As a big fan of craft beer, we decided to visit Russian River for a few drinks and some food. We visited on a Friday afternoon about 1:30pm. Parking in the area is mainly street or metered parking so be prepared. I'd advise to spring for the full 2 hours because the wait at Russian River is atrocious. Once we... More

ワインカントリー、ソノマカウンティーのサンタローザに滞在を決めながら、滞在初日の晩ごはんは、このブリュワリーと決めていました。ワインでなくクラフトビールを飲もう! ワイナリーで働く人はビールが大好き。だからワインが多く作られている街には、おいしいクラフトビールがある。造られている。舌の肥えた醸造家がいますから。 サンタローザのダウンタウン。4th St.沿いにあります。Santa Rosa Plazaから真っ直ぐ。そこまでいくつかのレストランやカフェがありましたが、どこも5割程度の入り。しかしこのお店だけは超満員。30分待ちでした。日本と同じスタイル。名前を書いて、携帯電話番号を書いて。順番がきたら呼び出してくれる。我が家は携帯電話を持っていなかったので、30分後に必ず来ることを伝えて再度来訪。 混んでいるので、オーダーをなかなか取りに来ませんでしたが、それは仕方ない。しかしオーダーを取に来てからドリンクや料理が出てくるまでが早かったです。 最初はやはり18種類のビールが飲めるサンプラー。えっー!と思うようなビールもありますが、それも楽しみの一つ。サンプラーの中から美味しかったビールを選んで飲みたいので、サンプラーは妻とシェアー。そのあとおいしくて選んだビールは、妻がホワイトビールのLittle White Lie。私がスタウトのRussian River Porter。日本ではなかなか味わえないビールでした。 ビールのあては、Green Salad(ハーフがあります。ハーフで十分の量です)、Chicken Wing(好みの辛さを聞かれます。マイルドを選びました。それでも辛かったです)、Charcuterie Plate(シャルキュトリー・プレート。生ハムやピクルス、チーズが盛ってあります。どちらかといえばワインのおつまみ)、Tuna Sandwich(最初の3品で物足りなくて追加した1品)。 美味しいビールを飲ませるお店だけあって、料理もビールとよく合いおいしくいただけました。 再びサンタローザを訪れる機会があれば、また来ます。今後はサンプラーなしで、最初からクラフトビールをグラスで何種類か飲みたいです。

This downtown Santa Rosa brewery and restaurant opens at 11am and was popular with visitors and locals who were waiting for it to open, always a good sign. The craft beers are excellent, and our server at the bar was very knowledgable, friendly and it is easy to see how the atmosphere here is highly rated. Parking is available on... More

I must start by disclosing that I am quite a fan of craft beer and this was in my all time top 3 places that I want to go. I have had many pints of Pliny at various beer establishments and am quite a fan. I wanted to visit the source and sample all the brews that aren't available in... More

In order to book a trip to Napa, I bribed my husband with a trip to Russian River. I think this was the highlight for him as he was in 7th heaven. Outstanding beer. Great pub far... I had meatball sub, tasted great! We got the buffalo wings and they were fantastic. Crazy lines to get in, but they have... More

After trying to get in last year and not wanting to wait for hours, I got into a Russian River at 3:45 pm on Wednesday this year. It was still quite crowded. My friend and I shared a sampler with 16 beers for $16, which I highly recommend. They have lots of beers with many being hoppy or Belgian. The... More

I'm only giving this brewery a "very good" vs "excellent" because of the crowds! This place is packed!! It's small and there was standing room only, a 3 hour wait for a table, packed bar with people reaching over you the whole time to order drinks and fill growlers, bartenders could hardly keep up... Would I go back, though? Yes!!... More

My wife was committed to eating here so we put up with the wait. We were lucky enough to find parking right in front of the door at 1PM on a Sunday so we could see the line. The restaurant was kind enough to erect 2 tents over the line nearer the door to create some shade and also brought... More

We went on a brewery fueled trip this past weekend, and decided to check out Russian River, specifically for Pliny the Elder. We had about a 50 minute wait, which wasn't unexpected on a crowded Friday night at dinner time. We ordered beers at the bar and found a seat outside until we got a table. The four beers we... More
