Craft micro breweries exist all over the County - there are plenty of really good choices; their food tends toward pub style and can be quite good. Bistro 29 is a French Bistro where wine is the adult beverage of choice.

Bistro 29 located in downtown Santa Rosa, Sonoma County. Bistro 29 is a traditional bistro specializing in “Breton” regional cuisine. The number 29 comes from the department of Finistère (end of the earth) located in the upper tip of north-west France. Known for the Galette de blé noir (traditional buckwheat crêpe) and sweet crêpes, Bretagne also uses a variety of local seafood and produce that can easily be found in and around northern California.
