Lagunitas is a must stop in wine country for the beer connoisseur, especially the hophead. It's located on the edge of a pretty laid back rural town and that's what makes it something special. We drove from Sac, and it's a gorgeous trek if you get off the interstate early.

Try to make it on a nice day (not too tough to come by in this region), because the courtyard is where it's at. There's live music nearly every day, it started when we arrived at around 3pm on a Sunday. This place seemed busy when we showed up.... that was nothing. It only got busier, a popular spot for sure!

The beers are served in mason jars, which is different. It shoves aside proper beer presentation, which I thought was a statement of how confident they are with their brews. The offerings are typically geared to the lupalin freak, which is awesome. My fiancee likes the lighter sweeter stuff, but she fared alright (she came because I wanted to anyways). They had four IPAs on tap.... yea, four (4)! God bless Lagunitas. Pints were five bucks. Tasters (four 4oz glasses) were seven bucks, not bad.

The food is pretty limited, but don't come here for the food. A half dozen appetizers and panini sandwiches round out the solid diet items. I got a good sized panini for $10, it was decent.

The service is a tough one to rate. Service is going to be slow if you don't venture to the bar yourself (even that is typically packed), that's just the way it is, this is a busy place. But when there's several tables laid out potluck style and no real rhyme or reason to what's going on, you gotta cut 'em some slack. After all, even though the food and beer don't come quickly, the musician on stage isn't taking a break, so enjoy yourself. Everyone is friendly, including the dogs which are welcome, so watch your step.
