The Bottle Barn is equivalent to the Beverage Warehouse in Los Angeles, CA. It is a warehouse for alcohol, wine and beer and has a pretty good single bottle selection in the cooler and aging on the shelves. If you are tasting around the area and want to buy a bottle at one of the breweries, I would check bottle barn first if you want to save a bit of money. For instance, Bear Republic's beer is about 1 dollar cheaper at the Bottle Barn than at the Brewpub.
I picked up quite a few beers from Moylan's that I could not get in Southern Cal, especially the Hopsickle. God, I love that beer.
I found that they had some odd beers from Belgium that I had not seen at other locations. I would definitely check this place out and grab a couple cases before you leave the area.

Supposed to be the best shop in Santa Rosa? I feel bad for the area, because if that’s the case then they have the worst selection in Cali despite RR down the road. Mostly wine here and I did find some nice Crooked Stave regulars and the latest Almanac sours. BA Old Raspy and Old Stock Cellar Reserve was there and reasonably priced, and snagged a Four Roses Eclipse. Prices were pretty decent though with Eclipse at $26, when I usually see them at $32. No RR in stock, kind of sad. Glad I was able to find some things worth seeking out, but nowhere close to what I had expected. Only OK.

A very solid place in the Santa Rosa area. Wonderfully located about a mile form our hotel north of town. Easy to find, clean, nicely laid out.
Selection was good but not mind blowing. We had hit the Whole Foods Coddingtown Mall the day prior and picked up all we needed. We did get a couple of bottles for the room.
This is a great spot to pick up an inexpensive styrofoam shipper. Extensive selection and good amount of inventory.
Worthy but not essential.

A fine enough bottle shop. They had small Belgian, UK and German sections. There were more Cali and some other west coast beers. I didn't see any singles besides the 22 oz and foreign beers. The value is excellent though. It's better than the grocery stores and worth a stop if you're driving through the area.

I've made a couple of trips to Bottle Barn picking up some beer (what else?) and every trip has been a success. I sometimes feel overwhelmed and finding myself not knowing what to spend my limited budget on. Not that it's super pricey or anything. They have a very large selection of beers, ranging from cheap to very high dollar, and everything in between. Every style I have ever heard of I have found here. The service doesn't seem too keen on helping customers unless asked, but I somewhat enjoy getting kind of lost in a sea of beer. I am also a whiskey fan and they have a pretty good selection of that from what I saw as well. If you keep your eye on it, you will leave with a nice tow of bottles for a decent price. Next time I'm up in that area I will be making another visit for sure.

I stopped here on a day trip to visit an old friend and collect a 12 bottle shipper full of goodies that are unavailable to me in my part of the country.
Luckily they had a few bottles of Pliny and Blind Pig for $3.99 sold!
I also grabbed several FW Parabola, Double Jack, Anniversary 16
There was more selection than I had time and space for. I would recommend stopping here. Thumbs up!
