Cinco at Cinco on Cinco
I relish any opportunity to sliderbrate.
Hardcore nerds might recognize Saturday’s date as the unofficial Star Wars Day (“May the Fourth be with you”). Hardcore beer drinkers in Los Angeles know this coming Saturday for another reason: it’s the biggest single drinking day the city has seen in a long time. With four different big name beer events going down from the Sunset Strip to Eagle Rock, it’s a veritable taster’s choice of possibilities. Here’s what’s on tap for this coming Saturday, May 4th.

If you’ve been around these parts for a stretch of time, you know my love for Katz’s knows no bounds.
I always go for counter service, never the waiters, only because that’s what my Dad always does when he goes. I suspect his Dad did too. And probably his Dad.
But I am so incredibly happy…

By now, Angelenos are intimately familiar with the growing local craft beer scene. There are longtime stalwarts like Craftsman in Pasadena who have helped to pave the way for breweries like Eagle Rock Brewery (founded in 2009) and their sometimes thought-provoking ales. But in today’s exploding market, Eagle Rock seems nearly ancient compared to the new guys like L.A. Ale Works, who are just now in the process of building their brewery, but already have a National Home Brewer’s Competition award under their belts. Now, some underserved slices of California are going to start getting a taste of our region’s finest craft beers, thanks to a rash of new distribution deals going down in the industry recently.
The first big distribution deal of 2013 came courtesy of Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, the Redlands-based operation with an aviation theme and penchant for locally-sourcing ingredients. Not long after pushing further into the San Francisco market, Hangar 24 began rolling out to Napa, Sacramento and beyond in mid-January. The market expansion is the largest of its kind for the five-year-old brewery, and will include selections from the popular Local Fields series, as well as their summery Orange Wheat and heavy Chocolate Porter. By the end of the summer, Hangar 24 intends to have their new canning line up and operational alongside their existing bottling operation, which will allow the regional-sized brewery to push into neighboring states with ease.
