Anderson Valley

17700 Highway 253, Boonville, CA, 95415

Set in Mendocino County’s picturesque Anderson Valley, this solar-powered brewery mixes local and international styles and techniques. Some beer names are those of local landmarks, others are in Boontling, a regional dialect.

Brewing secret

The copper brew kettles were rescued from a closed-down German brewery.

Boont ESB

beer style: Extra Special Bitter
alcohol content: 6.8% ABV

Citrussy hops layer fruit on top of bready malt. Tangy in the middle; a long and mildly bitter finish.

Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout

Impression of coffee and cream, sweetness balanced by roasted grains, the complexity heightened by earthy undertones.
