New in Covina & Rancho Cucamonga

Looks like the greater L.A. craft beer map is filling in a little more.

Out in Covina, Arrow Lodge Brewing (formerly Barley Lodge) is up and going….

Beers that seem to be getting name checked most are the Pale To the King, Happy Cal Milk Stout Stout and the intriguing Lavender Vanilla Cream Ale

Next up is Sour Cellars, way out in Rancho Cucamonga. Still not as far as Hangar 24 though.

The all sour brewery opened up just as 2016 ticked away for good. They are “specializing in newly isolated wild yeast strains.” Maybe a Cucamonga Quake Coolship is in the future.

Hamilton Brewery


The craft beer scene is Los Angeles keeps spreading outward like brett.  And, “this Saturday, June 21 marks a historic event when Hamilton Family Brewery opens its doors to the public and becomes Rancho Cucamonga’s first craft brewery.  The grand opening will be from 11 AM – 10 PM at the 1,600 square foot brewery and tasting room located on the southeast corner of Archibald and Seventh Street in the Scheu Business Center.

The Hamiltons will have six year around offerings of diverse styles from hop-forward beers to easy drinkers.  They will also brew various seasonal and experimental beers and are committed to using top quality, all-natural ingredients with no extracts.

The tasting room showcases a true family effort with relatives and friends who all pitched in to help build and decorate.  The art on the walls, drawn by Brewmaster Josh, capture Rancho Cucamonga’s rich history as it brings nostalgia with their vintage style.

Hamilton Family Brewery’s tasting room will be open Thursdays from 4 PM – 9 PM, Fridays from 4 PM – 10 PM, and Saturdays from 2 PM – 10 PM.”

Now you have another place to stop when heading to Vegas or Hangar 24!
