Hanger 24 has no intentions of cooling its jets. The southern California craft brewery (which combines a love of aviation and awesome beer) has just embarked on its largest single distribution expansion, going to the San Francisco Bay area, with hopes of rolling into additional markets throughout 2013. Hangar 24 Craft Brewery will launch its (air?) craft beer in the San Francisco Bay area starting Jan. 15. The initial release will include Orange Wheat, Alt-Bier Ale,Chocolate Porter and Double IPA along with its seasonal offerings and its Local Fields Series.
Alongside the distribution expansion, the craft brewery is making a larger splash by sponsoring the 2013 SF Beer Week.
“We pride ourselves in creating a craft beer that uses ingredients grown close to the brewery,” said Hangar 24 Craft Brewery’s founder and master brewer Ben Cook. “The Bay Area is our single largest expansion to date and we look forward to serving this culinary rich market and social drinking scene.”

The event draws beer lovers from around the country and Hangar 24 plans to participate in several events throughout the Bay Area including the opening gala and closing ceremony.
“We are thrilled to be a contributing member to SF Beer Week and beyond the amazing exposure we can’t wait to cheers the Bay Area,” said Cook.
