Celebrating our 7th anniversary in 2023, Santa Rosa breweries and Visit Santa Rosa have combined forces again to create the Santa Rosa Beer Passport, your guide to explore the world-class craft beer scene in Santa Rosa. The entire month of FeBREWary is a ground-breaking celebration of craft beer and community from Santa Rosa breweries and is produced in conjunction with the SF Beer Week.
FeBREWary honors and celebrates Santa Rosa’s brewing heritage, showcases artisan producers in the craft beer industry, educates the greater public, and unites those who make local beer with fans who love it.
Meet some of Santa Rosa's top brewmasters in this Visit Santa Rosa blog post.

Pliny The Younger Limited Bottle Release
The 2023 Pliny the Younger release date has been officially moved to a new spring date. This year, Pliny the Younger will be available at the Russian River Brewing Company (RRBC) brewpubs in Santa Rosa and Windsor. Official pub release dates are March 24th — April 6th, 2023.
Each guest will be given a custom, uniquely colored and dated wristband upon entering the pub. These wristbands have 4 pull-tabs to be redeemed for the ability to purchase 3 – 10 oz. pours and 2 bottles of Pliny the Younger. There is a limit of 3 draft Youngers PER GUEST, and these are non-transferable! However, if you do not want to buy your 2 bottles, you can transfer your allocation to friends in your party.
Bottles will only be available in RRBC brewpubs during the 2-week release March 24th- April 6th, 2023. Bottles will not be released online or available in RRBC Gift Shops (just the pubs) and sold on a first come, first served basis. As in year’s past, there is a 2-bottle limit per person. RRBC allocates a certain amount of bottles each day at both pubs to ensure that they last for all 14 days. Please note there is a possibility that they could run out on particularly busy days. Russian River Brewing Company always say there are 2 things they cannot control—the weather and how many people show up on any given day.
RRBC will continue to distribute kegs of Younger in February 2023 to their draft accounts throughout California, Oregon, Colorado, Philadelphia, and now Reno!
