Starting a small Tavern in rural Northern California. Barley and Hops Tavern catalogs the trials and tribulations of the restaurant biz, and teaching wine country to love beer.

For the love of Beer

Sebastopol, CA is a quaint city in Sonoma county, an hour north of San Francisco. It ranges from posh to quaint, though everything is ensconsed in bohemian earthiness, which is somewhat foreign to me.

Occidental, California is not a city. It's neither town nor village. It's a Census Designated Place, or CDP. A CDP is a community which is both small and unincorporated, and is therefore managed by the county, not by any local government. It's about 8 miles from Sebastopol, in the middle of nowhere.

I live with my wife and two kittens in Sebastopol.

We are opening a tavern in Occidental.

Good for you, the special pride in owning your own business is worth it, I don't care what anybody says. Are you looking for any help in the employment department?
