We had an unexpectedly wonderful lunch, We went for the beer and because it was near our hotel, but loved the beer, food, patio atmosphere (with breeze) and even great 70s music (Beatles, James Taylor, and Cat Stevens).

They have a delicious black lager (Moonlight Death & Taxes). We also had an excellent lunch – Tavern Samosa had great filling and great sauce, fried but not at all greasy.
Beet salad was very good and lightly dressed.
Handmade veggie burger was good, and the wedge fries were wonderful (also not greasy).
All this in a large, pleasant patio (with umbrellas) with a breeze, very good service, and great music.

First time in Sonoma, and I was a little fooled heading down the main drag and spotting the front of the restaurant. Thought I would need to park on a side street, but doofus me, as I battled to fit into a parallel parking spot, I saw that Hopmonk had a YUGE parking lot right behind the restaurant. From then on, everything went well. Wonderful outdoor dining, great wait person, wonderful menu, nice refreshing beer. Enjoyed calamari and an outstanding Caesar salad. Forget what the wife had, but she was in heaven. The tab - well, there was some sticker shock, I must admit. But hate to be a whiner in wine country, where dining and lodging seem to cost a lot more than almost everywhere except Tokyo.

We grabbed lunch here with a couple of friends. We all had salads and sweet potato fries-everything was delicious. We really enjoyed the great outdoor space. The selection and quality of beers was good. Live music was good. Good service and clean restaurant. Great place to hang with friends for a few hours!

Getting around to add my review to this restaurant and brew pub a few blocks from the Sonoma Plaza. Lovely outdoor patio is attractive on a warm Sonoma day. Parking on side streets. Good selection of beers and a decent menu. It was just fun to hang out for an hour and enjoy the atmosphere.

Heard great things about this place, so we went here during our family reunion. Went during Happy Hour! They have great drinks! A wide variety of drinks. I had the Chocolatini. Yum! They have Happy Hour snacks and food, too, like Fish Tacos and Chips & Salsa. We ate/drank outside on the patio. You can eat inside and watch sports on TV. Friendly staff.
