Arrived on a Wednesday afternoon in January. Pleased that there was no line to enter, and the 4 of us got a table right away. The place was close to full upon arrival, and was certainly full when we left after about an hour. Unfortunately due to other obligations we couldn't stay long. I had two of their classic beers - Pliny the Elder DIPA and Shadow of A Doubt Imperial Porter. Both were excellent, but I think I enjoyed the imperial porter a bit more, probably because it wasn't something you get too often. Loved al the old beer signs hanging around the place, and picked up some merch on the way out. I'm hoping this isn't my only trip to RR, but if it is I had a great time there!

Windsor Brewery...new new new and huge huge huge. Wow! What a large setup that caught me off guard. Full disclosure- I've never been to the Santa Rosa pub.

Sparkling new brewery with enough space to brew multiple batches of whatever they like. I had the kids in tow so the space worked out very well - large, distinct spaces for the pub, gift shop (with bottles to go), tasting room that was closed during our visit, self-guided tour (basically you can look down into the brewing and packaging areas) and a large outdoor area to let the kids stretch their legs. I can see this being gangbusters over the summer.

Such joy knowing that you can take home bottles upon bottles of Pliny, Happy Hops, Pig, select -"ations" . Wonderful and easy. Food was solid and reasonably priced. Pliny was snappy and crisp from draft. Beautiful.

Nothing quaint about it - it's a destination that you can spend several hours enjoying, and that's just what we did.

Finally made it from the East Coast to Santa Rosa to try Pliny the Elder and some of their other brews. Definitely worth a visit and a wait for a table. The pizza is really good too and with a crowd of happy beer enthusiasts of all ages its all good.
