Anderson Valley Brewing Company…

Anderson Valley Brewing Company was founded on December 26th, 1987 in the town of Boonville, CA.  In the beginning, they brewed out of a modest 10-barrel brewhouse located in the lower level of our original brewpub, The Buckhorn Saloon. Gleaming stainless steel vats brewed and fermented barley and other specialty grains to create outstanding ales, porters, stouts, and wheat beers that gained a cult following among fans of the growing craft beer movement. At the time, they were one of only 20 craft breweries in the country and have long been considered one of the pioneers of the craft beer industry.

By 1996, the demand for Anderson Valley's award winning ales exceeded the capacity of the 10-barrel brewery, so they started construction on a 30-barrel facility at the corner of Highways 128 and 253, just one mile down the road from the Buckhorn Saloon. By expanding the capacity and introducing a 12 ounce bottling line, they were able to double the production level to 15,000 barrels in a little over a year. Before they knew it, their growth had once again outpaced our space and capacity, so in 1998 construction began on their current three-story Bavarian-style brewhouse. The centerpieces of the brewhouse are the gleaming 100- and 85- barrel copper brew kettles rescued from two defunct German breweries during a trip to Europe in 1995. The new brewhouse went online in August of 2000.

  The Kimmie, The Yink & The Holy Gose    (ABV 4.2%)    With a bright, golden color and tight creamy head, the earthy wood undertones in the Gose develop into a light mineral aroma with a hint of lemon zest and tropical fruit.
