Saturday was the 12th annual Boonville Beer Festival, one of the Bay Area’s best. This year was no exception and was even bigger than last year. A third area with large tents in a grassy meadow was added to accommodate all 68 breweries who were pouring their beer at the festival. There were old favorites and new breweries and a whole lot of fun in the Mendocino sun, proving once more that “it’s not just shy sluggin’ gorms neemer.”
