Hangar 24 Barrel Roll Falling Leaf is the newest addition to the brewery’s Barrel Roll Series, releasing on September 26th, 2015.
Hangar 24 Barrel Roll Falling Leaf starts as Gourdgeous Imperial Porter, that was sequestered to bourbon barrels after the 2014 release.
Each autumn we brew a fresh batch of Gourdgeous, an Imperial Porter which pays homage to our local pumpkin harvest. To create FALLING LEAF, we placed a small portion of last year’s Gourdgeous in barrels to age gracefully through another turn of the seasons. A year in our cellar has mellowed and sweetened the robust flavors of pumpkin pie spice, molasses, caramel and dark chocolate, while the single-use bourbon barrels we selected added bright layers of bourbon, oak and vanilla. Beneath these layers you’ll recognize the strong core of the base beer: 1,000 pounds of pumpkins grown just ½ a mile from our brewery. Falling Leaf is ready to drink now, or can be placed into your own cellar to continue aging gracefully.
Hangar 24 Barrel Roll Falling Leaf is a 750ml bottle offering. ONLINE sales only. Show up in person to pick up your bottles.

Hangar 24 Barrel Roll Pugachev Mocha drops on December 6th, 2014. This years release sounds like what beer geek dreams are made off. The brewery took a Russian Imperial stout, and aged in it a 25 year bourbon barrel with coffee, cocoa nibs. To smooth it all out, Hangar 24 added lactose too. Yeah, I’m drooling too.
Pugachev Mocha is a truly indulgent creation that brings together ingredients from some of our favorite local craftsmen. It began as a single barrel of our Pugachev’s Cobra, specially aged in a 25 year bourbon barrel for 14 months. Into this barrel went single-origin cacao nibs from Parliament Chocolate, and locally roasted coffee beans from Augie’s Coffee, both located here in Redlands. A head of lactose sugar tops Mocha off, adding body and sweetness for final layer of decadence.
There are less than 70 memberships left in the Barrel Roll program that guarantees you beers like this. Hangar 24 Pugachev Mocha will be available in limited 22oz bombers.
Hanger 24 Barrel Roll #5 is Chandelle, releasing on November 28th, 2014.

This is our first major sour release in over two years, and represents the first of many delicious beers that will be emerging from our new sour program in the coming months.
Hanger 24 Barrel Roll Chandelle will be available in 22oz bombers, debuting at 10 Am on Black Friday (November 28th.)
