What if we told you that you could go to one place and find a brewery, a tap room, a beer garden, picnic groves, pygmy goats, people who speak Boontling, AND a disc golf course? Would you say it sounds like a tidrik (that’s "party" for those of you who don't "harp Boont")? Anderson Valley Brewing Company is basically where dreams come true, because not only do they have all of that, but their beer is also really, really good.
(North Coast Brewing Company, home of Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, is another good brewery to check out, but if you only have time for one, Anderson Valley is the way to go.)
Pro tip: order a sample Boont Amber Ale along with the Boont Barl Bourbon Barrel Aged Amber to really get a sense of the subtle bourbon and oak flavors in the latter. And don’t forget to visit the goats.
