Our July brewery of the month is one that, as far as the popularity of craft beers is concerned, has been around for a considerable length of time. Anderson Valley Brewing (AVB)Company has been in the business and craft for 30 years; and their experience and history offers beer enthusiasts more than just another source of good solid brews.
I am really impressed by AVB’s sustainable practices in the brewing process. From solar energy to the utilization of spent hops as fertilizer, AVB has created a means of little or no waste without compromising the taste and characteristics of their beers. Their 30 years of experience has evolved into a model for breweries around the country.
This month, O’Darby’s is offering a great selection of Anderson Valley year-round and seasonal beers on sale. I hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to not only enjoy the taste but experience the true craft of AVB. We’ll also be hosting an Anderson Valley tasting (to be announced) so please watch our tasting calendar and Facebook posts.
We’re also getting lots of new and returning summer beers weekly! I look forward to seeing you at O’Darby’s Heckle and Riverchase to check it all out!

Hop Ottin’ IPA
Hop Ottin’ IPA is brewed and dry-hopped with copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade. This beer is a showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, and resiny bitterness that hop heads crave. With a brilliant, deep amber color and solid malt backbone, hints of citron, roses, and bergamot climax with a dry, herbal finish in this well-balanced interpretation of a West Coast IPA.
Ee Tah! IPA
Ee Tah! IPA pours to a bright, golden yellow color with aromas of rich tropical fruit, passion fruit with a hint of citrus. Pale, pilsner, and midnight wheat malts give it a solid malt character while Chinook, Citra, and Amarillo hops impart flavors of ripe tropical fruit, peach and apricot leading to a clean hoppy finish.
Briny Melon Gose
Briney Melon Gose boasts a thirst-quenching tartness that is perfectly balanced by subtle watermelon flavors and aromas. Gentle additions of sea salt create a refreshing harmony between the acidity and fruity sweetness leading to clean, dry finish.
G & T (Gin & Tonic) Gose
Reminiscent of a classic cocktail, G&T Gose showcases botanical flavors and aromas of lemon peel, juniper, lemongrass, and grains of paradise. Juicy lemon-lime tartness and slightly peppery finish.
Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale
Summer Solstice® is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day.
