Went here while attending a wedding in NoCal. Cool little place in a very groovy downtown section of Petaluma. Luckily, wasn't very crowded when I was there so I found a spot at the bar. I basically gave this place 4's all around because I just had a couple of beers then I left. The selection of tap beers was outstanding. It looked like the kind of place that probably gets real crowded on the weekends.

This is an excellent beer place, one of the best in Sonoma County.

I like the atmosphere but this is in large part due to the actual location and building. It's in the downstairs of the historic 1920s Hotel Petaluma in a portion that at one points was an Elks lodge or something like that, but has gone through various uses, including some restaurants, over the decades. It has a bar area in front and in back a fairly cavernous dining hall area that would be rather stark were it not for the ornate original ceiling and the lovely windows (they offer no view, since they are high up and look onto the opposite wall of the building, but they are themselves lovely windows fitting the pseudo Mission-Revival decor of the place). The front is more closed in and low, the back open and tall, giving a nice range. Since the place is often fairly busy, this gives a fairly good feel and experience, but it does have drbacks of making the front cramped and the back part is somewhat cavernous. It is located on the edge of downtown Petaluma, a great location. The crowd has gotten louder, roughy, and ruder as time has gone on. With the cramped front part and the cavernous back part, this has greatly reduced the vibe.

The beer quality and selection are overall excellent. There is a great range of micro brews, especially, quite varied and with some great quality amongst them. They also have a rotating cask selection. It's a great place for local, especially Petaluma, nano-brews as well. The main weak point beer-wise is the relative lack of any good imports.

Service generally seems very good, sometimes excellent.

Food is excellent, with a nice range and great quality.

I'll start by saying I've been a fan of this place since they opened, and now and am even more frequent because it's within stumbling distance of my new place..

A- The place is basically a dungeon, but for this type of establishment, it totally works.. part sports bar, part gastro-pub, all good. A little busy ALL of the time, but everyone from the staff to patrons seem friendly. Cozy bar with plenty of TVs, and tables or family style tables to sit and eat with groups.

Q- A freaking Plus. as others mentioned I have never seen Russian River on tap, but the brewery itself is 30mins north, take a drive.

S- this is where is can be slightly lacking, but hey, the place is always packed.. only gripe on the S is the fact that the Sunday brunch can sell out well before noon..

S- ever-rotating "Towers" of beer, always a great selection with a lot of variety, and a lot of random one-off local kegs run through.

F- food here is terrific. If you can catch the Sunday brunch, do it. they have great, creative hot dogs, and what I would call the best burgers in the Petaluma.

V- great beer, knowledgeable staff, plenty of good beer to choose from, for a beer lover, can't beat the value.
