SHIG (305) Bury St Edmunds, England | February 2, 2016
Newer brewery attended during RBWG. The beers were rather on point for being new. Their IPAs impressed. A bit crowded this day with all the nerding going on, but seemed rather large taproom. No food served yet, but a food truck did set up shop outside. Recommend scoping it out if your in Sana Rosa.
Industrial tap room close to others, we walked here from Moonlight and Plow is even closer. Long bar along the back of the room, and about 10-12 tap's, good varity among styles allthough abit IPA heavy, pilsner, a couple belgians, stouts, a sour stout. Overall good quality of the beers. Samplers size pours served at 3-4$, full pours is 6-8$. A good number of guests on a friday night, still service was fast and effiecient. A good visit.
Brewery back in industrial area. Inside is wide open, height gives it appearance of more space, but its petty small. Bands on a Tuesday were rocking the place. Looks like constantly rotating taps, a good variety of styles, most of the usual suspects and a fair amount of IPAs. Friendly and comfortable.. Small menu available, but did not eat.
Visited here to kick off the RB Best weekend in 2016. This is a pretty classic brewery taproom, with a large bar, lots of taps and a spartan, industrial feel. It is neatly laid out, with a smattering of decor and some corn hole to the side. The staff seemed quite capable, and must be decent folks if they’re hosting an RB event, right? They offer the beers in small pours, so you can work your way through the line-up even if flying solo. The beers were quite solid overall, with the hoppy beers probably being the highlights. Fair prices. This was one of the best breweries in the Santa Rosa area, so a visit here is highly recommended.
Nice brewery tap room in north Santa Rosa. They had a pretty decent selection of 9 beers on tap, samplers available. Their hoppy stuff was really good, some pretty tasty americanized Belgian style beers as well. Prices were reasonable, service was efficient. Just quality-wise, a must visit when in the region.
Cool spot in North Santa Rosa. Lots of space, tables, bar. Murals and giant tv projection on the wall. Friendly service and more than solid beer across the board, especially the hoppy stuff. Really dialed in for a 7 month old brewery. Tasters are steep in price, but pints are ok.
Visited on 30/01/16 around noon to kick off the RB Best festivities so far from a typical days trading for this place! Large warehouse style affair with 9 taps on offer, some games to play, large tables with stools cast around the building. Hard to judge how crowded this venue would normally be mind. Service was friendly and tasting flights were on offer, although a little high end on $$$ for me., that said the pint prices were fair. Beers were decent ... no duds, hoppy stuff was solid, other rews just fine. Definately the best of the newer/smaller brew taps we came across in the Sonoma area and well worth a visit about 2 or 3 miles out of downtown Santa Rosa. Plough/Divine tap room and Bottle Barn around a 6/7 minutes walk. Uber to downtown @around $5.
We stopped in here for the VIP/Brewers reception portion of RB Best weekend. Glad I got here early because it got crowded. There were 11 beers on tap, and the overall level of quality was very high, including a really killer DIPA. The bartenders were gracious and attentive. The space itself is in an industrial park kind of area of SR, where a few other brewers are located now, but the inside is a kind of big, welcoming box shape with a long bar in the back, wood paneling on the walls, and some colorful artwork. I had no idea what to expect, but this place is second only to Russian River in terms of across-the-board quality in Santa Rosa. Great new brewery.
A Large, airy, no-frills warehouse taproom. The 9ish beers on tap included some Belgian-influenced offerings and several hoppy numbers. I generally found the hoppy beers to be more dialed in. The staff was friendly and didn’t seem crushed by the presence of a large crowd. I found the prices to be high for smaller pour sizes, but reasonable for pint drinkers. Decent place.
Warehouse brewery with a tap room in the front. Interior was pretty well decorated for what it is. Flight was decently priced, but samplers a bit expensive. Hoppy offerings were solid, the Belgian brews were quite mediocre though (which often is the case in the US). Nice service. Board games and bags available. Well worth a visit.
Large open space in an industrial park. Nice passionate staff with the brewer floating around. Large selection of beers, hoppy ones being the standout. Most expensive samples I have seen in the USA at 3$/each. Good beer, just pricey.
