Finally made it up to this beer palace with a few good buddies. Thanks everyone for making this one of the best birthdays ever!
A: A mix of young and old, but more leaning towards the mid-20 to 30 year old range. Typical, yet upscale, brewpub that featured a wide range music and nice ambiance.
Q: The first thing I grabbed was their flagship beer...PtE (you could argue Blind Pig is their flagship brew...but whatever). And man, I loved this beer before...but it took me to another level. So...as the story goes, every beer thereafter delivered the same experience for me. Not one disappointing beer over the two trips we took their....therefore, quality wasn't an issue at all.
S: Pretty standard; nothing that I found extraordinary...or bad either. To sum it up...GOOD.
S: I was happy to see Temptation, Consecration, and Supplication on tap...which was a plus. Roughly 15-20 in house beers on tap, all which I enjoyed.
F: Above-average brewpub food at a decent price.
Overall: I would find it hard not to have fun at this place, even if you weren't drinking beer...it's that good. A must stop in Northern California. Cheers!

Stopped in while doings Napa Valley visit with the wife. Older looking place in downtown Santa Rosa, could use some sprucing up on the outside. Inside was neat, we sat at a table rather than the bar. For the full menu sampler, so 17 beers today, only 3 of which I had before. Was excited to finally try Consecration and Supplication, but was hoping to see Temptation which wasn’t around. Beers were good and I got some bottles of Pliny, Blond Pig, Consecration, and Supication to take home. They also had their imperial porter bottles for sale but didn’t get any. Good was decent, wife had a salad and I had some beer bites. Prices were reasonable at $16 for 17 2oz samplers. Overall I was slightly dissapointed but it was great to visit. Really, how many variations of a golden ale and an IPA can they have on the menu at once? Otherwise obviously worth stopping in given its reputation.
