Since starting Sonoma Cider in 2013, father and son David and Robert Cordtz dreamed of opening a tap room, and now it’s a reality. Their 5,500-square-foot space in Healdsburg has 25 taps, from which they pour the cidery’s staples, plus experimental lots and small batches crafted specifically for the space.

“I’m really excited about making all sorts of new ciders,” Robert said, citing recent creations including Bananaweizen (cider with Hefeweizen yeast and bananas), a breakfast cider called The Jax, which tastes like Apple Jacks cereal, and The Imperial (fermented with dark honey to 10.2 percent alcohol by volume and aged in whiskey barrels for eight months).

Just a block from the plaza at the former site of the Healdsburg Children’s Gymnastics & Fitness Center, the tap room is open daily for lunch and dinner, with a menu inspired by the world’s famous cider regions. There will also be beer, wine and nitrogenated coffee.

There’s plenty of bar seating and table dining, and space for live music, comedy and other entertainment. The industrial-themed space also offers shuffleboard, games and abundant free parking.
