While on an extended day trip I stopped at the Lagunitus Brewery!! Church that off my list! It's not close to me but on this trip it's a great afternoon stop. Ordered the Brat lunch and a pint of Erotica. Then for desert a pint...More

Bustling micro brew eatery adjacent to the brewery. Not fancy but a wide range of fine craft beers. Many with strong hops accents, but a good stout, too. Typical bar food but quality is good and just right for a fun meal out..

Second time at Lagunita's. Excellent and fun tours, large beer selection and live music. Nice outdoor area. Best of all are the people who work there. Professional, energetic and happy. Always fun.

Very enjoyable afternoon at the Lagunitas Brewing Co. Great music by Firewheel on Saturday! No cover or drink minimum requirement! Good beer and tasty sausages. Good service and ambience for people watching, dancing, and toe tapping. Seating at large picnic tables.

Free music while you have a beer tasting and yummy food. Whats not to like? Diverse crowd old young skinny fat all dancing. Love this. Siot outside under shade cloth and listen to local music (often inlcuding name musicians).

The beer garden is a great outdoor location, even in inclement weather. The beer is yummy and super hoppy. The food is basic and good tasting, but nothing to write home about. Overall, you will love this place for the location and the service. I...More

This is a fun place with live entertainment! Food is average. Go in good weather as mostly outdoors. Watch out you don't trip As you walk between rows of tables. I tripped and got badly bruised. Good beer but wine choices limited.

Yes indeed. There is a huge grassy area where you can put blankets out and hangout or you can seat everyone at the tables or bar.
Will this be busy on a friday for lunch?

You might want to call the brewery to be sure, but I haven't seen a huge noonish crowd during other days of the week. Lagunitas is located a drive away from the main part of downtown Petaluma (not walking distance) and has... More
Hello, everyone. I'm going to San Francisco next month, and I would like to visit Lagunitas Brewery. But, there's a little problem: I don't drive. So, I'm seeking some advice about a one-day round-trip to there by public transportation. I'm aware of Golden Gate Transit and Route 101, and that it's better to go on weekdays, because transport services on weekends are more scarce, and I'm ok with it. I'm realy intending to go on a weekday. The next think is: from the Copeland Street Transit Mall stop on Lagunistas, how difficult is it to get a taxi/cab? I'm not sure I will be able to call a service by phone. And specially, coming back from Lagunitas. Do you thing getting a taxi on these 2 places would be some trouble? And, considering I would return to SF at evening, would it be safe? I mean, being on the stop alone waiting for the bus, or even if I need to get around the place, to ask for some help/information, things like that? Could anyone who really knows the place help me out and give me some advice on that? Thank you, very much.
