Pouring a Pint

Want to learn fun facts, juicy stories, industry insider information and tasting notes about the beer you’re drinking? Are you an experienced home brewer or zymurgist (fermentation scientist), or are you just curious about how various styles of beer are brewed? Perhaps you’d like to know more about hops, which used to be a staple crop here in Sonoma and are now making a comeback.

Our brewery tours are fun, insightful and memory making.
