Despite living nearby, this was my first visit to Russian River Brewing Company. Visited with a friend recently for lunch; however, the kitchen was closed that day until 5pm. So cannot comment on the food. We tried a 9 beer sampler (for the very reasonable price of $7.50). We got great and knowledgeable service from our server. RRBC is known... More

Go to this place for the beer. Order the pizza to allow you to drink more beer. Over the top to realize the pizza adds to the experience. Saying that, go to this place for the beer, Pliny the Elder is one of my favorite!

While visiting Santa Rosa - after hearing about Pliney Younger and Elder - we had to make a stop at the Russian River Brewing Company. First - you wait and wait to get into the the place. Then you wait and wait for a table/seat. All the while - visiting and meeting interesting people. Finally we got a table and... More

Russian River Brewing Company is my favorite Brewery. The double IPA's are awesome. I bring back extra bottles for my Beer loving friends. Pliny the Elder is my favorite but you should try the sampler platter too. The Brew Master has created a broad selection of tasty beers. The Sours are worth a try and are quite the conversation piece... More

Being a beer nerd in wine country can be tough if people you are with want to focus entirely on wine. Luckily I convinced our friends that we had to stop at Russian River to experience the amazingness that is Pliny and their sours. We went on a Sunday (and back on Tuesday ;) ) and they had pint specials.... More

Russian River Brewing Company is one of my favorite breweries. I love Belgian beers and well executed Double IPAS and these guys nail both. Not only are the beers delicious, but they make some of the best pizza in town. I am fortunate to live half a mile from RRBC, but it has been harder and harder to visit due... More

Whenever faraway friends come to stay with us in Sonoma County, Russian River Brewing Company is at the top of the places to visit list. The individual beers have so much character that they are unforgettable upon one's first tasting. Weekends are busy! As stated by some other reviewers, the food is nothing to write home about. But the atmosphere... More

Expect long waits on weekends, but it's worth it. Like many - while waiting walk around the downtown - maybe to the mall (about 5 blocks), and just enjoy the scenery. Great outdoor seating which allows those waiting to chat up those seated - fun for meeting others! My son-in-law tasted several beers - I tried two - we thought... More

My husband and I spent two weeks in California, coming from Michigan, just to go to some of our favorite breweries. If you love beer, go here. There really is nothing else to say...it's Russian River.
