Always delicious and always crowded. Get in line and wait...it's well worth it!!! Try for an outdoor spot to enjoy people watching in beautiful Sonoma County.

Basing this off my husband's experience as he likes the Pliny the Elder beer which is hard to find locally or marked up exorbitantly. They have a bar and tables and a section to the side for buying bottled beer to go and merchandise. Foodwise we just had their appetizer of garlic cheese bread with marinara which was good. Meter...

I've only been here to buy beer to take out. Pliny the Elder is awesome. I don't like waiting in line, or crowds, so I'm not likely to hang around. But the atmosphere does seem warm and fun. Such good beer. Hard to find anywhere else.

My second time in here (I am from Brazil). This time there was a line outside, we did wait about 45 minutes and then were able to seat. Great food: awesome pizza and the beers, oh well...nothing that needs to be sad, they are the best.

Beer is great. Food is decent, better after a few beers ; ). Just be prepared to wait. Wait for a parking place to magically appear, wait to be seated, wait to see if a server shows up, wait longer for a beer. Order two because if your ordered food you are definitely in for the long haul. If you... More

Hey. So you're finally making it to Russian River, huh? Lucky you. I think it's a bit of a misnomer having to review this place as a restaurant, because I was there for the beer. However, I will say that the food was pretty fantastic. It's essentially a great pizza place. We had the beer bites (Jasper style) app (basically... More

For a late morning snack on Jan. 1st, we dropped in at Russian River Brewing Company. Arrival is a hoot, as they have security guys to check customers' IDs before you enter, and everything is organized in lines as if they were expecting hordes. One of our party was eager to try Pliny the Elder, a 2x-strength IPA that was... More

Stopped by just to get some famous Pliney the Elder to go...not as good as it was before. Skip it and find some place else it is over priced and only average.
