Sonoma County Makes List of Best Vacation Destinations for Beer Lovers
Planning your next beer-cation? Sonoma County is the place to go.
Leading digital lifestyle site Thrillist (with over 16 million subscribers worldwide) has picked the top 10 U.S. destinations for an aficionado beer-cation. And Sonoma County made the cut.
Along with 9 other American destinations, Sonoma County was deemed the perfect spot to mix standard vacation activities, such as boating, hiking and sitting lazily in the sand, with some of the best beer in the country. Thrillist highlighted that Sonoma County is host to a series of world-class breweries, including Russian River Brewing Company, Third Street Aleworks, Bear Republic, Lagunitas, 101 North Brewing Company and Petaluma Hills.
“Oh, sure, it’s wine country. And Redwood country. And fancy-food country. But dammit, it’s beer country, too/…/and that’s nothing to say about the homey towns, cabins, roaring rivers, and mighty coastline” said the Thrillist motivation.
Cheers to that!
