Brewer's Corner


Local Craft Beer, Tehachapi presents "Whiskey Galore" on St Patrick's day for a free show! On Friday, March 17, mark your calendars. It's St. Patrick's Day and Whiskey Galore is going to be playing at your local brewery. This is a special event so we will have the parking lot fenced off, food available, and we will be open extra hours, opening at noon and closing at 2 a.m. The opening act is a compilation of local boys from other local bands that have come together to create "MuleSkinner's Revival" and will go on at 7 p.m. And once it starts, the music won't stop all night long. If the weather permits we will have the roll up doors open and the music will be playing outside. If you haven't seen either of these bands play and you're a fan of music you're not going to want to miss this. And if you have seen them, then we already know you're not going to miss it!

We have two annual releases on tap at the brewery, "Make love in red bottoms" red double IPA and "Hop Drizzle" IPA. This is the hoppiest beer I make. I brew this beer for the invitation-only LA IPA Fest. This is a competition for IPAs under 8% and, in their words, they "invite the 60 best IPA breweries in the state to compete against each other for the crown". Last year we were in the top five of sales for the event and are looking to take home some hardware this year. Last year in the final rounds we were up against Highland Park, Knee-Deep, Stone Brewing, and Pliney the Elder.

Coming soon will be extremely limited bottle releases, so watch our Facebook page or Instagram account for these dates. The next two releases will be "Cali Cloud" a cloudy West Coast IPA and "The Haze is Real" NE DIPA. Both hopped with superstars such as Nelson and galaxy. Also we're still working with local coffee roasters "Blue Oak Coffee Roasting" for our imperial coffee stout and have one last keg of our "Dionysus Brewing" collaboration Blueberry Gose.

Last but not least, there's still some time to get into our raffle fundraiser that benefits the Wounded Heroes Fund. The raffle is for a locally made custom metal American flag and 100% of the raffle money goes to the charity. This is all organized by the Country Crush Arm Wrestling Club of Tehachapi.
