Hangar 24 Brewery in Redlands has plenty of reason to celebrate. First, the five year old brewery achieved regional craft brew status last year, which means they've topped the 50,000 barrels per year output. Second, they're rapidly expanding into Northern California, with an eye on Arizona next. And to support all of that expansion, they've blown out their brewing space across from the airport by about 25%. That's a lot of production.

And what better way to recognize it all than with an air show! The first ever AirFest will be taking over the Redlands Municipal Airport across the street from Hangar 24 Brewing, and there will be aerial acts, live bands, tons of food and even more beer on hand. It's going to be a family-friendly event with plenty of rare beers coming up from the cellars, plus more than a few surprises to help send American Craft Beer Week off with a bang.
