Made a day trip up to this mecca of quality brew from Berkeley....a pleothora of mostly gushing reviews what can be added?....a warm and sunny day in Santa Rosa, Ca. enyoyed with my daughter (not a huge fan of upscale beer) Warm, bright and inviting space, a boat load of world class beers, friendly staff, friendly and warm locals, friendly and excited to be there beer travelers..bottles of Pliny to go..1/2 pints of redemption, temptation, supplication and the beat goes on...a must visit temple of high quality mostly only found in this one place destination....I enjoyed 3 or 4 1/2 pours, couldn't get 19 y.o. Jane to buy in and we were gone...the Pacific beckoned...the glow lasted...the memories linger...I'll be back...

Got there as they opened and a line already formed outside. Service was quick and friendly. Food was good but not great. Beer was obviously exceptional. Sampler option is insane with 18 beers offered. Never seen a sampler like this before. Would definitely recommend but understand there will be a line on the weekend and the wait can be lengthy. It is a pretty small seating area.

There is no better place for IPAs or Sours in Northern California (probably anywhere actually).

Russian River Brewing Company is 1 hour north of San Francisco, and is nestled in some of the finest wine country in the world. If you are looking to have lunch, you need to get there on or near 11am. Otherwise you are risking a lengthy wait in line.

A rookie mistake to avoid is to try the entire beer sampler by yourself, because if you finish it, you will be hammered. If you have >3 people, its definitely a great option though.

This is a must visit place if you are anywhere near San Francisco. Just an amazing selection of beers and the people there are extremely nice.
