, we felt that all those flavors needed some smoothing out so we changed yeast strains and eliminated the banana flavor (Which came from the yeast strain). The Panamanian Porter did have many fans however, and there may be plans in the future to bring it back for a special occasion. Stay tuned…

hangar-24-double-ipa-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Double IPA

Assertive and drinkable. Double IPA is California’s gift to beer lovers. Ours is brewed with four distinctly American hops: Centennial, Citra, Columbus and Simcoe, all beautifully balanced by five malts and generous additions of local orange blossom honey. An intense sensory experience — the fresh aroma of citrus, pine and grapefruit with the bold taste of hops and sweet honey.

This beer was first brewed to celebrate American Craft Beer Week in 2010. The Double IPA style is distinctly American, and so are the flavors of the specific hops used. This beer was an instant hit. Southern Californians do love their hops!

Hangar 24 California Spring Beer

Renew your taste buds for Spring with our California Spring Beer, a dry-hopped wheat ale designed to help refresh your palate after a winter of darker beers.

hangar-24-belgian-summer-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Belgian Summer Ale

Summer is here! We use a unique souring process to give our Belgian Summer Ale a complex, refreshing tartness that’s perfect for the arrival of warmer days. Aromas of clove, pineapple, and bubblegum pair with flavors of spicy Belgian yeast, hints of pear and nutmeg, and the signature tart finish. It’s the perfect brew for those summer days on the beach or in the backyard.

hangar-24-oktoberfest-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Oktoberfest Fall Lager

Our fall seasonal is an ode to the brewing traditions of Germany. This amber lager is brewed in true Reinheitsgebot fashion using the finest imported German Malt, German Hops and German Yeast. Incredibly clean and balanced, this lager has a wonderful malty backbone and a hint of earthy hops. Traditionally released in early fall, this beer will make you want to stand up and sing “Ein Prosit!”

The Oktoberfest in Munich started in 1810 as a celebration of the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. The festival was such a hit that it turned into an annual event celebrated for 16 days from late September to early October. Oktoberfest beer comes from the Marzen style. These beers were bigger, richer beers brewed in March and stored in caves during the hot months of summer. In the fall, they were enjoyed at the Oktoberfest celebration.

Local Fields Series


hangar-24-vinaceous-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Vinaceous

The first beer in our Local Fields Series, Vinaceous was created to combine the best characteristics of wine and beer. Brewed in the style of an English Old Ale, this beer deviates from tradition with an ample addition of freshly crushed Red Wine grapes from Temecula. Vinaceous pours a deep burgundy color and boasts flavors of rich malt, brown sugar, dark berries and a touch of oak in the finish.

As with each beer in our Local Fields Series, we looked to local growers for inspiration. For Vinaceous, we obtained some Red Wine grapes from our friends at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula. Wilson Creek has been producing outstanding wines in Southern California since 1996. We anticipate that this joint venture will further demonstrate the exceptional qualities of artisan wine and craft beer and how they can work harmoniously together.

hangar-24-palmero-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Palmero

For our second Local Fields Series offering we looked to match a Belgian classic with the sweetness of Southern California Dates. Palmero is a traditional Abbey Dubbel with a healthy addition of dates from the Coachella Valley. Fruity esters from the Belgian yeast strain combine with a delicate date sweetness. This beer is full of flavors of caramel, raisin, rum and spice.

“Palmero” refers to the title of a person that tends date palms.
We felt this was a natural name for a beer brewed with Coachella Valley dates. The Coachella Valley is home to roughly 95% of all dates grown in the US. Palmero (the beer) was designed to show off the wonderful complex flavor of Southern California Dates.

hangar-24-essence-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Essence

This beer is the essence of Southern California. A traditional west coast IPA with a distinct copper hue, enhanced by generous additions of navel oranges, sweet blood oranges and grapefruit, all grown in Redlands, CA. The citrus flavors and aromas intensify the zesty cascade and zythos hops to deliver a one-of-a-kind drinking experience. An invigorating beer with a pleasant, defining bitterness, perfect for warm weather.

This beer not only represents the essence of Southern California but also represents the “Essence” of Hangar 24 Craft Brewery and how combining citrus with beer has fueled our success. We source the best fruits from the top farms in the Redlands area to bring you this one of a kind drinking experience.

hangar-24-polycot-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Polycot

Polycot is a wheat beer brewed with hundreds of pounds of organic apricots grown in Southern California. We brew this beer during the very small window of time when the apricots are at their peak of freshness, usually early July. The pureed apricots add a wonderful fruit flavor to the beer and combine with the wheat for a refreshing tart finish.

