Heritage Public House moving to Mendocino Ave.

Craft beer pub moving to Santa Rosa's JC neighborhood

The relocation of Video Droid — a popular JC campus hangout — to its new (smaller) nearby digs begged the question: What’s going into the high-profile 1901 Mendocino Avenue space? The answer, which has been brewing in beer circles for a while, is Heritage Public House.

Moving from its Cleveland Avenue location, partner Dino D’Argenzio says the expanded public house and gastropub is a better fit location-wise and demographically.

Expected to open in February, they’ll have a small menu, 20 craft beers on tap along with a beer garden and entertainment lineup. D’Argenzio’s son, Roman, will be general manager.

“We are really excited about it,” D’Argenzio said. Heritage joins a growing craft beer movement in the Northbay that includes several new brewpubs, microbreweries and specialty beer retailers.
