Great service especially at the bar. The food is great! Their savage sauce is really good with the pizza. The pliny bites are always a hit (tip: ask for pepperoni to be added, it's free). Very reasonable prices for exceptional beers! I highly recommend you get a sampler with all the beers. Really great deal!

Live music on Fridays and Saturdays, very nice staff a little slow but the place is crazy busy
and Pliny is on tap there, what else do you need.

Go there for the first two weeks of February and be a part of the Pliny the Younger scene, it's crazy

It can get a bit busy and noisy, but the food is outstanding, not to mention the beer. Pints and chalices of world class beers at unbelievable prices, especially on happy hour. I keep coming up with excuses to stop hete.

This place is awesome. I make the 2 hour drive up here fairly regularly and it never disappoints. Yes, it gets EXTREMELY crowded extremely quickly. It opens at 11 so I recommend getting there right at opening, get your haul and stash it in your car. Then go back in and enjoy some pints, some pizza and the great atmostphere.

I used to go here a lot when I was in college and it was a fun place to grab a bite and a beer with a friend. Since Pliny has gained in popularity I only stop in to fill a growler or grab some bottles. It's always packed and the service has never been very good. But you're not going to the Russian River for the service or the food, you're going for the beer.

I've been lucky enough to be "forced" to travel to Sonoma County for work. RR brewing is a pretty great place on random weeknights when it's not insanely busy. It's always busy, but you can actually find a seat at the bar on random weekday afternoons, and that's pretty important to me.

There are plenty of California trucker hat/hoodie types here, but they don't really bother me. The bar staff are pretty nice when they're not slammed with people. The beer is obviously amazing. This is one of those places that I wish would expand just a little bit, but I fully understand why they don't want to. If you're in the area, you should definitely go, but I'm sure my rating isn't what will compel you in the end.
