California place rating number 400.
Visited many times since RBSG 2009.
We were literally the first customers through the door at the new tasting room. The paint was still drying and they tapped the first cask for us. Iíve been back just as a quick stop to try some new beers and to enjoy the sun and company and music. The employees are all very nice and like to hang out and talk. They do live music on some days and they always have new beers to try. Their hoppy beers are always good but they do some other good stuff like the farmhouse gueuze (the blended funky saison). The food is pretty good but itís just snack/pub food. Awesome place and awesome stop on the way to/from Russian River.

Tucked in an industrial area just off of 101. Can be easy to drive past if youíve never been before. The beer garden area is really cool. Big outdoor area with long picnic tables, a covered patio with more tables, and a decent size indoor bar area. Some nice tap only beers available at the bar, usually at least one special cask on as well. Service can be kind of spotty, but usually pretty good. Flights are well priced.

April 2008 We popped in on this industrial micro unannounced and at least an hour off their advertised tour timeline. But nonetheless, we were greeted with warm receptiveness and an impromptu short tour of their bulging-at-the-seems brewery. What a friendly crowd! An original micro, growing so much theyíre stretching their waist size, but still living up to the small guy cool factor (What we wished Sierra Nevada was like). All the way nice. Lagunitas is now officially my default Fridge IPA. Way to go. (Brewery #456, 4/10/2008)

(Visited 06/2013): Lagunitas is in Petaluma on N McDowell in an industrial area, just a few minutes away from the Redwood Freeway. Parking lots adjacent to the buildings.
The Lagunitas complex consists of the brewery, beer garden, store and bar. Very laid back atmosphere, and the whole "420" thing permeates so to speak. The beer garden has communal benches and a stage, and the bar is relatively small with red walls, funky decor and wood, and a chalk board listing the available beers.
As for the beers there are around 20 house beers on draught plus a firkin. This included several staple beers like Censored, IPA and Gnarley Wine plus some unique offerings like Kriek, Gueuze, Brandy Barrel Aged Stout and SoCo Stout on my visit. The beers are all solid, and samplers are available.
Service at the bar was good. I was served by a few different bartenders and they all knew the beer and were friendly. Tours are available as well.
I did not have any food on this visit.
Overall this is a highly recommended place to visit north of San Francisco.

Nice venue. Sadly the multitude of taps only had readily available ales*, and the beer engines were not hooked up. It seems to be the equivalent of a local. Kind of dark; horseshoe bar, casual everything. Wish I lived nearby. Note: At 2 PM parking was very, very unavailable. Just tooled around a bit til someone pulled out.
*Ditto for bottles in the shop.

On a sunny day, the beer garden here is probably the coolest place to hang out that I have been to in America so far. Like Bavaria come to Northern CA. Lovely place, with all kinds of activities going on, decent food, lots of inexpensive beers to choose from, fun, fun fun. The beer selection is limited to their stuff, though there were like 15 on tap. If I lived nearby, Iíd hang here whenever the weather was nice.

Might have just found beer heaven. Awesome beer garden. Flights of 4 brews for under 6 bucks. And itís Lagunitas, so the beer rocks.

Visited on august 16, 2009. The new pub is not finished, but they are serving beer (kitchen should open in a few months..they where serving warmed hot-dogs for 5$). I was told this will be a quite modern place, with heated seats for winter months....but right now, it is still makeshift, but very promising. They do offer a sampler of their regular beers, but, asking very nicely, i managed to get the seasonals and one-offs, alas in plastic 5 on cups...free peanuts, live music on the terrasse, friendly service by tattooed maidens...its all good.

Stopped by here on our way to Russian River, right off the highway its worth seeing to see the sheer size of the their operation, really surprised me... Big patio with tons of seating, inside a bit corny and drab... They had mostly widely available brews but did have 3 one offs to tick, average quality as to be expected. Light snack fare for free, but had some of the best salsa and avocado Iíve had. Service was bad, slow and inattentive. Go but have low expectations as I did and youíll have fun.

We stopped past on a very sunny afternoon on our way to Santa Rosa. There is a large, laid-back outdoor area before you enter the smaller indoor bar. Ambience and atmosphere is spot on - if we were not on my way to Santa Rosa we could easily of chilled here all day. There were 15 Lagunitas beers on draft, with 5 seasonals/specials including Cruising with Ruben and the Bretts. We opted for some 4oz sampler trays, a great way to try all of their beers. Value was very good. Food looked tasty, but we did not indulge. They also do regular tours and have a decent shop for merchandise. A great place for a sunny day and the best place to drink Lagunitas.
