Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Anderson Valley Brewing Company was founded on December 26th, 1987 in the town of Boonville, CA. Back then, they were brewing out of a modest 10-barrel brewhouse located in the lower level of their original brewpub, The Buckhorn Saloon. By 1996, the demand for Anderson Valley's award winning ales exceeded that capacity, so they started construction on a new home: their current facility at the corner of Highways 128 and 253, just one mile down the road from The Buckhorn Saloon. Surrounded by rolling hills peppered with century-old oaks to the west and towering redwood forests to the east, the 26-acre Anderson Valley property is home to a 100-barrel brewhouse, tasting room, beer garden, and the first 18-hole disc golf course ever to be built at a brewery. For over 25 years, Anderson Valley Brewing Company has been hand-crafting authentic ales and lagers with balance and complexity and a passion for sustainable brewing practices. They use a large solar panel array provides over 40% of electrical needs, and 100% of their waste water is treated and used for the irrigation of their goat pastures and estate hop fields. In addition, spent grain from the brewing process is given to local cows and spent hops are used as a natural fertilizer.
