Bootlegger’s Brewery 6th Anniversary Party – April 26, 2014
(Fullerton,CA) – Well before officially delivering the very first keg of Bootlegger’s beer in April of 2008, Aaron Barkenhagen parlayed an entrepreneurial background with a passion for homebrewing and began going to work. The result was a seven-barrel brewhouse in the industrial area of Fullerton, the very first in the city. Anchored by the company’s unofficial credo, “Drink Fresh, Drink Local” Barkenhagen’s artisan approach to churning out meticulously crafted beer soon struck a chord among local businesses.
