Well you got to wait and wait and wait... Hoppy beer is king and they have many. Don't make plans and take your time, they do.

Just about 21 miles from Sonoma, this is the mecca for beer aficionados. We went there for the elusive Pliny the Elder IPA, but found the restaurant to be quite surprising in the good food, portions, and prices. Get a flight of their American influenced beers and enjoy with a generously laden cheese plate and salad. This place is popular... More

My husband and I had such a great time here!!!! The bartenders were awesome and so were all the people we met while we were hanging out! The place has such a great vibe! It was crowded and we were there at 11:30 am. We started with the beer tasting board to give us an idea of all Russian River... More

We only wanted a couple of beers, but the staff were determined that we were going to have food too whether we wanted it or not. If they had been more pleasant we might have gone back to eat on another day. Menu was unexciting but ales on offer were plentiful as were the T shirts. A noisy, bustling brewery,... More

I have never complained about service in an equivalent establishment before. My husband I were initially told that we would have to wait half an hour to be seated to get served, a time which we were prepared to wait. We actually had to wait much longer. A couple who had not been waiting were, on walking up, seated immediately... More

Go for the beer. It is well worth the wait. I had the sampler which is essentially the two flights (California and Belgium) plus an experimental. It was a 2-oz pour of 19 beers and included three sours. I like bold flavors. I don't like sweet beers. The California beers were my favorites. The notables were the Russian River Porter,... More

Great experience tasting rack of beers, food, family fun. Very busy and exciting atmosphere. Don't try to just sit at a table, they are all reserved for you turn in line. Good system of pagers to let you know it's your turn to party 😎

We will go here often for a few beers. Great to try different ones. The pizza is pretty good as well. Can get real busy on the weekends, and almost impossible to get in when the "Pliny the Younger" is flowing!

This brew pub isn't much to look at on the outside but it's a local institution that shouldn't be missed by beer-loving tourists. Tables seem to be scarce during meal times but the wait is worth it to be able to sample some of the unique brews, many of which are only available at this location. There's a lively vibe... More
