Definitely a pilgrimage destination. The best tasting deal I've ever seen: 15 beers, 3-4 oz. each, for $15. Those 15 beers included 5 from BA's top 50. The beer is so good that the bartenders don't need to be nice, but they are anyway. Food? Yeah, they had it, but who has time for food? I was focused on Pliny and his friends. I don't know how they do it, but Russian River is simply amazing. They're tapping Pliny the Younger at the beginning of February, and I'll bet it will be nuts. If you're in northern California, it's worth the detour. Heck, if you're west of the Mississippi it's worth the detour.

Stopped in while doings Napa Valley visit with the wife. Older looking place in downtown Santa Rosa, could use some sprucing up on the outside. Inside was neat, we sat at a table rather than the bar. For the full menu sampler, so 17 beers today, only 3 of which I had before. Was excited to finally try Consecration and Supplication, but was hoping to see Temptation which wasn’t around. Beers were good and I got some bottles of Pliny, Blond Pig, Consecration, and Supication to take home. They also had their imperial porter bottles for sale but didn’t get any. Good was decent, wife had a salad and I had some beer bites. Prices were reasonable at $16 for 17 2oz samplers. Overall I was slightly dissapointed but it was great to visit. Really, how many variations of a golden ale and an IPA can they have on the menu at once? Otherwise obviously worth stopping in given its reputation.
