No Patience For Pliny? Hangar Unleashing Its Rare Pugachev Cobra at Tony's Darts Away

Pugachev's Cobra, from Hangar 24 in Redlands

Pliny the Younger season is almost upon us again. But if you can't wait for the day or just don't posses the sea legs to stand in a line for the privilege to sip an extolled, once-a-year brew, you may want to check in with Tony's Darts Away this Tuesday. That night, the Burbank beer bar is opening its arms to Redland's esteemed aviation-themed Hangar 24, which will take command of seven taps until closing. In addition to its readily available Orange Wheat, Chocolate Porter, and Alt Bier, the beer-maker will also have kegs of its rare Pugachev's Cobra. Named for an acrobatic aviation stunt that is itself dubbed after an18th-century Cossack invader, an eight-month bourbon barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout that comes in at 16.5% ABV and only rears its end in limited quantities every winter. Opening at 5:00 P.M. that evening, Tony's will offer Hangar's beers at $5.50-6.50 per glass, as well as flights of the ales.
