We waited in line for over five hours on 2/10/2013 to try Pliny the Younger. Once we got in, the place was packed! We order the PtY and hunkered down in corner and was amazed by this wonderful brew. After 15 minutes we were brought to our tables. We order a sour samples (only $0.75 each) and some wings and a calzone. The bake their wings, so it took about 30 mins before we got them. The food was surprisingly good and wasn't very expensive.

The service was very friendly, from the guy checking ID's, the hostess, bartenders, and servers. The people inside were just as friendly and festive. Great atmosphere

We had a great experience and look forward to doing it again next year!

Lost points on the vibe cause of all the melvins infesting my local spot but they can't be blamed for that. Top notch beer, good enough service (if you aren't a dick), and the food is pretty damn good too. Pliny bites go great with everything, the wings are HOT, the meatball sandwich is great, and the pizzas are all tasty. Clear out the nerds and you'd have a near flawless joint.

Pretty much packed every time I go regardless of a special release or not. The beers speak for themselves and they always have a great selection on tap. Food is pretty good and pairs well with their beers. Service is spotty depending on how crowded the place is. If I lived closer I would be here a lot more, but the drive and wait is well worth the end result.

Vibe - Lots of Hipsters in this place.

Quality - Great beer!

Service - Plenty of friendly help.

Selection - Many beers to choose from.

Food - My margherita pizza was tasty.

Overall - A cool space in downtown Santa Rosa (a great little town). The place is half dive bar/half retro watering hole. Plenty of seating inside and a nice outdoor patio in front. If you're in the area, stop on by.

Typical brewpub atmosphere. Service is usually solid. The food is consistently disappointing. The best sampler of any brewery you'll ever go to. And you can follow it up with extra Elder and usually Supplication and Consecration.

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