Most of the time there's a line.. we came Monday at 12 and we were able to get in right away. We had pizza and their sampler. It was 17 beers for $22, which is a pretty good deal considering the individual tasters are $2 a piece. The best beer is Pliny the Elder. My husband and I have driven... More

My only complaint is that this place gets crowded (to misquote Yogi Berra, that's why no one comes here anymore). Ok, on to the good stuff: beer - lots of it. If you opt for the sampler they will bring it in two racks -- 16+ different ones to pique your palate. As for food, the menu has been expanded... More

I went to dinner with two friends. We split a medium Omni pizza and it was delicious. Excellent crispy thin crust with gourmet toppings made for delicious dinner. We had a few samplers to accompany the pizza, and both the pale ale and the porter were great! Our server Corey provided great service and excellent recommendations. The place was crowded... More

I have to say, I'm not a beer person right but even I found three I could drink. It's a great vibe in this place and a lot on offer. I recommend booking a table though especially on the weekends. it gets busy and despite it's size not as much seating as you'd expect and it is the reason a... More

Best beer and food of our short vacation in this area. Yes, we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table (at 5:30 pm on a Wed night), but are so glad we waited. The variety of tap beers is amazing, and it looked like most beers were $4 to $5 a glass. Food options were extensive, and portions... More

Russian River Brewery is well known for its craft beer. With 20 or more locally brewed beers on its menu at any given time the aficionado can easily find something that pleases the palate. There is often a line waiting to get in do plan accordingly. We chose to go around 2pm in the middle of the week and were... More

We were told about this place by a few locals while on a wine tour. We were also told to go early as it is ALWAYS crowded. We showed up about 15 min after opening and the line was down the street. We waited probably a total of 30 minutes which wasn't terrible, got a table, ordered the beer flight... More

Really awesome place. Showed up after friends finally got a table. They waited for an hour at an off time. Large selection of beers. The pizza was great. The staff is really friendly. I don't know if I would wait an hour, but I had a good time.

Need to go there eat arugula pizza and drink a lot of awesome pints, or a flight of beers. A must stop if visiting Santa Rosa!

We always make time for a trip here when in the Sonoma wine country. It is often quite crowded and on some occasions the wait is very long. All of the brews are noteworthy and the selection of bar food is just what the doctor warned you about on your last visit. That said, it is difficult to go wrong... More
