Aaaaaand We're Off

In about 8 hours and 457 miles we'll be up to Santa Rosa. There probably won't be too much stopping since it's just a straight shot up the 5 for the most part, one of the most boring drives possible through CA farm country, until we get to the Toronado that is.

Our list of places to get to looks like this:

  • Toronado, SF
  • Russian River Brewpub (duh) (many times over the 4 days)
  • Third Street Aleworks, Santa Rosa
  • The Flavor Bistro, Santa Rosa
  • Bear Republic Brewing, Healdsburg
  • Lagunitas Brewing, Petaluma
  • HopMonk Tavern, Sebastopol
  • Maybe a winery (J Vineyards in Healdsburg possibly)
If you know anything else worth hitting up there, even if it's a nice restaurant for dinner or something, let us know!

Iron Springs in Fairfax is worth a visit. Maybe Moylan's in Novato? If you have more time in SF, I'd add Magnolia and 21A. Also, some new beer bars in SF--Monk's Kettle in the Mission and La Trappe in North Beach. I'm envious, man. Wish I was going with you.

Cool blog. Came across it through The Bruerys' blog. I second Magnolia. It's a good place to eat and I don't think too far from Toronado. Here is a link (http://www.thetrappist.com/) to a new Belgian beer bar in Oakland. I haven't been but my brother has and he likes it even though he is not a beer guy.

it's a good list, moylans is a good addition. since i have no breweries to add, may i suggest the garlic fries and a burger when you get to bear republic.

Will probably try to do Moylan's on our way back down to the bay today. Since we have to go to the Oakland airport tonight we'll probably check out The Trappist... good call. So many great places to go, so little time.
