Handcrafted Beers in the heart of Wine Country
Pliny the Elder is worth the wait. We went at 3:30 on a Sunday and only waited 10 min. Food is delicious and happy hour is all day on Sunday's! You can't go wrong at Russian River Brewing Company.
This brewpub is definitely worth a little detour. Take a sampler and find out which of 18 beers you like best. Then have your growler filled with your favorite. Great bites too.
The best thing about This place is obviously the world-class beer but their prices are a close second. Very reasonably-priced pints and pours. Oh, and eat some Pliny Bites. Yesss.
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.
RRB have some the Highest Rated Beers in the World!! The Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger are rated #2 and #3 on BeerAdvocate.com You must definitely try some of their Craft Belgian Beers on Tap!
Enter the line for a table and go get dinner elsewhere. They'll text you when your table is ready about an hour and a half later. The tasting platter is an amazing experience and great value.
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.
The sampler is so cheap that they're basically paying you to taste 18 beers. After the sampler, get seconds of the sweet Belgians, and Pliny. The sours of the sampler will accentuate their sweetness.
Stop here! Pliny the Elder is the best IPA you'll have. Get a taster of Supplication, Consecration & Temptation, their line-up of sours aged in Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay barrels!
All belgium drinks come in a specific cup size so you don't need to tell your waiter/waitress the pint size you desire. It will save you time and it will also make sure you won't look like a noob.
This place is packed in the evenings and boasts performances from local musicians. Perfect for those looking for a lively evening. For a quieter beer tasting experience, visit during the afternoon.
Super great atmosphere all the time. Just moved here and I'm definitly going to be a regular. I'll sample a new beer every time, but the sampler is great if you come for a single visit.
I love/hate this place. Beers are fantastic. Staff is arrogant and indifferent. Why not make it easier to order food outside? Well, because they're usually packed, anyway, so who gives a shit?...
One of the finest craft breweries in the country. They master many styles including IPAs and sours. Don't overlook other beers to get Pliny the Elder, others are fantastic too!
Amazing!! There could be a line to get in but worth the wait. Extremely good beer and good food. Get the sampler if you've never been
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.
I just wish it wasn't always so busy! But the constant crowds speak volumes for just how cool this place is! Beer SO GREAT their food could be crap but its also GREAT!
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.
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.
Sampler is intense! 18, I had 19, beers for $15. Beer bites are awesome and a perfect compliment. Loved the "ation" beers...supplication is a favorite!
Grab a sampler flight which will give you 2oz pours of every single one of their beers on tap. It's well worth doing and very affordable too!
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"
Amazing how consistently slow the food is. The beer is fantastic, and the bartenders are super cool. But the food is sooooo slow. It has been this way for years. Meh.
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 cheese...you will be glad you did.
Try the beer flight (duh). Pizzas are good too! Get there early because the line gets really long.
If they ran it like a business they could make 1000 times more than they do now. Total chaos. Hire some managers who went to UNLV hospitality school. More workers standing around back bs'ing
One box of 12 bottles of Pliny per person. Two growler max per person but can only use their growlers.
The sampler is awesome! The chicken wings are great but super spicy (we had the medium) almost too spicy for me but went well with the beer!
The sampler of beer is a delightful way to experience everything they have to offer. Tasty food as well.
"Pliny Bites" is on the menu but somehow isn't a breakfast cereal for the kids of beer-loving parents. (It's a cheese pizza sliced into tiny slices.)
I always spend way too much when I come here. Bring a full wallet because everything is worth trying!
Get a pliny, but the sours are the best. Amazing atmosphere but be prepared to wait to get in.
Consecration (dark sour) is so good. Line to get inside, along with a wait for a table, can be very long. But so worth it...
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.
Awesome beer (and pizza), but go on off hours, it can get VERY busy. Worth the wait, but it's sometimes a long one.
Only waited for 45 min for Pliny The Younger. Try a week night after 7:30 for a short wait b
Even if it's not your first time, the sampler just can't be beat. 19 two-ounce pours of RRBC's best for $16!!
Awesome beer selection. Get the flight where you can taste every beer. Very affordable too. The Pliny is AWESOME!!
Tables outside are first-come, first-serve. It can get really crowded here on Saturday afternoon. Great beer though!!
Quite possibly the best barrel aged Belgian style ales in the country! And their IPA doesn't suck either!
The 'Rejection' Belgian-inspired Black Ale is outstanding. Served around Valentines Day only. A darker alternative to their lighter/hoppier brews.
If you're coming for the Pliney the Younger release get to the brewery AT LEAST an hour before they open... And bring a chair...
My all time favorite company. Try anything. Try everything. You won't be disappointed!
Nice vibe. Prepare to wait outside if you come during Pliny The Younger release period.
Awesome place, but don't get too loud in conversation, security will come tell you to keep it down (that was weird!).
So many beers of different types. Gotta have Pliny the Elder as well add some of their sours. Great food as well.
