Russian River Brewing Company was established in 1997 by Korbel Champagne Cellars among the majestic redwoods in West Sonoma County. After 6 years, Korbel decided to get out of the beer business and agreed to transfer the brand and all recipes to their head brewer, Vinnie Cilurzo. Vinnie and his wife, Natalie, were excited to pursue their passion for craft beer together and opened their first brewpub in Santa Rosa in April 2004.

FEATURED BEERS


Double Dry-Hopped Double/Imperial IPA

Pliny the Elder was one the of the first commercially brewed Double IPA’s created by Vinnie in 1999 while the brewery was still owned by Korbel Winery.  In 2020, we brewed Pliny for President by taking the original recipe and adding a 2 step double dry-hop (DDH) process. This beer was a huge hit with not only beer enthusiasts but the entire RRBC crew!  So we decided to bring it back in 2021 with DDH Pliny the Elder.  The original Pliny and DDH Pliny both have the same hop bill, while the amount dry hops is roughly doubled in the DDH Pliny. The original Pliny is dry-hopped on day 7 with about 2 pounds per barrel, and DDH Pliny is dry-hopped on day 1 and again on day 6 for a total of about 4 pounds per barrel.  This double dry-hopping process adds even more flavor, complexity, hop aroma and freshness to the beer.
