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!

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.

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.
