Hangar 24 Craft Brewery to be official craft beer of Citizens Business Bank Arena

REDLANDS, California – Two of the Inland Empire’s more recognizable names are set to join forces as Hangar 24 Craft Brewery has entered into an agreement to become the “Official Craft Beer” at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario.

The partnership, which begins immediately, means Hangar 24 Craft Brewery will have a heavy presence at the 9-year-old facility that can seat over 11,000 for concerts, well over 10,000 for basketball and more than 9,000 for ice hockey. Hangar 24 Craft Brewery also is in its ninth year of operation, having celebrated that anniversary with the Hangar 24 AirFest and 9th Anniversary Celebration on May 20.

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery not only will have high visibility in multiple areas of the arena, it also will support Citizens Business Bank Arena through community events. Started in Redlands by brewmaster and amateur pilot Ben Cook, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery has grown into one of the biggest breweries not only in the Los Angeles basin, but the California, Arizona, Nevada region. With over 34,000 barrels of beer produced in 2016, Hangar 24 is among the top 26 production breweries in the entire state, according the Brewers Association.

Core offerings like Orange Wheat, Betty IPA and the new 24 Blonde Ale will be a familiar sight at Citizens Business Bank Arena, with the potential for more styles to be added.

Citizens Business Bank Arena is home to the Ontario Reign, the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, as well as the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario, a member of the NBA’s D League, and an affiliate of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers. Other events at the arena, built on the site of the former Ontario Motor Speedway, include concerts, indoor soccer, boxing, mixed martial arts and pro wrestling.
