This is a small pub with a smallish but good menu with generally very tasty food, and a fairly good beer selection. For those who like it, it also has a large television often devoted to football (i.e., soccer) and, to a lesser degree, other sports.

The beer selection is pretty good, mostly because this is a great place to go to find local Lagunitas beers on tap, in fact the best place around. Sweet Spot is in Santa Rosa, but Lagunitas is just to the south in Petaluma. both are in Sonoma County. Unlike most places, which usually just serve the ubiquitous Lagunitas IPA (on tap almost everywhere) and maybe (if lucky) Censored, this place also serves Censored all the time, plus the full range of Lagunitas beers, including the seasonal of the moment, like Imperial Red, Brown Shugga, or Hairy Eyeball. These are otherwise very hard to find on tap. They also serve a small sleection of other beers like Guinness Draught, etc., and some ciders.

The food is tasty, including some Belizean influence.

It is also right in the heart of downtown Santa Rosa, on 4th street near Old Courthouse Square and a short, pleasant walk from many other beer-oriented places to be found here.

I would note that the other, earlier poster appears to have posted a review for the wrong place here. Sweet Spot is not a brew pub or micro brewery and generally does not have Belgian beers etc., or patio dining. I live just a few blocks from here and the other poster may have been talking about Russian River Brewing, which is a brewery, has Belgian beers, and patio dining. That place is just about two blocks down 4th street from here. He also may have meant Third Street Aleworks, though, which doesn't have Belgian beers, but does (unlike Russian River) have a fairly extensive menu, plus brown ale, barleywine, etc. It also has patio dining and is about 1 block to the south on 3rd St, south of the square.

Choices Choices Choices. Brewed on premise Belgiums, Cask Ales, Barleywine. They have something for everyone served in a brewpub atmosphere with a great outrdoor seating area.
The food was almost as diverse as the beer list and reasonably priced. You can go here just for the beer and not be bored. The wait staff made the experience a plus.
The Brown Ale was a good session brew. The Barleywine turned out to be a great desert. No problem for the non-beer geeks. My wife (a Miller Light drinker) found a brew to her liking.
If you're out touring the wine country and want to return to your true love (Beer), this place is hard to beat.
