Definitely a good stop if passing through the Santa Rosa area. Not a bad drive from San Fran or Sacramento areas. Pretty big place with a huge bar and a nice offering of all the tasty RR brews on the tap list. Lots of tables and space to move around, with the brewery equipment & barrel racks in the back. Their taster flight is a great way to sample every beer on tap. Hands down my best pint of Pliny the Elder at this place, obviously. Bottles to go of the rarer -ation beers as well.

We saw a lot of breweries on the way here. We saw a lot on the way back home. But this was our primary destination - the raison díÍtre for burning fossil fuels to see the place with our own eyes. And it was worth it. We were turned away at the door at 5pm after a quick jaunt from our AirBnB, but put on a list. They texted us about an hour later (exactly what the host estimated) and we were seated at a table next to the kitchen. We swiftly put in an order of pizza and the massive sampler set, and while we waited I secured a crate of Pliny up at the gift shop for beer trading at a later date. Our waiter was incredibly composed, even as the rush of human beings coming through the space made me think of Tokyo train stations at rush hour. That impressed upon me, and my girlfriend, whoís been in the service industry for awhile. The ambiance is warm and obviously beer-centered, with a huge blackboard up on the wall showing off the massive menu of Russian River brews available for consumption. I donít recall seeing any guest beers. Just Russian River 4 Days. I donít need to say how good the beer is, but itís a long slog through the sampler marathon, and theyíll let you sit around, unmolested, taking notes, and bantering over the life changing sours and IPAs. The walk away from the brewery came with that feeling one gets on Sunday morning as a student, where one is still in the weekend, but you feel the fun fading, and the dread of Monday approaching. Russian River left quite the impression, and Itíll occupy a large part of the memories Iíll take away from this miniature road trip.

Stopped by on a Tuesday afternoon. Place was packed and there was a 20 minute wait--and this was at 2:30 in the afternoon on a weekday. Service was prompt and friendly. Prices were decent, and the taplist was awesome. The beer was of course excellent too. Definitely worth a stop, even if it means going out of your way for it.

Iíve been three times, always a great experience. Their 20-beer tasting paddle is perfect to experience a nice trip over the different styles of beer. The food is great too.

Quite packed all the time obviously. Took me about 10-15 mins to get in, then an additional 30 mins to get a table - but it is well organised, they have a SMS service for the tables. Also, in the meantime we found a table to sit and have our Sampler Set in the open seating area. Beer prices are ridiculously low, especially during Happy Hour / Sunday. Staff and service is nice and fast, and they know their beer. The pizzas they serve are quite pricy but extremely good. Overall this place deserves to be the beer mecca of the West Coast.

Very busy place! I was there a monday a little after lunch time and the place was packed. But I ordered a beer and 30 minutes later I was able to get a table, I really like their SMS service. Food was good and I loved that I could try all 19 beers on tap in a flight. Nice knowledgeable staff and a small booklet explaning the different beers.

Best place Iíve ever been to. Great selection of their beers. Itís great to finally be able to drink all their beer together on tap. Cool atmosphere with beer lovers and families. Really the best beer in NorCal. If you love beer, Russian River is a must. Also some cool shirts, hats etc.

Outstanding brewpub, as advertised. Line to get in took ~30 min on Saturday afternoon. Stellar selection of RR beers, they offer a taster option with 18! beers. Drank Pliny, blind pig and tasters of their sours. Bought some to go along with some RR swag. The bartenders were very friendly and knowledgable. If you are close to the area, this is a must visit!

Amazing place. On a Friday evening crowded - of course - but after a short wait we got the table. Breathtaking flight of 20 beers. World class beers, tasty pizza and great service. What else could you ask for? Merchandise and beer-to-go. Yes, itís there too. And the prices are affordable. I had very high expectations... and I got much more. One of best brewpubs I have visited. Hotels in Santa Rosa are quite pricey but thatís not RRís fault... or is it?
