A lot of the best beers in the world under this roof, but the brewpub is always a busy shitshow in the evening. To me, not worth the pilgrimage unless there is a major release. If you must come, I'd come in during a weekday afternoon if you want a table.

My wife and I stopped in on a Sunday evening for dinner and drinks. My review is written purely from a tourist and I hope it can be an asset to others visiting for the first time. We stayed at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek, about 10-12 minute walk through downtown Santa Rosa to Russian River.
Sunday is their all day happy hour ($3.50 for any draft = insane) and it feels like everyone in Santa Rosa was there. We got there about 7:30pm and there was an estimated 60-75 minute wait for a table and at least two-three deep at the bar. We didn't mind at all, so we posted up near the bar and enjoyed some pints. It was crowded, but the bartenders are pros and handled it perfectly.
Our wait ended up being closer to 90 minutes, but they have a text messaging system that has a webpage so you can see how many people are ahead of you, so we didn't mind.
The beer is as advertised (delicious) and you can order a flight, which gives you a sample of every beer on tap. They sell bottles to go.
Food is simple, mostly pizza. We had the pizza bites and they were great.
