Anderson Valley Brewing Company, founded in 1987, is a regional brewery in Boonville, Mendocino County, California. Its brews include Boont Amber Ale, Hop Ottin' India Pale Ale, and Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout. They often use words and phrases from the local Boontling lingo on their bottles and packaging, as well as in some of their beer names (e.g. Hop Ottin'). Their products can be recognized by their distinctive packaging featuring the company mascot, the "Boonville beer". This fictional Anderson Valley native is part bear, part deer and looks like a bear with antlers.

The company is highly environmentally conscious, and has installed an $860,000 photovoltaic array which provides half of the company's electrical needs with a peak of 125 kilowatts of solar power.cite press release |title=Anderson Valley Now Brewing Solar Powered Beer |publisher=Anderson Valley Brewing Company |date=2006-02-06 |url=http://avbc.com/news/press2006.html#solar |accessdate=2008-09-05 |quote= ] The array is the largest photovoltaic array north of San Francisco and is believed to be the largest photovoltaic array of any brewery. The brewery also operates its own wastewater treatment plant and uses its spent yeast to grow mushrooms and as cattle feed.
