Our tours are scheduled on a by-weekly basis to help you experience the best of what the North Bay has to offer. We will choose 3 to 4 wonderful breweries for you to experience. They will almost always include 2 lesser known craft breweries and 2 very well known breweries. Below you can see a list of some of the breweries that we visit. Please take a minute to explore them on the map above.
This brewery is at the top of this list for a reason. Plow Brewing has in our opinion some of the best beers around. Top that off with an excellent tour and talk from the brewer himself and you wont be disappointed that we stopped here. Plow Brewing opened their doors in 2015 and has become a favorite stop for locals and beer lovers.
Lagunitas is situated in Petaluma right off the freeway. They sport a great selection of famous hand crafted beers. Their tap room is a busy happening spot with most of their beers on tap, live music, outdoor seating, food, and tours. This is a popular priority destination.
Located in the heart of Santa Rosa, The Russian River Brewery has become famous world wide for their award winning beers. Their friendly staff, delicious food, and of course a wide selection of micro brews make them a popular destination.
Barrel Brothers Brewing Company is a production brewery located in the Town of Windsor, in beautiful Sonoma County, CA. Founded by brothers-in-law, Wesley Deal and Daniel Weber, and their father-in-law, Tom Sather in 2015, Barrel Brothers Brewing Company is built on the simple principle that if you make good beer, and make people happy in the process, the rest will figure itself out. They are a company inspired by the talented and innovative brewers who forged the path for Sonoma County to be known as one of the country’s epicenters of world class, style defining beers.
Another very good brewery in downtown Santa Rosa, Third Street Ale works has made a name for themselves with their award winning craft beers. You will enjoy loft style seating, pool, darts, pub games, and Superior outdoor seating.
Bear Republic is located in downtown Healdsburg. It is another brewery that not only has some very popular beers such as Racer 5, Red Rocket Ale and Double Aught but also some of the best pub food around. They almost always pack a full house and have a very happening crowd. Let us take the hassle away and reserve a spot for you.
Dempsey’s Located on the river in Petaluma Ca is one one of oldest breweries around. They have an excellent selection of beer and great food.
Feel like wine country but not the wine? Napa Smith has the unique experience of being the only production craft brewery in the city of Napa. This stop make for some great scenery along the way and of course excellent beer when you walk in the door.
Located around the corner from the Ontap office this is not only one of favorite stops but a venue we frequent when we are not running tours. Fogbelt is very unique in the fact that they are one on the only local breweries that use an open fermentation process while they brew their beer. Let Ontap educate you about this process some more on one of our tours.
If you are looking for a great outdoor patio and beautiful scenery look no further. Stumptown is located near Guerneville on the Russian river. Look forward to excellent food, artfully crafted beers with spunky names, and a great relaxed atmosphere.
Petaluma Hills is another one of favorite stops. Located in Petaluma across the street from Lagunitas, Petaluma Hills makes for a fun place to be. The owner JJ not only makes flawless beer (our favorite being the triple J Belgian), He is also something of a comedian. If you have the chance to hear him talk about his beer you should take it.
Located in the city of Sonoma, Sonoma Springs is yet enother example of what the great region has to offer. Let Ontap bring you to this great brewery in style.
