ANDERSON VALLEY BREWING CO.
Anderson Valley Brewing Company was founded on December 26th, 1987 in the town of Boonville, CA. In the beginning, we brewed out a modest 10-barrel brewhouse located in the lower level of our brewpub, The Buckhorn Saloon. At the time, we 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 our award winning ales exceeded the capacity of our 10-barrel brewery, so we started construction on our current facility at the corner of HWYs 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, our 26-acre property houses a 100-barrel brewhouse, tasting room, beer garden, and is home to the first 18-hole disc golf course ever built at a brewery.
For over 25 years, Anderson Valley Brewing Co. has been hand-crafting authentic ales and lagers with balance and complexity and a passion for sustainable brewing practices. Our large solar panel array provides over 40% of our electrical needs, while 100% of our waste water is treated and used for the irrigation of our goat pastures and estate hop fields. In addition, our spent grain is given to local cows and spent hops are used as a natural fertilizer.
We here at Anderson Valley Brewing Company enjoy living in our idyllic corner of the world, and love to share our great beers. With our own well water, proprietary yeast, and award-winning recipes, beer this balanced and complex could only come from Anderson Valley.
