Grapes have played a tremendous role in human history—many members of the Hapsburg dynasty were at least half-grape—and they tended to do their best work at vineyards. Today's Groupon treats you to one of the San Diego region's better graperies with $75 worth of gourmet cuisine and drinks at Callaway Vineyard and Winery's Meritage in Temecula for $35. You'll also get 10% off everything at Callaway's wine store (just print your Groupon twice to use it once in the restaurant and once in the store). You may use one Groupon for every two people at your table, so you, your identical twin, and your identical twin dates can all enjoy a night of wacky mismatches and delicious food.

When Andy, Brad, and Ed decided that they wanted to start their own brewery, many of the pieces were already in place. Andy and Brad had been home brewing for years, their experiments in alcoholic alchemy resulting in such special recipes as White Chocolate Raspberry Stout and S'mores Porter. Ed had a background in business and a love for craft beer himself. What the team didn't have, however, was money. Since loans were hard to come by due to the economy, the three raised the cash in the only way they knew how: a swap meet. Dan Marino collectibles, sports cards, and even a massage table were sold to the bargain hunters, and the three got the cash they needed to start their brewery.

Though Brew Rebellion's origins are humble, the beers are not. Brewed in batches of only thirty to fifty gallons at a time, the menu is always populated with new, fresh creations. Though mainstays such as the Peach Honey Wheat are typically available, the chalkboard's erasers are choked with the wiped-away remnants of limited-time offerings. Local ingredients go into the beer whenever they're available, sometimes even including jalapenos picked from the brewer's own garden.

After an afternoon of flying, Ben Cook looked forward to meeting his fellow pilots in hangar 24 at the Redlands Municipal Airport and swapping stories, listening to music, and sharing a few bottles of his latest homebrewed beer. These afternoons served as the inspiration for Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, which Ben founded directly across from the airport as a place where friends could unwind and enjoy a few pints of locally inspired microbrews.

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery on...

  • Its most popular beers: It's a tossup between Orange Wheat, the American-style wheat beer with pur?ed, locally grown oranges added throughout the brewing process and the bold, hoppy Double IPA, which features locally sourced orange blossom honey and four varieties of American hops
  • The importance of using locally sourced ingredients: Hangar 24 Craft Brewery describes its method as farm to foam. This means that the staff seeks out ingredients from regional producers whenever possible, such as the oranges it gets from Inland Orange Conservancy, a nonprofit co-op for local farmers. The brewery obtains its dates from Coachella Valley, spruce from the San Bernardino Mountains, pumpkins from Redlands, red wine grapes from Temecula, and apricots from the High Desert.
  • Its special events: Live musicians perform every Wednesday evening, and the brewery hosts trivia nights on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Every Friday, the staff also taps a new cask-conditioned release.

The Beer Selection

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery offers seven staples year-round?including the Orange Wheat and Double IPA?although it regularly updates its tap list as new brews become available. This list can feature seasonally inspired creations, selections from the Local Fields series of beers brewed with locally sourced ingredients, and limited-edition, barrel-aged releases. Not content to limit the focus of their selection, the brewers craft everything from German-style lagers and Belgian-style dubbels to family-friendly, non-alcoholic root beer and ginger beer.
