Surprisingly there doesn't seem to be much information/testimonials on using RabbitMQ with Rails so I was hoping to hear some advice from others who may have traveled down this path. Could you explain your use case?

I'd say that the deciding factor would likely by how well it fits with
the rest of your application in terms of structure--so for example,
Rails is almost entirely (modulo some new features in the unreleased
Rails 4) synchronous, so Bunny would likely be the better choice in that
case. On the other hand, if you are creating a specific consumer
application, then Eventmachine and the AMQP would likely be the better
choice. But as with anything, it'd likely be worth doing a spike to see
how well it fits with your use case.
