Berryessa Brewing Trip 

27260 CA-128, Winters, CA 95694

Saturday, September 16we will take a trip to Berryessa Brewing.  There is a great hiking trail nearby, and we will have a group go hike and celebrate all that hard work with a nice pint of beer (or glass of wine, both are available!)  If physical exertion isn't your thing, we will also have a group that will just be joining for the brewery part.  It's a chance to get out of Davis and explore the local alcohol industry.  Buckhorn BBQ Truck will be there if you need food with your beer/wine.

We hope to see you all at one or more of these events! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or Cory (CRDrnell@ucdavis.edu) or just flag us down in the halls.