The name Polycot (Poly=Many cot=Apricot) is a modification of the original name Paulycot. Paul-yicot was named for owner Ben Cook’s friend Paul who provided the apricots for the initial batch. Hangar 24 would also like to acknowledge and thank the many volunteers who spend hours pitting (and de-stickering) thousands of apricots for the brew. We couldn’t make this wonderful beer without you!

hangar-24-gourdgeous-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Gourdgeous

It’s time to usher in autumn with this robust porter. Using pumpkins grown just a half mile from the brewery, Gourdgeous also features traditional pumpkin pie spices and molasses. Rich with notes of dark chocolate, pumpkin pie, and sweet caramel, it’s the perfect pour for when the days get shorter.

The pumpkins used in this brew were grown at Larry Jacinto Farms right down the street from the brewery. We were very excited when Larry told us that he had a great crop of pumpkins growing literally ½ mile from the brewery. We had a fantastic team of volunteers who came to the brewery to help us seed and cut over 1,000 pounds of pumpkins and then we teamed up with Q-Works BBQ Catering who brought in big ovens so we could roast the pumpkins right here on site. This Local Fields beer was a true community effort!

hangar-24-warmer-bottle

 

Hangar 24 Warmer

This rich, strong ale neatly balances caramel malts and spices, providing warmth on a cool winter day. Every fall, we trek up the San Bernardino Mountains to harvest fresh spruce, then carefully add just the right amount of cinnamon and maple syrup to create our Warmer. It’s a lightly hopped, tantalizing ale with festive notes of maple, spruce and spice; a nice complement to a cooler time of year.

This beer was first produced in December of 2009 and the response was so good that we’ve decided to brew it each winter!

hangar-24-pugachevs-cobra-bottle

 

Barrel Roll No. 3 – Pugachev’s Cobra

Get ready for an assault on your senses with PUGACHEV’S COBRA, an intense Russian Imperial Stout. This rich, black beauty with a thick caramel head is bursting with aromas of chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, licorice and dark fruits, while flavors of chocolate-covered plum, sweet malt, bourbon, and roasted coffee explode on your palate. This is no ordinary beer; three different dark roasted malts and rich maple syrup are combined in a truly unique brewing process to create complexity and depth. Once fermented, it’s then aged for eight months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. This powerful concoction is designed to be enjoyed now with friends or cellared to perfection and savored in the years to come.

hangar-24-hammerhead-bottle

 

Barrel Roll No. 4 – Hammerhead

A well executed HAMMERHEAD is smooth and dramatic. This beer is no exception. Hammerhead is a big, complex, American-style Barleywine featuring two English caramel malts and four American hops. Hammerhead’s character is enhanced by dry hopping and then aging the deep amber liquid for six months in charred oak rye whiskey and bourbon barrels. Spicy aromas spill from the glass: rich caramel, citrusy hops, bourbon and oak. Layered flavors of toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, spice and rye whiskey lead to a warm and slightly bitter finish. This is a strong ale, meant to be sipped, savored and enjoyed.

Hammerhead: A ¼ loop to vertical, airspeed decreases and plane appears to stall. Nose then rotates and plane descends on vertical down line and out with ¼ loop.

hangar-24-falling-leaf-bottle

 

Barrel Roll No. 8 – Falling Leaf

Each autumn we brew a fresh batch of Gourdgeous, an Imperial Porter which pays homage to our local pumpkin harvest. To create FALLING LEAF, we placed a small portion of last year’s Gourdgeous in barrels to age gracefully through another turn of the seasons. A year in our cellar has mellowed and sweetened the robust flavors of pumpkin pie spice, molasses, caramel and dark chocolate, while the single-use bourbon barrels we selected lift the beer back up, adding bright layers of bourbon, oak and vanilla. Beneath these layers you’ll recognize the strong core of the base beer: 1,000 pounds of pumpkins grown just ½ a mile from our brewery. Falling Leaf is ready to drink now, or can be placed into your own cellar to continue aging gracefully.

Additional Information:

FALLING LEAF: The pilot brings the airplane into a stall, then works the rudder to slip back and forth from right to left while holding the nose forward.

Anniversary Ales


hangar-24-saison

 

Hangar 24 6th Anniversary Farmhouse Saison

Spicy, light and fruity. Our Farmhouse Saison balances the traditional spiciness of Saaz hops with the fresh fruit aromas of El Dorado, putting a twist on a French classic. French yeast lets the hops shine over a light but surprisingly silky body. For our label we turned to our community- the art on this bottle comes from Chris Hernandez, the winner of our 6th Anniversary Label Design Contest.
