Iíve been here several times after visiting Russian River, usually the morning after but occasionally I screw up and go in before drinking Pliny and want to load up on Russian River stuff. The fact is you can get most of your Russian River needs here for a little bit cheaper than the brewpub (which is how it should be) but who really needs a case of Pliny? I do. Well actually donít but I think I do. Aside from Russian River they have a number of other things scattered around the beer area in a seemingly unorganized fashion. The prices are generally pretty good and they donít have limits on most bottles. Service is friendly and if you look lost enough they will come by and ask if you need help but Iím generally just browsing and donít care much about getting suggestions. Iíll continue to stop back in when in the area.

Another spot to check out in the Russian River area. Iíd heard great things about this place, so I made sure to make a stop before heading over to the RR Brewpub.
They had a great selection of west coast and CA beers, like you would expect. They had quite a bit of FW13, Deschutes special releases (including allowing me to take home a case of Abyss). The selection of beers from other parts of the US was quite good too, especially some DFH beers that we donít often see out here in CA.
The service was not bad, but you need to take the initiative if you need some help. This isnít a problem for me, and something I generally prefer when it comes to beer shopping.
The prices are also great, at least a dollar or two less than other retailers (Mirror Mirror for example, was $10.50 instead of the usual $13).

Visited around 6pm on Monday 28/04/14.
Bottle Barn is a well sized warehouse style bottle store about 3 or so miles outside downtown Santa Rosa.
The selection was solid but didnít blow me away in terms of anything rare or that I hadnít already seen in other bottle shops in the past week.
RR wise they had no Pliny on my visit but did have a couple of their Belgian and Sour offerings.
Quite a few beers are in fridges if you need instant gratification.
Beer selection from across the US, large number from CA as youíd expect, allied to a smaller amount of European stuff.
Decent enough bottle shop but no wow factor nor would I feel any great urge to return even if in the area.

Warehouse-style place with solid beer selection and nice wine and spirits too. Excellent price points on a lot of stuff for sure.

Iím not sure what the reviewer below me was smoking because this place has a ton of singles everywhere. Lots of weird bottles from different countries, good selection of English, Belgian, German, New Zealand stuff. Wasnít able to find a whole lot of rare stuff and really wasnít stocked up with Russian River when I was there, but honestly if you are in Santa Rosa I would just go to Russian River and they sell bottles to go. The ambiance here is a very large warehouse with a ton of liquor and wine as well. You can get lost in here just walking around. Big selection, some of it is in coolers but not a lot. Didnít leave here with anything interesting though I did find some Bud Light Chelada needed for a scavenger hunt.

No singles at all. Fair organization of bottles - on the floor, crowded near the bathroom and stockroom compared to the many wine racks. Old hoppy ales (ie. Lost Continent) among lesser known breweries. Only a small proportion of beers in the narrow cooler.

Stopped in on my way back from Russian River, based on these reviews, and I must say I was fairly impressed. Selection is good, mostly West Coast, but a decent mix of Belgian, German and English beers as well. Its a warehouse, but prices are good and selection is good; they had Black Butte XXIV for $11.99, which is $2 less than I have been getting it for. Not the place to look for Cantillonís, but what they have is very reasonable.

Great bottle shop hidden in an industrial area of Santa Rosa. Found some rarities here and very well priced locals. Very fresh Russian River brews as well (3-day old Pliny? Yes, please!). Seems to be a must stop in the area according to locals, and I would have to agree since after visiting the Bottle Barn I didnít have to look elsewhere to get what I wanted (Odonata, Valley Brew, RRiver, etc.)

Light industrial building. Parking can be a bit tight when itís busy. Tough to get a cart through the single door - when you expect the door to resist closing! Canít even see beer upon entry. Overloaded with wine and hard stuff. But when you get to the right rear, itís really interesting. More space for beer than Ledgers, less than Bottleworks. Lots of beer, and itís mostly decent ales. Staff was willing to help - donít know how useful it would have been. Had my printable beer list to go by. All the help needed. A goodly number of hard to find California ales, and some old foreign friends Iíve never rated. Worth a drive of an hour or two! Highly recommended.
