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!!!

I visited on a recent weekday and walked right in at opening time. Checking in for a few brews and a bite to eat. Sat at the lengthy bar near the register for quicker all-round service/attention. Nice selection of house brews and select others. Great service at the bar with facility full by 12p. Ample parking outside (cheap meters or close parking structure) and bathroom small but meets the need. Great food selection and great food in general. I love this place for the mellow yet vibrant ambiance. Easy to strike up a conversation with those local, and not so local. The combination of food/beers/service/take home bottle selection/ parking/bathrooms make this a go to on my list when in the area. Hope this helps. Cheers.

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said. World class beers, great food and great customer service. I recommend a Blind Pig IPA with a Paisano pizza or Pliny Bites. This place is superb in every which way and form.
