I'd been dreaming about a visit to Russian River and I finally got there during a business trip to SF. And it didn't disappoint.
RR is in a quaint, interesting downtown area with lots of shops and restaurants. It's in an old building and makes use of the age very well. The exposed walls really shine with vintage beer signs displayed. It has a very authentic feel.
The tap list is solid with most of their beers available and one guest (Sierra Nevada when we were there). We had the full sampler with one of each beer on tap. It leads you first through the American styles then the Belgians. There were no disappointments. I followed that up with a Pliny.
RR has a great atmosphere, interesting crowd and outstanding beer. I highly recommend a visit. And if you want to eat somewhere else afterwards, try Tex Wasabi's (Guy Fieri's place) just down the street.
