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. (1,032 characters)

Amazing beer, pretty cool place, and a friendly atmosphere. I would be heaven if you didn't have to wait 45 minutes to get a place to sit down. Overall...hell, it is is RR. You have to go. (191 characters)

My wife and I visited on our honeymoon in February for a quick lunch. This quick lunch turned in to 4 hours sitting at the bar, a full paddle of every beer offered followed by a few pints, and ordering food 3x. Such a great experience, we are already looking forward to our return trip to California and will plan to spend a full day at Russian River next time. (362 characters)

Obviously world class beer. Great selection and access to bottles to go. Only downfall is the near inevitable 2 hour wait for a table. (134 characters)

Best atmosphere around. I went with a good friends of mine on a Friday night of course it was packed and we couldn't get a seat at the bar but it was alright. The beer plus everyone there is friendly (probably because the beer is that good). Good convo great beer good friends? Can't beat that Russian river is king. (317 characters)

I went here on a road trip. My wife had to drag me out, otherwise I'd still be there. (85 characters)
