If beer isn’t your cup of tea, Viva Cocolat will tempt your taste buds with the best chocolate in Sonoma County. These locations and much more, including other restaurants and local wine bars will be part of our program.
Post-conference brewery tour (Friday 9/5/2014):
Sonoma County is a tourist destination for food and drinks, so it is only fitting that we have world famous breweries such as Lagunitas, Russian River, and Bear Republic within a short distance of our conference. This tour will be suited to beer drinkers and organized much closer to the date of the conference. If you want to join in, give us a shout and make sure you don’t plan to depart immediately following the conference.
