Roll into an industrial area. I don't really know what you do with atmosphere. On one hand, its just an industrial warehouse type of area, not exactly sexy. . . but do you need that when buying bottles? Plus, the amazingly cheap prices here are in some way connected to the fact that they aren't paying rent at a high end downtown loft in the epicenter of the chic cool chachi tony ravioli puffed shirt fancy hair crowd. So, while the atmosphere isn't much, the amount and price of beer are going to lead to an above average score based on what really matters to me.

Quality, well, they have tons of Russian River. And lots of other good selections. Beyond beer, the hard liquor and wine selection is fantastic, picked up some of the 8 barrel Buffalo Trace Experimental stuff from 1991 & 1993 while I was there, koufax21 said that $50 for them was a steal.

Service wise, everyone pretty much leaves you alone, when I asked for the chicken wire cage to be opened, they were quick to help out. Another bonus, there's some decent looking ladies at the register, big props to the fine looking native girl I'm guessing. Cute, smiley, just what you should be when a dude rolls through spending three digits.

Pretty much a must visit when I'm in the area from now on, thanks Kristalynn for the heads up on this place.

As the name suggests, this barn has a lot of bottles. Roughly over half the store is full of just wine bottles. The other section is many variants of hard alcohol with some beer mixed in. While the beer section is not large, it has a decent selection which makes it worth visiting. In addition, it also has a decent selection of glasses, accessories and related.

Stopped in after a visit to Cooperage. Wide open warehouse style, bottles available in both cold case and on shelf. For imports, i didn't notice too much out of the ordinary, the usual German, Belgian and Brit beers. Heavy on the locals for most of the craft beers, but they did have Jackie O's but only sours (boo!) Pliny bottles a plus. Found plenty to keep my interest, decently priced.

Bottle Barn is a huge liquor store with tons of hard alcohol, wine and beer. There's a pretty good selection of singles, most of which are stored at room temp but some are refrigerated. There's also a huge selection of sixers. Plenty of interesting imports and a ton of local beers, which in Santa Rosa means there's some pretty good stuff on offer.

So, the selection is really good, but it is not specifically a beer-centric place. That said, it's definitely worth a stop if you're passing through the area and want to pick up some interesting bottles.

This place is sort of a sleeper. Kind of funky and not well lit on the inside with tons of booze and wines but with a very good beer selection, including several cold boxes and then lots and lots of shelves. This is definitely worth a stop before Russian River opens or after you're done. (There are also two other small breweries across the street - weren't open when we were there so can't comment on the breweries). Bottle Barn is well worth even the extra effort.

Just your average, run-of-the-mill, mind blowing bottle shop. There’s wine and spirits but I come here for the beer. The good stuff goes fast, and it’s all fairly reasonably priced, with a massive selection.

As some reviewers have noted there are some great beers at this place but also gaping holes in their selection (I found more Victory and Abita than RR, lol). Fairly large, warehouse like environment.

Not sure how to judge the "vibe" of this place, but the most important thing is that it has great beer and a helpful staff. Its pretty close to Russian River and they usually have Pliny bottles and a boat load of other great beers.

I'd definitely recommend checking this place out if you are in Santa Rosa (or near it).

Beer selection was decent. Was hoping for more local stuff and oddball beers. Still good selection overall.
