Whenever I go up to Healdsburg, this is one of the places I have to visit. Located a couple of blocks from Bear Republic, this predominantly wine bar has a nice atmosphere and a solid, if small, selection of beers.

They have only six beers on draft, but they are well chosen and all craft. They rotate their selection often, but you can usually count on finding Moonlight and Linden St on draft.

Their bottle selection is what truly separates them from other wine bars. My last visit they had bottles of The DIssident and Fantome Hiver. In previous visits they've had Tart of Darkness, a bunch of beers from MIkkeler, and Fantome Saison.

They play movies every Monday and have various events that are usually pretty fun. Definitely a place worth checking out.

“Bergamot Alley lured us in with their tagline: “Old World Wine Bar and Merchants”. In our opinion, what we saw was more of a hip pub which does not diminish at all the fact that we enjoyed our time there quite a lot. “
“The beer would have been only half the fun if we would not have gotten the Cheesy Soft Pretzel to go with it. There were also considering their Curry Popcorn or Kettle Chips - it came with your choice of Nutella topping or Kraut and Pickles.”

Located in the heart of Healdsburg, and just across the park from Bear Republic. You roll inside, and there's an amazing amount of wine located in wooden cellar racks, very impressive, prestigous, a good look for the place.

The back room had I think 2 tap lines if I recall correctly on my first visit, since then they have expanded the number, but its not always at 100% capacity. Got to sip on some Old Rasputin the first time I was there. Its the heart of wine country, so this is primarily a wine shop, but they do carry an impressive selection of local beers. But you know, it goes even beyond just local because I've seen some good stuff from across the pond as well. Prices are commensurate with the geographical area, which is higher than average. This is wine country bro!

Service is friendly. I think most of them are there to talk wine, which is cool. I usually buy more wine here anyways (Wing Canyon, yum). This store is a big plus for people looking to do some wine and beer shopping.
