Lagunitas is one of our favorite local breweries, so we were excited to see that Lauren shared a story about her experience at the taproom.
My husband loves Lagunitas brewery, so we finally stopped by the brewery/taproom in Petaluma! Usually for my taste their beer is a little too hoppy and over powering, but while we were there, I found two beers that I really liked: their Farmhouse Gueuze and a Little Sumpin Wild. The Farmhouse Gueuze was almost like sour beer with lots of floralness and tartness. It is actually aged in wine barrels and picks up some of the wine flavor as well, definitely a very interesting beer. The Little Sumpin Wild is a Belgian Style Strong Ale, but doesn't taste like it. It's high in alcohol and since it's fermented with Belgian yeast, it is full of fun flavors. Of course, neither one of these are bottled, so I can only get them at the taproom, but that is what growlers are for. Most breweries have personalized swing-top bottles, not Lagunitas they keep it simple with giant ball canning jars and a sticker on the lid! If you have a brewery close, see if they have growlers, the beer is always so much better fresh from the tap!
