This is an updated rating. The first time I visited three years ago it was an unpleasant experience. This past time, however, the place was clean, the people were fun, the music was great, and the beer was both fully stocked on the taps and fresh as could be. Now one of my favorite places to visit when in Northern CA.

Pretty cool place. Petaluma is not a big city, but I was happy to stop at Lagunitas on the way back from Russian River; I recommend you do that if you visit Russian River, by the way. Anyways, a band was playing the night my brother and I visited. There was this building on the left, which was the brewery, and then a path lead to a "beer garden" type area (where the band was playing). Walking through that you hit a somewhat small open bar area. They had Ryanís Folly on tap, Sour Trifecta (which I donít see listed as a Lagunitas beer), and some other beers, such as W.T.F. Service was fairly nice. I am glad they still adhere to the old peanuts and pretzel courtesy. Served some of their drinks in jars. I wasnít overly impressed or anything, but if visiting it is definitely worth paying a visit and grabbing some Lagunitas beers that arenít generally available.

Had a great time at the Lagunitas Brew Pub. sat outside in the pleasantly decorated beer garden. There was a decent band playing mostly covers, and Little Sumpiní Extra on tap. The small room with the beer, seemed like an afterthought, but the beer (even if servend in a plastic cup), and the ambiance outside more than made up for it. Selection was small, and entirely made up of Lagunitas if I recall correctly.

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 peanuts, live music on the terrasse, friendly service by tattooed maidens...its all good.

Within walking distance from work, we had always dreamed of a day when we could go over for a beer after work. Now its here, with their new patio. Nicely landscaped yard with a small stage for bands to play. They had at least 7 beers on tap and another 5-6 in bottles avail. Sassy but quick waitress kept em coming. $4/12 oz plastic cup was better than the $5 I was expecting. Someone had a bad sandwich, but they are remodeling and adding a kitchen as I type this. They also have comp peanuts & pretzels. So my food review should change shortly. Since my initial review, they have added sandwiches, nachos and other foods...all pretty good with nice low prices. They now have great glasses instead of plastic cups. Free peanuts and pretzels! Beer garden is always packed and lively with bands and lots of talk...people often share tables with strangers and leave with new friends.. The tour is great, they keep pouring as long as you keep drinking. Sometimes they pull out some pretty cool/unexpected stuff.

Before visiting lagunitas during RBSG, I was admittedly on the fence about there beers. I still just think that they are OK to good, but damn, I love the brewery. The little patio setup is very relaxing, and we got one of the most fun tours ever. If you thought the Censored (Kronic) label was telling, just wait until you see the brewery. They also have an amazingly high-tech and awesome looking brew system that is really cool to check out if you are into the more technical side of things. Walking through everything is like exploring a steel cave. Iím still trying to figure out how they got all that stuff in there. Nice guys too, and they put out a great spread of complimentary beers for us.

Stopped by on the RBSG tour. This place has a real funky feel to it, which I really like, and a nice outside garden area to hang out in. Very generous with the beer and an excellent tour of the facility, The brewhouse is very impressive. worth making a stop if you are in the area.

You actually visit the industrial compound of the brewery. Do not expect a brew pub or beer bar, you are at the factory and the tastings are in a small, cozy, second floor room. I arrived late , and could not do the tour. However, the staff (Ron) was very nice, and he let us sample the beers and gave us a couple of bottles to take home. They are actually opening a brew pub next thurdsay so things will change a lot.
