The company produces handcrafted Jefeweizen, Morena Ale, Cerveza Pilsner, Carneros IPA and Negra IPA using the best ingredients and the hops grown at the brewery in Sonoma. The Carneros Brewing Company invites you to visit the brewery and taproom to sample their refreshing brews. The adjacent sprawling beer garden around the pond is also great for picnics and offers lovely views of the Carneros countryside.

  • Really enjoyed their beers, got the sampler, 5 for $16. Not usually a fan of IPA, but theirs were not as bitter as most. The porter was just ok, not as sweet as I'm used to. The staff was attentive an...  more »

  • This place rocks. The beer was excellent, and I mean excellent. I enjoy lighter beers and they had quite a few options all of which had great flavors. The employees were friendly and helpful, and the indoor atmosphere was cool. What really helps this place shine is that the outdoor area is gorgeous, and had plenty of tables and chairs in shaded locations. And they will even bring your beer out to you! It rocks. I'd definitely go here again, I'd even go a little out of my way to get here.
  • Super friendly service. Great outdoor space to enjoy the sun and drink a beer.
  • The sour beer was wonderful. The other beers lacked for me something that I couldn't quite put my finger on, it was like they were too... clean. They didn't have the character or depth of flavor, complexity, and lingering finish that I love in many craft beers. The aromas were wonderful, and some were very creative (blueberry extra pale) but there was no punch. Even the heavier bodied Doble IPA didn't strike me as something made with extra love. I like my beers to have a home cooked character; I want them to be an experience. A strong base with subtleties and uniqueness abound. I felt everything was subtle here. Except the barrel aged sour, that had everything I want in a beer. The service was awesome. I felt we had special attention and the bar keep even offered the history and of the place and its owners. Each batch is seven barrels, so expect great turnover here. I will visit again sometime, I feel it's definitely worth a second try.
  • They had shuffleboard and a bean bag toss to enjoy while visiting. Additionally, I liked seeing the bottling system up close - it was there to see and walk around and check out. It was really neat to see how it all works!
  • Unfortunately, I have to rate brewery a 3. They are extreme with their malt, specifically their Caramel malt. It's overwhelming in most of their beers. Out of the 10 some odd beers on tap, at least 6 are malt heavy. It's strange. Even their IPAs have heavy malt in them. Disappointed. Beautiful venue though.
