Tasty beer and food. I got to try Plenty the Younger and loved it! The brewery is spacious with a fire place and bar. Outside and inside seating. Six of us enjoyed lunch and the beer.

Came for a group lunch and was empressed with the ambiance and space. Plenty of seating. Was greeted d by amicable staff, quick service. Ordered the chicken BBQ salad, was simple and good. Good vibe in the downtown.

We were so excited to visit RRB in Santa Rosa tonight, April 11, 2024, but the evening ended in a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT due to an extremely unprofessional employee. We love RRB beers so my husband and his friend approached the bar to purchase t-shirts. They...were rudely scolded for heading towards the “store” because it was closed, and when our friend tapped the offended waiter on the shoulder to apologise the bartender freaked out and accused him of poking him & “invading his personal space”. My husband and his friend were so taken aback they refused to buy T-shirts and decided to leave . I then approached the manager and explained how disappointed we were at the rude bartender’s reaction and suggested he do something to appease his guests. He agreed it was a misunderstanding and appeared to decide to resolve it but then did nothing. I then approached the rude bartender directly but he only became more belligerent, suggesting that l was lying. I explained that if there was a misunderstanding, it was on him, as a customer service employee, to recognise it and fix it, but he could not be reasoned with. There was absolutely zero motive for these two 50 year old guys to behave aggressively! Not sure what his problem or insecurity is but it really left a bad impression on us. RRB has a really good thing going. Why do they want to spoil it with a bad employee at the bar?More

Pliny the Elder is one of the beers that made me like IPAs and we were really lucky to come here a few years ago on a trip to Northern California. We had an absolutely blast here and were really surprised at how good the...food tasted! We had wings, beer bites, and pepperoni pizza and we honestly would come back for the food even if we didn't like beer; it was that good! The beer was the real star though and we absolutely loved that we were able to get a flight of 18 beers, which is the most we've had at any brewery and they were all so good! Their sour program is just as good as their IPAs and Russian River is just an absolutely fantastic place to visit. We're hoping to come to Northern California again for a few conferences in the next year!More

Best beer in the world. Enough said. Me and my wife were not able to get to eat. Pliny the Younger made up for both. I have been wanting to try it for 5 years finally got a chance and you best believe it is...the best beer in the world. My dad (RIP) drank Miller High Life in the 80’s. This is above that and all beers. Thank You Russian River Brewing Crew and OWNERS for making this possible. Thank You for my wife standing in line when it was cold at night who I love so much just so I could try Pliny The Younger. Here I am writing a review at 3:44 am drinking a take home pint. The bartenders there are super chill and are working 300% a min. Thank You guys and girls there ( RRBC). The people that stand in line are super chill except a few loud ones that need attention but once you drink Pliny the Younger that is what gets all the attention.More

Rude. I've been here a million times, always giving great reviews, but they've lost their way... having trouble (like the rest of us) to find good people... I'll try one more time, but for me, service is everything, and they dropped the ball.

It's noisy, but the pizza and wings are really good. Your kids will love the food. Go at odd hours - you still might have to wait.
