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.

I used to go here a lot when I was in college and it was a fun place to grab a bite and a beer with a friend. Since Pliny has gained in popularity I only stop in to fill a growler or grab some bottles. It's always packed and the service has never been very good. But you're not going to the Russian River for the service or the food, you're going for the beer.

I've been lucky enough to be "forced" to travel to Sonoma County for work. RR brewing is a pretty great place on random weeknights when it's not insanely busy. It's always busy, but you can actually find a seat at the bar on random weekday afternoons, and that's pretty important to me.

There are plenty of California trucker hat/hoodie types here, but they don't really bother me. The bar staff are pretty nice when they're not slammed with people. The beer is obviously amazing. This is one of those places that I wish would expand just a little bit, but I fully understand why they don't want to. If you're in the area, you should definitely go, but I'm sure my rating isn't what will compel you in the end.
