Hangar 24 Craft Brewery has graduated to the ranks of Regional Craft Brewery after brewing for less than four years.
On December 31st, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery broke the 15,000 barrel production mark and graduated from being classified as a “Microbrewery” to a “Regional Craft Brewery”. (A Regional Craft Brewery produces between 15,000 and 6,000,000 barrels of beer per year.)
The Craft Brewer’s Association recorded 1,767 Craft Breweries in the United States throughout 2010, of which only 80 reached the production levels of a Regional Craft Brewery. This statistic is a noteworthy testament to Hangar 24’s viral success especially considering that Hangar 24 has been in existence for less than 4 years with current distribution only spanning throughout Southern California.
