Visiting Sonoma County for the beer, too

Recently there was a nice Wall Street Journal article on the quantity and quality of beers available both at local breweries and at tap rooms in the county. No trip to Sonoma is complete without stopping at some of the famous breweries like Bear Republic, Lagunitas, and Russian River plus some of the smaller, mostly unknown ones, like Plow and Petaluma Hills. There are many tap rooms such as Hop Monk and Sprenger's carrying local beers, other California brews, and beers from all over. You can find hard cider makers, too.
