Hangar 24 Craft Brewery Named Auto Club Speedway’s “Official Craft Beer”
FONTANA, Calif. (March 11, 2014) – Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, founded on a true passion for good beer, the absolute love of flying and the pure enjoyment of being around great friends, will serve as “The Official Craft Beer” of Auto Club Speedway for 2014.
Located in nearby Redlands, Hangar 24 products as well as other craft beers, will be served on race day in the FanZone and throughout the facility during Auto Club 400 Race Weekend, March 21-23. Hangar 24 will also be available in the VONS Infield Store.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to serve our locally produced beer at such a large national event as NASCAR’s Auto Club 400,” said Ben Cook, Hangar 24 founder and Master Brewer. “When we opened in 2008, you would’ve been hard pressed to find flavorful beer at a national venue like the Auto Club Speedway. Craft beer has come a long way and we are proud to represent an industry of small brewers at such a grand event.”
“Hangar 24’s passion for their product and our fans passion for NASCAR are at the same peak level,” said Speedway President Gillian Zucker. “We’re proud to introduce and highlight a local business like Hangar 24 Craft Brewery. Our goal is to drive race fans to be passionate about the Hangar 24 brand and through this relationship to continue to grow two great Southern California brands.”
Hangar 24 Craft Brewery was founded in 2008 across from the Redlands, California airport. Widely known for their flagship beer, Orange Wheat, the brewery takes its name from the hangar in which Founder and Master Brewer Ben Cook and his fellow pilots would meet up with family and friends for a day of flying. Afterwards they would share stories, barbecue, play music and enjoy Ben’s latest batch of homebrews. Hangar 24 Craft Brewery embodies that spirit: good beer, a love of flying and the pure enjoyment of being among good friends.
