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.

Visited on a Sunday in July (2014).
Quite crowded even at noon and I was lucky to get a seat at the bar after about 10 minutes of standing. Seeme a bit understaffed for the size of the crowd (and the crowd was predictable, I expect, given summertime and a discount on pints on Sundays). A fine range of beers available on tap, as well as some bottles to go. Bottles of Pliny were selling like crazy. Bar reached capacity during my visit and there was a small line when I left. Tasters are available, including a large rack featuring all 18 or 20 of their beers.
