So any self respecting beer geek owes it to themselves to visit this place at some point in their life. This was the pinnacle of our beer trip out west.

My wife and I stopped in at around 7 on a Tuesday night. We were a bit shocked by the crowd. The place was packed wall to wall. After a brief wait we scored a table and began drinking the place dry. My head was spinning from all the SOUR POWER available on tap. Glass after glass was consumed. Our server was super friendly and quick with the refills. After getting a solid buzz we ordered food. I had heard good things about the jalapeno pizza bites. They did not disappoint. So spicy and delicious. We ordered a couple entrees as well and they were very tasty. We finished the evening with several more pints and cabbed it back to our hotel.

I told my wife I wished we could of had a more intimate experience while there. So she recommended we head back first thing in the morning when they open. I love that woman. We did just that and it turned out to be a great decision. We were the only people at the bar. Got to shoot the shit with the staff and get a more personal view of the place.

Can't wait to go back. This is a must stop for all beer fans.

I've been lucky enough to be "forced" to travel to Sonoma County for work. RR brewing is a pretty great place on random weeknights when it's not insanely busy. It's always busy, but you can actually find a seat at the bar on random weekday afternoons, and that's pretty important to me.

There are plenty of California trucker hat/hoodie types here, but they don't really bother me. The bar staff are pretty nice when they're not slammed with people. The beer is obviously amazing. This is one of those places that I wish would expand just a little bit, but I fully understand why they don't want to. If you're in the area, you should definitely go, but I'm sure my rating isn't what will compel you in the end.
