Identify the hops in a refreshing pale ale, savor the smokiness of a robust porter, and taste the subtle sweetness in an amber on this frothy adventure. With a beer-loving local to lead the way, check out 3 different breweries to taste a wide range of microbrews and learn about Petaluma’s beer history.
Kick off your malty excursion with a visit to Baeltane Brewing whose focus on Belgian and French varieties has garnered them a loyal following from hop-heads. Though available beers vary by season, you might try a rustic saison made with rye, or a barrel-aged chocolate ale flavored with Ecuadorian cacoa nibs.
Empty your glass and move on to Mare Island Brewing Company. Run by two former winemakers, this maritime-inspired brewhouse pays tribute to the dock workers and boat builders that once flourished on Mare Island. Explore the area’s history as you sip their golden ale, named after the USS Saginaw, a steamer ship that was built here in 1857.
At Napa Smith Brewery, find out how the only production brewery in Napa got its start. Surrounded by winemakers and sommeliers, this odd-man-out operation is known for its crisp lager and full-bodied red ale. Consider tastes of each, or finish your day with one of their more innovative offerings, like a pale ale elevated with local coffee beans, or an intensely hopped IPA, aptly named Hopageddon.
