Sour Cellars brewery in Rancho Cucamonga will celebrate its second anniversary from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday (December 29).
The event will feature special releases, including Breaking Camp, a blended sour made with black raspberries; and Damfino, a blended golden sour made with yellow nectarines, white peaches and yellow peaches.
The brewery will also have new merchandise available, as well as a limited number of beers in magnum bottles (1.5 liters).
Also, memberships in the brewery’s 2019 Curios Club are available for $250 at sourcellarsshop.com. Members will receive a case of 12 750 milliliter bottles of exclusive beers, taproom discounts, and other perks.
In addition to the beer festival, the event will kick off with a military parade from noon to 12:30 p.m., and will also feature a military vehicle display, non-profit organizations, and military-related vendor exhibits.
There will also be a living history museum folks can interview and interact with Silver Star and Purple Heart recipients, a Pearl Harbor Survivor and an Iwo Jima Veteran.
Oh, and there will be unlimited beer tastings from 40 breweries, with the vast majority of those hailing from the Inland Empire. Five homebrewers are also participating.
Access to the museum, military vehicle display, and other military-related events are free to the public.
Tickets to the beer garden — which include a commemorative pint glass — are $40 (plus a $4.28 service fee if purchased online) and must be purchased in advance.
