Last year we stumbled upon Anderson Valley Bewing Company’s tasting room (and disc golf course, no shit) along the route, cool! The route also finishes at Bear Republic, cool! But we heard last time that we had missed Mendocino Bewing Company’s ale house , dammit!
So this year we decided to make it our triple/double brevet (3 breweries/2 hundred kilometers). I found this sweet skull:
And we stopped and drank beers along the way:
But at the finish, drinking some fine Bear Republic brews, Bob told us that we missed two breweries! Ukiah Brewing Co. and Ruth McGowan’s were right along the route too! Next year it’s on, we’re doing all five in one brevet.
But maybe we should “test ride” it over the course of a multi-day tour starting from SF? We could include quite a few more breweries and beer bars along the way (Russian River, 3rd Street, Lagunitas, Mill Valley, Iron Springs, Marin, Mt. St. Helena, Barley & Hops), not to mention hot springs & lakes to swim in. Yes.
The hot tub at the America’s Best Value Inn was cold because we didn’t ask for it to be hot in advance, and there was a channel on the TV that just congratulated us on owning a sweet satellite dish.
