Our family loves this place! Always clean, friendly and you can bring your dog and/or kids. Outdoor seating is like a backyard BBQ that you didn't not have to cook for or clean up after. I highly recommend the beer "flights." The servers will even...More

Enjoyed couple seats at the bar with my wife. We split the around the world sampler with 16 five once tasters. Very good price for this. Great swag store and service all around.

Cool place. We arrived too late to take the tour but it looks like it would be really interesting. Just had a beer. Place closes early so make sure you check.

Food was decent, beer was good, staff were very good and attentive. We didn't make it to do the tour but would consider it another time. Has a large beer garden outside and live music. Pick up a shirt or souvenier in the gift shop.

As long as you have a designated driver, this is a really fun day trip from San Francisco. We arrived by noon and it was already pretty busy and hot. I would recommend getting there a little earlier so you can sit on the inside,...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.
