Saddle up to the copper-topped bar in the Tap Room and order a few of the solar-powered brews from this microbrewery's selection. The Boont Amber is the staple, but surprise yourself with the seasonal brews of Winter and Summer Solstice or a Wild-Turkey Bourbon-barrel brew. Pours are 5 ounces and start at $2 each. Fill a tray with a few samples and sit outside in the adjoining beer garden.
The Anderson Valley Brewing Company is right off of highway 128, which is the route from the 101 to the Mendocino Coast. There are picnic tables to enjoy a picnic, but no food is served at the tasting room.
