Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Anderson Valley Brewing Company was founded on December 26th, 1987 in the town of Boonville, CA. In the beginning, we brewed out of a modest 10-barrel brewhouse located in the lower level of our original 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. Over the years, we have also expanded our barrel-aging program to include a variety of wine barrel-aged sour beers. The aromas and flavor profiles of these unique offerings vary greatly due to the extensive aging process and the nature of the bacteria, wild yeasts, and brettanomyces found in the barrels. Ranging from golden, slightly tart ales such as our Horse Tongue Wheat to the dark, rich and woody Gatlin Damnosus Sour Barleywine, we continue to innovate and push the envelope of barrel-aging to explore new flavors and create world-class sour beers with complexity and balance.
