I am not much of a beer drinker, but this place blew me away. We tried the tasting and they were all really delicious. Even the wine was good too. Too bad you can only drink these micobrews in Santa Rosa, CA.


love these funny coasters!

everything tasted so good, so we joined their wine club…

their healthy mossy reservoir reminded me of Claude Monet

Treehorn Books – Santa Rosa, CA

Oooh I just love a good used bookstore. I can spend hours getting lost in one. We found pretty much one of the best ones I have ever been to, in Santa Rosa, California. Treehorn Books had just the right combination of fine literature  and  many obscure books on wine and other delicious hedonistic California activities.

…and I met this lovely lady

pretty miniature paper dollhouses hung in the windows too
