I was there on a Thursday, Friday, and Sunday in August, and it was my first visit. We didn't really plan much else to do in Santa Rosa so we just went to Russian River to drink beer multiple times a day. The atmosphere of course depends on when you go. At lunch on a weekday it's a thin and fairly quiet place/crowd. In the evening it gets packed and gets loud. At nights they frequently have bands (something I don't like too much). The service on these days we was average to good. When it gets really crowded of course service slows down, at points it was too slow. However we encountered very good service on busy nights as well. As for the selection, any time you have access to 12-14 Russian River beers, that is hard to beat. The food is pub grub but very tasty. I loved the Pizza Bits. There is also a happy hour each day and all day on Sunday that has amazing deals.

There are also bottles for purchase to carry-out. Usually they have 2-3 bottled beers available.

Vibe - Lots of Hipsters in this place.

Quality - Great beer!

Service - Plenty of friendly help.

Selection - Many beers to choose from.

Food - My margherita pizza was tasty.

Overall - A cool space in downtown Santa Rosa (a great little town). The place is half dive bar/half retro watering hole. Plenty of seating inside and a nice outdoor patio in front. If you're in the area, stop on by.

Typical brewpub atmosphere. Service is usually solid. The food is consistently disappointing. The best sampler of any brewery you'll ever go to. And you can follow it up with extra Elder and usually Supplication and Consecration.

Pliny the Younger, is quite possibly the greatest beverage I have ever consumed. And that monster sauce, is definitely not to be taken lightly
