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

My nephew had a rental Chevy Camaro SS with 454 HP. Decided to get lunch so 4 of us drove from Novato to Petaluma to Lagunitas (recommended by my daughter). What a great place. Long tables and benches outside under pop-ups and shade. GREAT Tacos...More

I've been drinking Lagunitas beers for several years now but always dreamed of going to the brewery to get some fresh brewed goodness. I was not disappointed with this place, very cool layout with sitting area and they have a dog park onsite which is...More

Not your usual Brewery, some outdoor seating and a small bar area inside, you can grab a beer wander around and check things out. The food was better than expected and Lagunitas Beer always a pleaser.

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.
