My God I can't wait to get back here. Pliny The Elder, Pliny The Younger, got growlers of both. Tried so many others in the taster including the Belgian Style line. All outstanding.

The layout of the bar is very comfortable, very open. High ceilings, tables on the right, bar on the left. I didn't try any food so I can't speak on that level. Outstanding service and great locals at the bar. I was lucky enough to catch the mad scientist while he was out of the lab. Thanks for sticking around and chatting for a couple minutes, Vinnie. Great guy.

Other than that, "JUST GO" should wrap my opinion up quite nicely.

so as beer goes, there is no place better than russian river, these guys absolutely kill it, we all know about the ipas and the sours, those are some of the best in the world. the place though maybe isnt quite as good as the beer. overly crowded all the time from what i gather. service was awesome, we had a friendly girl who handled here huge workload with grace and ease, but it was noisy and unrelaxing inside. beer medals are strewn about the place like they come pretty easy, other decor is unremarkable. the beer list is impressive, they had all the heavy hitters pouring. the beers of theirs that werent sour or hoppy didnt do much for me sadly. i had higher hops for some of the base beers, but i suppose thats not really a focus here. prices were fair, food looked good, cooked all in a pizza oven, but we didnt eat. a place that has been demystified a little for me, having visited and seen its run by humans. a place of lore that is somewhat of a beer lovers mecca, but the beer is better than the location, hands down.

Probably the best beer drinking experience I've ever had was at Russian River Brewery! Arrived two days after the Younger release was over so we had no problems with crowds. Yes, we missed a great beer but I'm not willing to wait 4-8 hours. The pub has a great atmosphere with a lot of energy, between the locals at the bar and the out-of-towners sitting at the tables. The people next to us drove up from LA just for the beer. The flight of 17 beers was the best I've ever had and included some great sours like Supplication and Consecration. The pizza is great, the Pliny was good as expected and I took a bottle of Consecration home. Next stop was Laganitas.

Took a vacation to Santa Rosa for a nice three day getaway. Fucking place was phenom. Super busy and had to wait 45+ minutes to get a decent seat 3/3 visits, but certainly didn't stop me. a+
