If ever you find yourself on the road to Palm Springs, take a minute to stop by this brewery.

The wife will love it - it's a tricked out tasting room in a hanger - very clean, neatly set up, open and spacy with an outdoor sitting area, vats roped off in the back. Interesting turn on the usual tasting room in a warehouse concept.

I was there for their Polycot release, which was very crowded but fun (only negative was their cake, which nicely baked in the shape of a hanger with two bi-planes, but the worst, dry sugary confection I've ever stuck in my mouth).

Happily, the beer was better. I tried the Chocolate Porter, which had a distinct chocolate-coffee flavor. Medium body, no sludge overkill. Very good brew. Nicely priced at $5/pint. Several beers on their list were $4 pint, including their wheat and pale ale offerings. The IPA and DIPA were $5/pint. A flight of all their tap offerings (7 on that day) is $5.50.

The place is located just off a small road behind the Redlands airport. It's easy to miss if you're not paying attention to your directions. Once you see neon signs in the distant and hear the sound of guitar rifts getting louder, you'll know you've arrived at Hangar 24. As a satisfying answer to my curiosity and potentially yours, yes, this place is literally inside of an aircraft hangar. For how they got the 24 however, I'm still trying to figure that out.

There's a few dirt lots to park in surrounding the area. I chose to park on the side of the road a bit closer to the brewery. After a short walk, I had arrived. The entrance to the tasting room was wide open, similar to the entrance of a hangar. Duh.

Once inside, I was greeted by some really cool, unexpected vibes. The brewery has a refurbished, almost industrial look to it. Remodled with brewing addorments and equipments gives it a nice, simplistic aesthetic. The tasting room was small. After a short line, you order your ale of choice and basically find a spot to post up at. Noticed that a lot of people were bringing their dogs into the tasting room. I love dogs myself, so this wasn't a problem, but word of warning to anyone who would otherwise mind a pooch presence. There is an outdoor patio on the other side of the tasting room with live music performances and tvs playing sports, which only adds to the brewery's vibe.

Quality overall was great. The brewery was very clean, and despite how busy it was, plenty of space presented itself to post up and relax at. The only thing I would point out is the lack of real restrooms aside from two portojohns outside of the tasting room. Maybe I mistakenly missed other indoor restrooms, but from my recolection there were none.

Service was ok. Walked up to the taps, ordered my flight and a pint. Nothing more, nothing less.

Selection was decent as well. All of their regular beers were on tap, ready for pints and flight assortments. Lots of speciality and seasonal varieities were provided as well. Their regular taps tended to be more on the IPA side, but hey, I don't have a problem with that at all.

Quality beers all in all, in a quality place.

The vibe at Hangar 24 is more than laid back. There's the obvious taps and beertenders that give you beers and there is a community style long table that looks like it could seat 80 people easily. It gets a bit crowded on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday during the late afternoon/night but it isn't a hassle to get a brew during peak hours. Their selection of beer is pretty nice and they have seasonal beers that rotate often enough along with variations of their flagship beers. Some of their other brews are just okay but their good brews are damn good. I come here often enough, solid brewery.
