A top notch brewery located in Petaluma, CA. They have a mostly outdoor restaurant/beer garden. Inside is a bar and a few tables. Outside is a large area consisting of a lot of picnic tables. It's a fantastic place to sit and enjoy a beer on a beautiful day. The food menu is pretty small, mostly consisting of some appetizers and some panini hot pressed sandwiches. The food was decent. They have about a dozen of their beers on tap. They do pints as well as samplers. I didn't see any quest taps. They also have a store on-site and they do tours periodically throughout the day. A great place to go and enjoy the great beers made by Lagunitas.

This is my favorite tour in the Bay Are. Make sure you go during the weekday, because that tour includes tastings. Basically, they take you up to their tasting room and tell you great stories while giving you about as much beer as you should drink (large tasters of many of their beers). At the end of the tour, they let you grab a bottle of beer from their bottling line, like Laverne and Shirley (I heard they stopped doing this though).

Its always a great atmosphere and usually there is a live band. The prices are always very reasonable and the beers are great.

Truly great place to hang out.

I love their beer, but HATE the open seating policy. The place is so popular that no matter when you go it's very difficult to get a table because you can't make reservations. I really wish this wasn't the case, because I would be there very regularly. Instead I usually avoid the headache and buy the beer in the store, unless I am meeting a group because they take reservations for groups.

My wife and I went here on an anniversary road trip. shes a good beer wife. Although the tour was quick and the tap room closed we decided to try the tour. The tour was not so impressive but what was impressive was the beer as usual but more the story behind Lagunitas that I never knew. The tour guide was great, the old tap room even cooler but the stories where the best. Under Cover Shut Down, High "Astronaut man"!!! A Little Sumpin Sumpin!!! The Waldos!!! Censored AKA: The Kronik!!! Never have I been on a tour that provided some much down to earth, anecdotal, realistic, informative information about the brewery, owner and conception. We spent most of our time in the tap room asking our guide questions which she eagerly answered and provided history. I now have some truths and some myths to share with my friends and now I feel like a part of the tribe. Ill keep making up my own stories about some...
