Continuing on with my Cali beer adventures, I headed south from Santa Rosa to the little town of Petulma home of the Lagunitas Brewing Company. After Russian River I was looking even more forward to my visit to Lagunitas not to mention that the taproom came highly recommended as a ‘must visit’ by fellow beer enthusiasts.
So Lagunitas Brewing Company is pretty easy to locate; it is just east of highway 101 in an industrial-heavy area outside the downtown core. After pulling into a fairly generic row of buildings I spotted the tell-tale signs of a brewery i.e. a bunch of kegs in a fenced off area and a big bottle cap emblazoned with the Lagunitas logo. There were several buildings comprising the brewery including the brewing facility, offices and the taproom, which I learned the hard way is CLOSED on Mondays 😦
Needless to say this put a bit of a hitch in my plans so I took a few requisite pictures of what indeed looked like a fun taproom and did a little window shopping. As it was destination San Francisco for me and hubby-to-be I opted not to camp out in the parking lot and wait for the taproom to open its’ doors. For those, like me, who have not had the pleasure of visiting Lagunitas in person this virtual tasting is for you:
Well onward and upward my beer drinking friends, my Cali beer search continues…
