I think this is the pinnacle of my beer experience right here. This place is hands down, the best brewpub i have ever been to. staff was super fun, helpful and really seemed to enjoy their job. food was great, friendly people around and the beer.....well what hasnt been said about the beer already. an 18 beer sampler? thats insane! I did the whole thing and loved it! a fantastic time here. cant go wrong with this place. if your in this area or in san fran, you HAVE to go up here. This is Beer utopia!

I drove up with Patty while visiting Kara in San Jose. We got there 11:15AM on a Monday and plenty of tables left. Got the 15 beer sampler as it seemed most people near us were getting to try as many of their beers as possible since their beer does not travel far from the brewery. Great place, great service, great food, great beer, great time! A employee even stepped out front to photo bomb the pic Patty was taking of me by the Brewery sign. Good times.

This place is legendary and rightly so. Was worth the drive and the stay in a dodgy Travelodge. World class, great selection.

Crazy busy every time I’ve been here, service on my last visit was really slow because they were packed for Framboise sales. They must just print money. Pizza is very good. The beer is exceptional. I would go broke if I lived within a 2 hour radius of this place. If you visit San Francisco, rent a car and hit this place up. It should be on any beer geek’s fermentation bucket list.

I waited a long time to try Pliny. Simply because I wanted it from the source. So stopping in here with my buddy AJax was a special day. The draft selection and bottles for sale was really impressive. I didn’t eat anything here because we were here simply for the beer. I wish we could have spent a little more time here. This was part of an epic 6 days of California beer!

Besøgte dette sted som det tredje bryggeri i Cali men den første brewpub og må indrømme at jeg var blown away. Første dag kommer en halv time efter åbning men allerede lang kø. Meget hjælpsomt personale, ingen problemer med to børn, søde mennesker hele vejen rundt og fantastisk øl. Whats not to like.

Visited on a Sunday in July (2014). Quite crowded even at noon and I was lucky to get a seat at the bar after about 10 minutes of standing. Seeme a bit understaffed for the size of the crowd (and the crowd was predictable, I expect, given summertime and a discount on pints on Sundays). A fine range of beers available on tap, as well as some bottles to go. Bottles of Pliny were selling like crazy. Bar reached capacity during my visit and there was a small line when I left. Tasters are available, including a large rack featuring all 18 or 20 of their beers.

Great selection of their beers and pints are very reasonably priced. Restaurant is always crowed so there is usually a wait to get in. Their taster boards are fantastic and you can get many of their beers to take home either in a growler or bottles though avalibility is limited. Staff is nice but seem to want to rush you out to get more people in. Ambiance is nice with walls covered in beer logos such as the original New Albion Brewing sign.

Not sure how to add to the thousands of RRBC reviews across the interwebs. I am lucky enough to be able to come up here once a week or so. The pizzas are great, the service is prompt and friendly...yadayadayada...RRBC is all about the masterful beers. Every single beer on the board at any time is a phenomenal example of style and craft. Not one of the 19 beers at any given time will be anything less than perfectly executed and wonderfully tasty. And when you thought they couldn’t do any better/more for the Beer community - they’re adding the Sonoma Pride series to the collection. Every beer lover needs to make it a high priority to visit here at some point. I will be heartbroken when this engagement ends and I’m no longer able to bop 40 minutes up the highway for a few pints.

Pretty packed on Thursday night, got a beer at the bar and sat outside on a bench while waiting for our table. Table service was good, a bit spotty towards the end though. Three options for flights available: all of the left board selections, all of the right board selections (Belgians and sours), or all of everything. Lots of drafts to choose from. Half pints available on the left board as well as growlers for beers under 8%. A few average beers but mostly good to great. Food was good, cheese & charcuterie plate, pizza, and Pliny bites (pizza-ish cheese bread with jalapenos) were all tasty. Stopped in the next day when they opened to buy some beers to go before heading out. Quite a few people already lined up before they opened Friday morning. Well worth a stop anytime you can make it.
