Beer drinker in Sonoma/Napa

My husband and I will be staying at Duchamp Hotel in Healdsburg for 2 nights and plan to visit wineries in Sonoma and Napa. Are there any wineries that serve beer as well? My husband is an Irishman and his drink of choice is definitely beer. He's not complaining about going with me from one winery to another, but I'd love to find a venue that serves beer as well.

Someone from that area may be along but you might post on Sonoma and/or Napa boards. Something tells me that the liquor license that wineries have might limit what they can serve. But I think there are some artisan breweries in the area that you might consider visiting. (I'm a wino myself so can't suggest anything.)

Moon Wineries don't have Craft breweries inside, she's asking for the combo. Maybeshe can find a wine bar in Healdsburg that also serves beer.

If you want to take a break from the wineries, there are some great breweries in the Sonoma area. Try Bear Republic Brewery right in downtown Healdsburg. You could also travel a short distance to Russian River Brewery in Santa Rosa or Lagunitas in Petaluma. All have great beers and tasty pub grub.

Check out Napa Point Brewing Company, which is just outside of Napa. They have two different labels and he might enjoy doing the tasting flights of each. Or if do happen to pass through Petaluma, the Lagunitas suggestion is a good one.

Wineries generally don't produce beer. Yeast contamination would be a real threat. However, there is one lady who is attempting to do just that in an urban winery near downtown Napa. The brewery and restaurant haven't opened yet but they may be open by the time of your visit.


One winery that does serve beer is the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville. They have a bar and restaurant and serve draft beer out at their pool bar.
