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.

LOVE the beers. Absolutely one of my favorites. Great pizzas here too. The parking and the crowds are getting to be a bit much for me, though, and the service is hit and miss. Hard to relax, but SO worth it.

Been a few times and adding some commentary on the experience from notes I finally found. Santa Rosa is a bit out of the way but not too bad for the die hard beer fan. We were in town to hit wine country but I convinced my girlfriend to stop in twice to Russian River while in the area. Large bar with lots of seating. Great selection across multiple styles. We both settled on a sampler. Good value. Definitely worth the trip. Great beers and the people both at the bar and the staff were friendly.

They make hoppy beers well. I’m not a fan of sours, but they’re well done. Food is really easy to get when you’re there. Pretty damn phenomenal.

Visited late Sep 2014. Busy evening, had to grab a pint at the bar and wait for a table to eat. Nice vibe though, friendly and the crowd seemed happy and quite diverse. Service was very good, selection was decent: obviously all the favourites plus the less-hyped beers which were still nice but not mindblowing. Food was good, prices were ok, draft and takeaway beer prices were good. Definitely worth a stop.

Visited on Sunday evening, 27/04/14 around 9pm. The place was pretty packed, no room at the bar but we grabbed one of the last remaining tables. I took down the tasting tray which contained all 18 beers that were on tap, with a bottle top from each nailed onto the tray next to the beer, which was pretty cool. Solid beers as you come to expect from RR but you also get some of the ’you’ve tried the best, now try the rest’ offerings which didn’t really excite but a rates a rate. Food was solid enough but not standout. Picked up 6 bottles of fresh Pliny to go for a little over $30, bottled 5 days previously. 6 bottle limit per person. The crowd was largely 25/30 something locals, we got chatting to some beer geeks who had come for the weekend from SF. In all a solid stop.

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.
