Next time you’re driving through wine country you’ll have one more location to sip a few beers. Napa Smith Brewery has opened a brewpub in the wine mecca so weary wine tasting beer aficionados can refresh their palate.

According to Brewmaster Don Barkley, “We’ve been making great beer for a while now, and I think it’s about time we have a place where you can come in and taste it fresh from the Brewery. If you want to learn more about beer or take a tour, you can do that. If you want to just relax over a cold, refreshing beer, you can do that. We just want you to have a good time, meet great people and enjoy life at its finest – that’s what Napa Smith is all about.”

The new venue will feature 8 different beers on tap with wine available from Bourassa Vineyards. Operating hours will be 10am to 5pm daily with tours available at 3pm. On Saturday, October 8, they’ll be celebrating the grand opening with $2 pints and a food truck from noon to 4pm.

Pelican Brands, which merged with Paddington Brands earlier this year, acquired Napa Smith back in December of 2010 and this development is an extension of their investment in the brands distribution and capabilities, which exceeds $1 million. Chairman & CEO of Napa Smith and Paddington Brands, J Smoke Waillin is looking to expand even more. He stated that “as our brand grows across the US, we expect to make significant additional investments in Napa,”
