My keg ran out and decided to take it back and stay and have a few. Nice time it was crowded as usual . Love the atmosphere especially the free live music. Also the space is uber dog friendly. And that’s a plus. Did not...More

Lagunitas is a must visit brewery if you enjoy beer. They have many selections you can't get at the store and the food is excellent. Try the buffalo burger. It's delicious.

Chilly rainy day and the whole area inside and out was freezing as they leave doors open inside to extend to outdoor area. Service was good. Cute store with lots of T-shirt’s and items. Had nachos which was nothing amazing.

This place has a great set up, indoor and outdoor sitting locations. A place for a band and dancing but there are way to many people that go here. The beer is good but you can get it almost anywhere and the food is good...More

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.

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.
