FINALLY made it out. This place is only 4 hours away, but damn that California traffic! I was going to stop here and Lagunitas in the same day, but Russian River was just too bountiful and too good and I couldn't make it out to Petaluma by the end of my stay in Santa Rosa. Not much needs to be said about Russian River. It is one of the best breweries in the world. Their taps run the gamut from porter to sour to IPA. And they are ALL good, if not better. And it's reasonably priced! 4.50 pints or 3.25 during happy hour. 2oz. tasters under a dollar? Could a beer lover ask for more? Well there is more! You can buy bottles to take home! They obviously cost less coming directly from the source. And their food is pretty good too! The only issue I had was that the house vinagrette was too oily - not mixed enough or something.

Service is a little slow sometimes, but you can't fault them entirely considering how packed it gets in there.

A tremendous value to be sure. You're drinking $$$$ quality and you're paying $$ for it.

I visited on a recent weekday and walked right in at opening time. Checking in for a few brews and a bite to eat. Sat at the lengthy bar near the register for quicker all-round service/attention. Nice selection of house brews and select others. Great service at the bar with facility full by 12p. Ample parking outside (cheap meters or close parking structure) and bathroom small but meets the need. Great food selection and great food in general. I love this place for the mellow yet vibrant ambiance. Easy to strike up a conversation with those local, and not so local. The combination of food/beers/service/take home bottle selection/ parking/bathrooms make this a go to on my list when in the area. Hope this helps. Cheers.
