Great beer garden

We eat at Hopmonk Tavern pretty regularly. Of course, the many different beers are a hit but the outdoor garden is a great place to take out-of-towners where you can sit any day of the year. The food is pretty good and I would highly recommend the sliders and tomato soup.

Went down the street (LITERALLY) from our house and sampled the fare. If the crowds were an indication, then it was good. I was not overwhelmed by anything I had not seen, until we made it into the main venue. The fossilized skeleton was gnarly and the science geek in me cheered.

Sat outside on a lovely day (wish it had been raining though as we need it). Enjoyed a beer, nice roasted beet salad and empanadas.

Food is quite good & includes comfort & bar type foods. Sonoma ( Philly) cheesesteak sandwiches, pulled pork, mac & cheese, burgers were all great. Many ctaft... More

We sat outside by the firepit with our dogs and fellow dog owners. The beer was excellent! We will return for dinner and music.

Of all the places we ate in the area, this was one of the top two. We had two appetizers (Tacos and Pork Sliders) and they were delicious. Fun place with music but there is a cover charge. Would come back.

On our way in to Guerneville, we found Hopmonks by chance, attracted by the building facade. On first walking in, we thought we might have not made a wise choice, but once seated in the outdoor, covered courtyard, the serendipity of of our choice soon became evident. The surroundings were original and attractive; love the vertical plant sculpture. Many patrons... More
