Nice mix of indoor and outdoor seating - upstairs and downstairs, booths, tables, and bar seating. Music was kind of annoying the night I went, and there were a few obnoxious drunks of various ages at the bar.

Service was excellent (fast, friendly, fairly knowledgable), though the huge number of servers, mostly in uniform, reminds me of a chain sports bar - or even a TGI Friday's sort of establishment (it seems like the kind of place where the staff wears fake smiles and head-sets, even if they don't).

They have a good cross-section of their beers: a mix of those that are always available and a few of their seasonal or limited releases, and at least one cask offering. Guest handles were pretty boring though (cider, etc)...

Happy hour prices are very cheap and they do growler fills as well.

We had pizza and fish and chips - the former was OK but not really worth ordering again, but the fish was quite fresh with a tasty (and not too oily) thin batter - and the portions were very generous.

Decent, but not exceptional beer. Food is fine at best, service is constantly inconsistent. Go to one of the many other breweries or tap rooms in town instead.

A great place for lunch or dinner. The location is nice and close to the rest of downtown Santa Rosa. I've been partial to their excellent burgers.

Their beer range is decent, and haven't been disappointed.

Third Street, like it's nearby neighbor (Russian River BC), is always busy. That said, the food and beer makes it worth it.

Went here after going to Russian River last weekend.
Much bigger than I was expecting with a great sitting area outside.
We went about noon and it wasn't crowded at all.
Porter was really good and the IPA was decent.
Really great atmosphere sitting outside, totally relaxing.

I stopped in here on a trip to Santa Rosa because Russian River was having their employees' Holiday Party so they were closed for the evening.

This place is pretty typical brewpub layout and atmosphere with sports bar ambiance.
There were 11(?) beers on tap and the two I tried were both very good but not outstanding.
One was a black porter that was a little unique.
The bartendress was excellent even though they were pretty busy. Very attentive and fast.

I had fish tacos that were also much better than expected.
The place is more of a restaurant/meeting place than a beer lovers' destination but you can
say that about 95% of the brewpubs out there.

Altogether, it's a very good place with a larger selection than many brewpubs.
