On Tap: Sonoma County Hops & The Beer Revolution

April 20 – September 1, 2024

In Sonoma County, hops were the king of crops for more than half a century. By 1976, the hops were long gone, yet, in the town of Sonoma, the first microbrewery in the nation was born. Today, we take microbreweries and world-class beer for granted. Every year, thousands of people descend on Sonoma County for the release of internationally renowned beers. But how did it come to be? Why Sonoma County? Join us for this exciting exhibition and raise a glass to the rich history of hops in Sonoma County. Cheers!
