Visited with my wife at lunch time December 22. Sat in the bar area at one of the high tables. I love all the somewhat sarcastic beer memorabilia hanging on the walls - arguably the best brewery in the world and they have beer signs for common swill beers like Hamms and Jax everwhere you look.

Started off with a flight of Belgiums all of which were outstanding. My wife is a life long beer hater and she was amazed by the quality as well. As we rated our choices the waiter was giving her a bad time for giving out "B's", but that's high praise from someone who rarely gives any beer better than a "D". Had a very nice plate of meats, cheeses, olives, etc and later on some rather slow arriving pliny bites. Waiter apologized for the wait and actually comped me a pint of Pliny the Elder! People watching is great with a steady stream of locals arriving to get their growlers filled.

Overall a very enjoyable afternoon and relatively inexpensive. The Belgian flight (think it was 10 two oz samples), four pints on tap, a souvenir glass, the meat & cheese tray, the pliny bites, and three bottles of Pliny to go was only $62!

Vibe - Lots of Hipsters in this place.

Quality - Great beer!

Service - Plenty of friendly help.

Selection - Many beers to choose from.

Food - My margherita pizza was tasty.

Overall - A cool space in downtown Santa Rosa (a great little town). The place is half dive bar/half retro watering hole. Plenty of seating inside and a nice outdoor patio in front. If you're in the area, stop on by.

Typical brewpub atmosphere. Service is usually solid. The food is consistently disappointing. The best sampler of any brewery you'll ever go to. And you can follow it up with extra Elder and usually Supplication and Consecration.

Pliny the Younger, is quite possibly the greatest beverage I have ever consumed. And that monster sauce, is definitely not to be taken lightly
