California is known for its wine. There are vacation packages, tours, movies, and more all designed around wine. And with the relatively new influx of craft breweries in the country, beer lovers are signing up now for their turn to have a beer-centric vacation. Here at Sea Rock Inn, we love supporting our local Mendocino breweries and enjoy pointing them out to our guests. There are many amazing Mendocino breweries to choose from, but we wanted to highlight four to share with you. These amazing Mendocino breweries have a brilliant variety of interesting flavors that you will love!
Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Next up in our tour of Mendocino breweries is one that also has been around for almost 30 years, Anderson Valley Brewing Company. This brewery is located out of Boonville, California. One thing that sets this brewery apart from other Mendocino breweries is its environmental commitment. There are several smart and sustainable environmental practices in place not only for the company’s brewing process but for its product as well. The distribution of Anderson Valley beer is far and wide. So, after you enjoy a taste in the taproom, it should be fairly easy to find your favorite in a local shop. Be sure to take note of Anderson Valley Brewing Co.’s seasonal beers as well as year-round classics.
North Coast Brewing Company
Next on our tour of Mendocino breweries is North Coast Brewing Company in Fort Bragg. Over the years, North Coast has continually released amazing beers. You can also enjoy a scrumptious meal along with your brew. Make your own pizza or enjoy a variety of signature entrees and daily lunch specials. We highly suggest a stop here not only to try some craft beer and pub grub but also to enjoy a night in the Sequoia Room, where jazz artists are regularly featured.
Tall Guy Brewing
Tall Guy Brewing is located in Fort Bragg and is open seven days a week. This new local spot offers a rotating beer menu, weekly events, and a casual atmosphere to mingle with friends. Enjoy classic porters, Mexican-style lagers, hazy IPAs, hard seltzers, and more from the tap.
Another new option to the Mendocino coast, Overtime Brewing “serves small-batch ales in a cozy, casual environment”. Taps are open Tuesday through Sunday, and food is offered Tuesday through Saturday. Dogs are welcome on the patio.
Other Ways to Enjoy Mendocino Beer
Besides these fabulous local Mendocino breweries, the next best way to enjoy fresh local beer and wine is at some of the area’s top restaurants. From Italian, Irish, and Coastal, to Vegetarian, Organic and everything in between, our favorite restaurants serve up some of the freshest cuisine in the country.
