I received a press release today and thought I’d just re-post it here:
REDLANDS, CALIF. – Nov. 1, 2012 – Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, one of the top 100 craft brewers in the country, has expanded its California footprint to now include Northern Los Angeles and Ventura Counties and its famed Central Coast.

About Hangar 24
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. Owner and master Brewer Ben Cook and his buddies used to meet at Hangar 24 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 where these fine beers are brewed has changed, but the quality time spent enjoying a delicious, handcrafted beer and conversation is the same as ever. Hangar 24 Craft Brewery employs more than 50 team members and its distribution is now spanned throughout Southern California with its addition of another company, Hangar 24 Craft Distribution. Its annual capacity now stands at approximately 40,000 and its Brewery and Distribution Center together employ nearly 100 people.
