Fantastic beers and burgers. Cheese plate good too. Fabulous service, beautiful outdoor seating, and a bluegrass band...what's not to like? (139 characters)

My wife and I made a special trip out to Petaluma to visit the Lagunitas beer garden after a full day of hiking at the Point Reyes Seashore and had an absolutely lovely time. They offer tours (which we weren't able to take but I've heard are great), but the reason to visit is their beer garden. It's set up family style with a number of picnic tables so you just grab a seat and head up to the bar to order a pint... and you can also order food to your table. The food menu is a bit limited but tasty, and the beer garden is phenomenal. Great selection, with a number of 'brewery only' beers on tap (the bourbon aged imperial cappuccino stout was to die for). I wish we lived next door! (692 characters)

Beer hall type setup with large picnic benches under a giant clear tent. Inside is pretty tight and crowded by the bar. Very communal type of deal.

The beer quality is already known and pretty much speaks for itself (or mumbles). The food is similarly great in quality.

Service is so so, but that's because its pretty much always super crowded and therefore hard to get service. They're very polite and helpful when you can find them.

Selection is fantastic, they have 10-20 lagunitas beers on tap including a handful that you can't get anywhere else, or ones that are extremely rare outside the brewery. When I was there they were just starting to do some of their barrel releases before they ever hit taps or bottles elsewhere. You might get the chance to try something you won't see in stores for awhile, or at all.

Food was great. Very tasty. Very filling. My only problem was my eyes were bigger than my stomach. (921 characters)

Stopped into the brewery one afternoon while on vacation in Northern California, circa 2011. Unfortunately, we did not do our research and the brewpub was closed on the day we stopped in (I believe it was a Tuesday). However, they had a tour starting in half an hour. "Would you like to join the tour" they said. "Of course" we said. Smart choice. The tour consisted of some very generous (free) pours of just about everything they had on tap that day, along with our guide (bartender) describing the history of the brewery and some of its more well-known brews. Great vibe, and what seemed at first like it might be a bust of a trip turned out to be a great time. I can't describe the food since, well, the were not serving any. Since they were closed. I mentioned that earlier. (790 characters)
