Tours and tasting rooms are not just for wine lovers anymore. Beginning with the advent of local breweries, and more recently with the appearance of homegrown cideries and distilleries, opportunities abound for aficionados of other adult beverages to observe their favorite libations being created, and to sample the final product. North Coast’s skilled artisans have succeeded in capturing lightning in a bottle for lucky locals and visitors to take home with them. Call ahead for tasting hours and the times of tours, or to make reservations where tours are by appointment only. It’s fun, educational and tasty!
