There is another brewpub in Petaluma that is better known and was our intended stop, but when it was closed the night of our visit, we found Dempsey's just a short walk from our downtown hotel and are we glad we did. The riverside location gives way to great local fare, a pleasant vibe and some of the best local brews I've had anywhere. In addition to a broad menu, Dempsey's offers nightly specials (I had an excellent pork loin) and a rotating selection of fine brews which can be sampled before you commit to the pint. It's finding places like this that makes travel extra special. Places only the locals know and want to keep to themselves. Sorry, Petalumans, this is one secret that's gonna get out.
