russian river brewing company

the bar at russian river

last weekend TM, JVG, JC, and I went disc golfing at novato.  however, before a disc was tossed we made a detour toward santa rosa for a couple brews at russian river brewing company.

  • one of my favorite things about the russian river pub (aside from all their on-premises conditioning and barrels) is the huge new albion sign hanging above the bar.  for a little brewing history, check out these articles on Jack McAuliffe and new albion.

  • JVG ordered up the O.V.L. stout, TM and I picked up an emprircal 7 saison (sessionable, but not remarkable), and JC couldnt decide, so he ordered the taster.
  • the waiter brought back the most impressive taster I have ever seen – 14 beers were lined up for sampling!  it gave all of us a chance to try some beers that we woudn’t have otherwise been able to order up.

  • after sampling a mulitude of offerings, I couldn’t help but go back to one of my favorites – temptation.  JVG and JC each ordered up a consecration.
  • the best part of the trip?  on sundays, all beers are $3.25 all day!
  • after unsuccessfully trying to convince the waiter to fill me a growler of temptation, we rolled out of russian river towards petaluma… (to be continued!)
