Sonoma County Ordered to Shut Down Indoor Drinking and Dining Operations

We just received the official news that Sonoma County is the latest county in California to be ordered to shut down several business operations again, including indoor drinking and dining. All bars, brewery taprooms, winery tasting rooms, restaurants and brewpubs must discontinue indoor service effective at midnight tonight, July 12th, and may only serve alcohol to patrons seated outside in conjunction with the purchase of a meal. This order has been enacted to help slow the spread of the coronavirus and will remain in place until at least August 2nd.

What does this mean for RRBC? We are pretty much just going back to what we were doing before reopening last month with a couple of modifications. The City of Santa Rosa recently closed 4th Street to help Downtown restaurants provide more outdoor dining options for our customers. We are fully planning to take advantage of this opportunity as soon as our patio furniture arrives and the required permit is issued. In the meantime, we will continue to offer outdoor dining only at our 5 patio tables. Pizza and beer to go is still an excellent option! Pub hours are M-Th 11AM-9PM, F/S/S 11AM-10PM. You can find the pub menu here:

Our Windsor pub will remain open for food and beer TO GO with no table service inside or outside. We will, however, set up some tables in the courtyard near the parking lot for anyone who wants to enjoy their takeout meal onsite. The Beer Garden will remain closed until the meal requirement is lifted again. Pub hours are M-Th 3PM-8PM, F/S/S 11AM-8PM at least for now. The Windsor Gift Shop will remain open daily 11AM-7PM. Here is the Windsor menu for takeout:

We will continue to ship beer direct to consumers throughout California until further notice on a weekly basis. Pliny for President is becoming a more regular fixture in our online offerings and will continue to appear at both pubs! Both Pliny for President and Black is Beautiful are sold out online but will still be released at our pubs on Tuesday July 14th. The next batch of Pliny for President cans will be released both online and at the breweries on July 24th!

I think that’s it for now. Will continue to keep you posted as the situation develops. In the meantime, from all of us here at RRBC, we hope that you and your family and friends are staying healthy and well through these challenging times!
