A good variety of special microbrews including a 19 beer sampler! With all that beer you need food. RRBC has a great menu with a variety of sandwiches, pizzas and appetizers. A must stop for any beer aficionado!

It is a local and fan popular spot and so is rarely not crowded. Large selection of beers with Pliny the Elder, the double IPA being quite well known. However, it is the limited release of Pliny the Younger (triple IPA) which really draws the crowds (hours long) for 2 weeks of the year in February. Some of the other... More

This place is alway full. Need to make line. Food is good and the beers are great. I seat with my little son and we had nice dinner. I recommend this place for family gathering. Informal seating to relax and unwind.

We were terribly treated by the hostess, the service was so bad, we decided not stay. It was a shame, because the beer is very good, but no worth it.

Came here for the beer and had dinner as well. The beer is fantastic. If you are a craft beer lover you have Pliny the Elder and a Blind Pig IPA. the food was ok but nothing worth recommending.

If you are any where in the vicinity of Santa Rosa and love craft beer then you already know that Russian River Brewing is the west coast equivalent of Vermont's Alchemist. Pliny the Elder ( and younger, which is very limited) is one of the holy grails of brew. A CA IPA, it's a great beer. Their menu also includes... More

I was in Santa Rosa for business, and I happened upon this amazing beer nirvana. It's list in the 70's, which I love. I was introduced to "Pliny the Elder" a very drinkable double IPA. I was late in the season to get their "Pliny the Younger" their legendary Triple IPA. But my favourite beers were the "sours". These beers... More

Honestly I did not eat here I just wanted to buy some of the famous Pliny the Elder to take home. The place has a busy exciting bar atmosphere and I kind of wish I had eaten there but, it was busy and I was in a hurry. I look forward to going back.

You go for the beer! Drink some there; buy some to go. Be sure to also try Blind Pig. This is a beer drinkers shrine. Do not miss it. We get to Sonoma County once a year and and RRB is a must stop.

it's loud and crowded; tables on top of one another and a menu that you would expect in a bar. good food, but the beer is the reason to go. they brew Pliny the Elder, which my friends raved about -- and took home two cases. they have beer flights as well. there are many better food choices in santa...
