Inky Beer Factoid: August 14


On this day in 1983, the Hopland Brewery (now Mendocino Brewing Company) was opened its doors and boasts being the first brewpub in the state of California and the second brewpub in the United States.  A brewpub is an establishment that sells its own beer as well as food in the same place.


Perhaps you’ve had one of their brews.  They are easy to recognize because the company names all its beers after birds and you can find a feathered friend donning their labels as well!
