After enjoying the beers for quite some time down here in San Diego, I managed to talk my wife into taking a short trip from Napa to the Russian River -- on our honeymoon, no less! She's a keeper!

Anyways, it's a great place to stop in. There's a decent enough food menu -- pizza and other standard pub fare, mostly. Lots of seating room, both inside and out, and the place is located in a cute little section of Santa Rosa with lots of bookstores, coffeeshops, etc. within walking distance. The beer selection, of course, is terrific -- most of the stuff you see in bottles available on tap and a few taps dedicated to beers that are only available at the brewery. There are usually a few bottles you can pick up to go -- I picked up a 750 of Sanctification which I'm looking forward to enjoying in the very near future. Mmmmm...Brettanomyces!

Very friendly people, too. I had run in to one of RR's sales reps, James Chase, at a bar in Napa, and he'd encouraged me to stop by the brewery. Turns out that he was in when we stopped by. He was clearly busy, but took the time to talk to us about the brewery, give us samples of whatever we wanted, and bought us a pint on the house.

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.
