We all know that you’ll find amazing wines here in the Napa Valley, but why not mix it up a little on your vacation and try some tasty brews from these Napa Valley breweries. Summer is the perfect time for a refreshing pilsner on the patio, a hoppy IPA while overlooking the vineyards, or even cozying up with a local porter in front of the fire. At these Napa Valley breweries, you’ll find amazing outdoor spaces and very drinkable beers.

Part of the enjoyment of a getaway to Napa Valley is the diversity in the dining and imbibing options you’ll find here. Though you might not expect to visit one of the wine capitals of the world and come home with a new favorite brewery, if your mind and palate are open, you could surprise yourself. Additionally, since these Napa Valley breweries know their audience, you’ll more than likely find an amazing glass of wine there too.

Our Napa Valley Bed and Breakfast is the ideal location for winery or brewery tours in the area. We’re less than 10 minutes from downtown Napa and centrally located to the other lovely small towns of the valley. Our lush garden grounds and back pool terrace offer lots of private and cozy places to enjoy an adult beverage, so we always encourage guests to bring back their favorites and imbibe here at the Inn, especially if you’re still a bit unsure about crowded spaces.
