Good: relaxed rural setting, tricked out taproom (pictured), a disc golf course, a horned bear (below) and nice outside seating make it a great atmosphere.
Bad: no food offerings for hungry travelers (other than shelled peanuts), no specialty brews in bottles for sale, mediocre gift shop and no growlers (a temporary problem, we are told).
Ah, screw it, beer is food, isn't that what the Germans tell us?
My wife and I visited AVBC on July 22nd as part of a visit to the spectacular (and under appreciated) Mendocino Coast. I had been to AVBC nearly a dozen years earlier when the taproom was located inside a local Boonville restaurant. It has now moved onto the breweries grounds at the junction of Highways 128 and 253. That is both a good and bad thing.
