Yummy!

I think this is the best way to describe both their food and beer. Lots of variety of beer to try and love be able to bring a growler home to keep the memories coming. Can't wait to go back.

This place is a favorite among my snobby beer friends so I let them take me there for a birthday celebration and.....we had a blast!! They are open late on weekends serving food until 12:30am, how great is that! The pizza was very good as was the grilled cheese sandwich the next day. When one of my friends had the... More

6/29/13 After spending a very hot afternoon at Lagunitas, we headed to the hotel to cool off. As the heat lingered into a Saturday night, we drove to Russian River but couldn't find a spot to park in the busy downtown area, so back to the hotel for a cab. By the time we got to Russian River Brewing, it... More

Tried the flight--16 beers tasted with detailed explanations of each. Not only a wonderful introduction to Russian River Brewing Company beers, but an education as well. Their Pliny the Elder IPA is rated as one of the best beers in America! And the food was very good too, as was the atmosphere. The service left a little bit to be... More

We recently spent a week on the North Coast of California with another couple. We had Napa and Sonoma wineries, amazing stretches of coastal beauty and redwood forests. My favorite thing of all....my lunch at the Russian River Brewery Restaurant in Santa Rosa. Easy to find on 4th Street in the city center of SR, this was the apex of... More

On the East Coast, getting Russian River beer is a rare treat. When Pliny the Elder is on tap somewhere it sells out quickly. So, when I visited my brother in San Francisco, I asked him to get some Pliny for me. His response - "Why don't we go to the brewery?" Great idea! My visit was outstanding. The atmosphere... More

Wrote our wedding vows here last year while enjoying their great beer and pizza, so knew we were coming back this summer during our wine tasting trip. Stopped here twice this visit and it was packed for the 4th of July holiday! We waited a bit and then got a round table towards the front and ordered one of their... More

Loved the atmosphere, beer and food. Lots of fun! It is very busy and packed so be prepared. The waiter was very helpful regarding the beer choices and tended to our table often. We had a great experience and would go back.

I enjoyed celebrating my birthday here with friends and family. We had an awesome time drinking the different beers they have on tap. I think they highlight for me was the awesome waitress there who was a massive Doctor Who fan; chatting with a fellow Whovian topped off the perfect night. I have been to some pretty cool bars and...
