Sonoma Cider (What a Surpirse)
Healdsburg, CA — Sonoma Cider, the award-winning hard cider company rapidly gaining a reputation for its certified organic ingredients and crisp, distinctive flavors, opened its doors to its first brick-and-mortar taproom, giving a home to all Sonoma Cider fans near and far. Located in Healdsburg, CA (a block south of Healdsburg Square) and led by Sonoma Cider’s Founders, David and Robert Cordtz, the concept is a reflection of the brand’s philosophy, where craft, authenticity and enjoyment reign supreme.
Guests can expect a wide variety of craft ciders (23 taps in total) including micro-releases, experimental batches and exclusive flavors from Sonoma Cider, as well as artisanal ciders from around the world. Several Sonoma Cider micro releases are available exclusively in the taproom including: Gravenstein produced with 100% Sonoma County Gravenstein apples; Golden Delicious featuring fruit exclusively from nearby De La Montanya vineyards; and Bananaweizen fermented with Hefeweizen yeast and bananas. Local beer and wine will also be available.
Executive Chef Matthew Hodson features French and Basque influenced cuisine which pairs exquisitely with the unique cider flavors. Small plates include: Raw and Smoked Oysters; Charcuterie and Fromage Boards; House Pickles; Cider Brined Olives and Deviled Duck Eggs. Entrees include: Crab Bisque; Pork Meatball Bahn Mi; Trip-Tip Dip; Nicoise Salad; Apple, Chicken and Crab Risotto; Chicken Normandy; Pate En Crote and a selection of sweet and savory crepes.
