In the interest of full disclosure, the fabulous bartender from my second home when I lived in Santa Monica is now here. I would drive hours to drink beer here because their beers are stellar. Add in seeing old friends and I won't go to the bay area without stopping by.

Lots of old California beer memorabilia on the walls. Some of the original Micros are represented along with more national memorabilia too. Uh, you can see the barrel room from the bar. All that fabulous wood aged beer just waiting its turn.

You could make a solid argument that Russian River's line of beers is the best in the country. So get to the source. They have their standard brewpub offerings (including Pliny the Elder) on tap at all times (Good stout, nice ESB, Blind Pig IPA) plus a rotating selection of belgian and sour ales. They had a lambic like Pluott ale on during my recent visit.

I've had pizza here and it is good but not necessarily great. One thing I like are the hot wings. You know how some places serve you "hot" wings that aren't hot, just taste a little black peppery. Well the wings here will make your nose run and your scalp sweat. You can get them mild if you're a weenie.

Sweet Jesus I love their beer!!!

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

Best brewery I have ever had the pleasure to visit, during the PtY/SFBW they were awesome for how many people are trying to enter, the staff was incredibly welcoming and their food was insanely good - pliny bites! The beer, well that speaks for itself... An absolute must visit for any beer lover

Great beer, great food, great atmosphere. Would expect nothing less. A little crowded, but that's understandable. They handle it well.
