« on: June 04, 2019, 04:25:48 PM »
Going to be between Gualala and FortBragg for 2 weeks. Any brewery rec's. Also doing the tour at Russian River @ Windsor. Any other breweries recommended in Santa Rosa area?
Thanks
Isn't beer the holy libation of sincerity? The potion that dispels all hypocrisy, any charade of fine manners? The drink that does nothing worse than incite one to urinate in all innocence, to gain weight in all frankness?

In Fort Bragg or on the way between there and Santa Rosa:
  • North Coast Brewing in Fort Bragg
  • Overtime Brewing in Fort Bragg (small and new, I haven't been there myself)
  • Anderson Valley Brewing Co in Booneville (on Hwy 128)
Here are some in Santa Rosa, but I haven't been to any of them in person:
  • Henhouse Brewing Co in Santa Rosa
  • Old Possum Brewing Co in Santa Rosa
  • Fogbelt Brewing Co in Santa Rosa
  • Moonlight Brewing Co in Santa Rosa
  • Cooperage Brewing Co in Santa Rosa
Heading south a bit:
  • Lagunitas in Petaluma
  • Bear Republic Brewing Co in Rohnert Park
Unfortunately, Mendocino Brewing went out of business in 2018

Sorry to hear that, I didn't know.  I knew they were acquired by foreign ownership more than 20 years ago and production expanded to an upstate NY site, which was initially to my advantage, but I hadn't seen their products in some time.  They were one of the pioneers and truly one of the greats, as evidenced by their successes over the years at the Great British Beer Festival.   Red Tail and Black Hawk were early benchmarks.  But I suppose hopelessly untrendy.

I remember drinking a Red Tail in Mendocino on a trip up the coast in the early 90’s.  That beer bottle was the first in what turned out to be an extensive collection of American craft beer bottles.  Its a great label.
