Russian River Brewing Co.

If you're heading up to Sonoma for wine tasting, consider a pit stop at one of California's greatest craft breweries. Vinnie Cilurzo is the rare brewmaster who's equally skilled at classic West Coast IPAs (aka Pliny the Elder) as he is at Belgian golden ales and sours (the Consecration is particularly fine). If you go with a few friends, order a $15 master tasting, which allows you to sample every beer the brewpub is currently pouring. You may never make it to Dry Creek Road.
