    If you are near here and don't come here for a beer, you fail. And by near I mean a 20 mi radius.

    Damnation is the best brew they make! You won't be disappointed...

    The beer here is consistently rated some of the best in the country. Try the Damnation or Pliny.

    Two of the 10 Best Beers in the WORLD brewed here: Consecration and Pliny the Elder

    David Teykaerts · December 3, 2011
  • Kiki D.

    Consecration, Sanctification, Damnation and on occasion Temptation..."I can resist everything except temptation" - Oscar Wilde...arguably, I can resist it - Consecration was always my tricky fish

  • schneidermike s.

    Say "ply-knee" not "plinny". The owners say that to make a distinction between the beer and the philosopher and so that it sounds cool when you order a "Tiny Pliny"

    A beer for every taste.. Get the sampler and try some drew or pliney bites!

    Erik Umenhofer · December 19, 2009

    It takes lots of beer to make great wine! Enjoy a Pliney the Elder & some Jasper Bites & feel like a local.

    Sonoma County · June 23, 2011
  • Beau H.

    Pliny the younger is very hoppy. Great nose but I still recommend the Supplication. Don't believe the hype.

    Beau Hale · February 11, 2011

    Best Beers in America!

    Go to the brewery, Sit outside on a summer day with a friend, get the sampler and have every beer on the menu. Get a pizza, "The Mikey" and ask for extra caramelized onions. Read more

    Beer beer beer! Did I mention beer? Great stuff here...

    Fabio Bonazzi Bonaca · April 6, 2014
  • Sonoma County

    Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig and Damnation. You can see the actual brew tanks in the cellar next to the bar, and the full, Italian-inspired, beer-paired menu makes lingering even more delicious. Read more

    Drink everything. As much as you can. It is rare and amazing.

    Madison Smith · April 10, 2012

    Pliny and all the -ion beers ... You can't go wrong. Great wings too.

    Batch 69 - Damnation for those of you that know what I mean...

    Matt De Fever · November 29, 2011
  • James P.

    Be patient waiting for your beer, it will be worth the wait. Of course, get the Pliny the Elder, but the Row 2 is also a must. Also, a growler of Pliny for $22 is one of the best deals of life.

    James Paul · August 13, 2013
  • André D.

    Damnation is the best beer ever!!!

    André Davis · March 3, 2013

    Row 2 Hill 56. That is all you need to know.

  • Cheri 🍓 B.

    drink Pliny the Elder. Or Pliny the Younger if it's available. Or Blind Pig. Also, eat the pizza that has the pine nuts and goat will be glad you did.

    Cheri 🍓 Berry · October 11, 2011
  • Steve S.

    Pliny the Elder is a damn great beer, but don't forget to try one of the sublime Belgian ales. My current favorite is Sanctification.

    Steve Strom · July 26, 2011

    Pliny is nice but Row 2 Hill 56 is where it's at and the sour beers are to die for.....

    Tatiana Peavey · August 14, 2014

    Outstanding selection of beers...

  • katie rose a.

    Pretty great little brewery. Every option is a classic micro brew. The pizza and cheese bread are crazy delicious. Beware of their sour beer options they are pretty terrible.

    Get a pint of Pliny the Elder. Best double IPA I've had in a long time

    Andrew Layman · September 5, 2013
  • Meg H.

    Pizza. Amazing. (Get the Megan, but w/ cheese if you're not Vegan). Beer. Even better. Service? Terrible. The host took our order. Growlers? They ran out. Better off trying their beer elsewhere.

    Meg Herbert · June 15, 2013
  • Susanne A.

    Every beer is so good it's stupid. Sour, IPA, Saison, belgian golden ale, it's ridiculous!

    Susanne Ault · February 17, 2013

    Okay holy crap. Is it Pliny the younger season? Come Monday night. Sunday was a 7 hour wait, Monday no wait at all!

    Home to Beer Advocates's Best Beer in the World, Pliny the Younger, Russian River Brewing Company is a mecca for the beer enthusiasts. Recommendation: Try the sampler to taste the range of beer types.

    Santa Rosa CVB · September 5, 2012
  • SFGate M.

    The signature is Blind Pig IPA, but check the chalkboards above the bustling bar, which list the dozens of frequently changing, seasonally inspired small-batch suds available.

    SFGate Manager · July 16, 2012
  • Bartlomiej K.

    Great beer, horrible service. This place is too popular for it's own good, but the beer is worth it.

    Bartlomiej Krol · January 17, 2012
  • Alex B.

    If it ends in's good.
