Green River Brewing & Taproom – Best Cocktail in Yolo County

Whiskey Sour
Whiskey Sour, Green River Brewing & Taproom, 2019

Green River Brewing & Taproom – The Review

Taste (3/10) – Could smell some whiskey but that was about it. The drink tastes like sour mix.

Presentation (1/5) – A cloudy, strawish yellow. Sort of looks like grapefruit juice. Lots of ice.

Balance (1/5) – Lemon juice with a hint of sugar. A real lip-pucker!

Correctness (1/5) – No egg, no garnishes, not shaken. Can’t tell if using pre-mix or made their own sour syrup.

Delivery (1/x) – Nothing.

Total (7/25) – Another disappointing cocktail from a really cool place.

Green River has an excellent space right next to Putah Creek outside of Winters. The whole thing is clearly a labor of love. There is music space, a park with seating, cornhole, and horseshoes. Even outdoor grills and taps!? The food is simple but delicious. But this cocktail, it is so bad! This cocktail is supposed to taste good! When you make it according to the recipe it tastes great! But no, all we got was some whiskey splashed with bad sour mix.

Good thing they had plenty of great beer on tap.
