Anderson Valley Winter Solstice ( Boonville, CA )

The holidays are a special time in Anderson Valley. The days are darker, weather colder, and foods richer. And Anderson Valley's Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale is perfect for this time of year. Deep amber in color, with an inviting aroma of spice and nutmeg, it was made for the turkeys, cranberries, hams, and yams of the holidays. Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale evokes a crackling fire, drifting snow, and smells of home. A hint of spice and hop bite to balance out the creamy and smooth mouthfeel, and medium sweetness.

Anderson Valley
When it opened in 1987, Anderson Valley Brewing Company was housed in the lower level of its brewpub, The Buckhorn Saloon, in Booneville, CA. The brewery has moved and expanded twice since.

In 1996, When the demand for award winning Anderson Valley's ales exceeded the capacity the original 10-barrel brewery, a new 30-barrel facility was built at the corner of Highways 128 and 253, a mile from the center of Boonville.

Within only two yearsd for an even larger and more efficient operation led to the construction of the current the Bavarian-style brewhouse, with large windows revealing the gleaming 100- and 85- barrel copper brew kettles within. The kettles were rescued by owner Ken Allen from defunct German breweries during a trip to Europe in 1995. Construction began in 1998 and the new brewhouse went online in August of 2000.
