Hangar 24 Craft Brewery Unifies Critical Operation with VicinityBrew

Redlands, California based craft brewery implements VicinityBrew Craft Brewery software.

Marietta, GA, March 20, 2014 --(PR.com)-- VicinityBrew® is pleased to announce their newest craft brewing client, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery. After evaluating various Brewery ERP solutions, Hangar 24 elected VicinityBrew to fulfill their Brewery specific financial and production software needs.

Hangar 24, located in Redlands, California, ignited when Ben Cook, Founder and Master Brewer, decided to pursue his passion of beer and transform his hobby into a well-organized business opportunity.

In the thriving craft beer industry, Hangar 24 has quickly become a rising star. In 2013, they celebrated their 5th anniversary and took home their first Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Gold Medal for Warmer, their Winter Local Fields Beer. They have resolved to maintain this level of excellence by selecting VicinityBrew with Microsoft Dynamics®.

Joe Savage, Production Manager at Hanger 24 sums it up by saying, “One of our goals is to transition from brewing as much beer as we can to leaner production, closer to a brewed to order approach of production using just in time manufacturing principals. By gaining visibility across sales, inventory and packaging we will be able to better track raw materials moving through the brewery and work toward those goals.”

Mr. Savage continues by saying, “VicinityBrew's adaptability to meet the needs of our particular brewery was one of the things that made the solution stand out among the rest. In looking to the future, our investment in VicinityBrew provides the opportunity to delve deeper into our production as we grow and bring on levels of sophistication as needed.”

VicinityBrew addresses key issues such as finance, production, and excise tax, TTB reporting, scheduling, and quality. The tools within VicinityBrew software for brewing allows Hangar 24 to focus on making great beer while allowing for continuous growth. Thus, enabling further production and financial needs in the expanding market.

Vicinity Manufacturing is a proud member of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild and the American Brewers Association, and the company will be traveling to Denver, Colorado April 7th to 11th to Exhibit at the 2014 Craft Brewer’s Conference (CBC) in Booth #1521.

About Hangar 24:
Hangar 24 Craft Brewery began with a true passion for good beer, an absolute love of flying, and a pure enjoyment of being around great friends. After an afternoon of flying, Founder and Master Brewer Ben Cook and his buddies used to meet at Hangar 24 to trade stories, talk aviation, play music, and share cold ones, which Ben just finished brewing at home. Today, the location of where these fine beers are brewed may have altered, but the quality time spent enjoying a delicious, handcrafted beer and conversation with friends remains the same.
