Hit this place up twice on a recent visit to Northern California.
I was salivating over going here and it sure the hell did NOT disappoint!
The bar itself is rather rustic - cement floor, wooden tables, walls are decorated with signs of beer and merchandise. Long bar with tables surrounding it. There is a side room with a few tables in there as well.
First trip in there was a bit busy. Wait staff was definitely stretched but they were all friendly, helpful and willing to talk to you about the beer. My second trip back (those less busy) proved to have the same friendly service I received before.
Food was outstaaanding! Somewhat limited yet expansive menu. Sounds weird right? Well, There are really only appetizers, calzones and pizzas... however the selection of pizza is amazing. Oh, and I should mention FREAKING delicious! Get The Clipper! You won't be disappointed!
Beer selection? Come on - this is RR. They had a fantastic selection of beers - IPA's, Sours, Belgians, a Stout.
The price on this place is ridiculous!!! Ridiculously cheap! First time we hit at happy hour, but even the second time, reasonable. I mean a pint of Pliny for like 4.50? I could get a craptastic Corona in Boston for 5 or 6 depending on the place.
Great food, great beer, staff that is knowledgeable and friendly. This is a must stop if ever in the area!

I went here the week after 4th of July, on a Saturday after Visiting Ranch Obi-wan which is not far. We had to wait about an hour to get in but unlike Seattle which doesn't let kids in, it was fine here in California! I had my two year old with me and he entertained the people outside while we were waiting. And the girl at the front gave him an apple juice to sip on too. Finally sat down and ordered some Pliney which was great and some Damnation which was better. Bought some to take back to Texas since they don't sell there"WHY NOT?" I wish you guys would sell in Texas like some other local Breweries in your same town. Anyway Pizza and beer was awasome and had a great time. I'm from California, but in Texas now....miss it sometimes but don't miss the high cost of living!
