Did you make it to alvarado street out of interest? Monterey bit of a destination now as it had fieldwork beer garden too!
We didn't but we had some of the beers in SF and loved them - especially the sour we had...the name escapes me though.

Boy this is a little awkward watching this after the buyout...by Heineken..
+Tanner J Hofer they were half bought by then already! The full buyout was...a surprise.

there's a term for that unchanged bit of the taproom: it's a dive bar. weird kooky stuff, lots of wood paneling and a wooden bar in a darkly lit room. seems like Lagunitas' dive bar haha.
it felt a bit like one too! Lots of dudes in beards who looked like they been drinking since birth.

You know, I was really weirded out when Lagunitas sold out. Then again, I did not like the IPA, or at least not in the state that it was in when it arrived in Sweden. Really only liked Little Sumpin, but loved that tbh. Thing is, after this little clip I have an adjusted view. I still will not really seek out Lagunitas unless I know it is really fresh or something, but when I, one day, make my way to Cali, I will stop by there. Cause I did not really know about the range (or the shack) before because I did not really care. Now I am intrigued. Cheers for that!
Yeah we were really surprised to see how "small" the company feels despite its size. The offices were cramped, the people friendly, the bar full of awesome people. It's just the tanks that are huge and frightening! We still really wish Heineken had nothing to do with them, but we love the beer and the people we met.

I'm from the Bay Area but most of my favorite beers come from breweries north of San Francisco. (Like, way north in some cases) But if you end up going that way too there's a few in the Mendocino area, plus Anderson Valley and Six Rivers which, if I remember correctly, are even more out-of-the-way. But I did just go to Fieldwork in Berkeley for the first time this weekend and I definitely recommend them! And also, I said this on their video when they first said they were coming to CA, there are also some good ones in the direction of Sacramento, like Sudwerk's in Davis. Not that I'm biased from living in Davis for 5 years or anything ;) (But actually their Marzan is so good my dad has me pick up a keg of it whenever my parents have a big party lol)
yeah what he said too.

SD - Stone, Ballast Point, Green Flash, Pizza Port PASO ROBLES - Firestone Walker(My top choice) SF - Anchor(A landmark Brewery) The list goes on :P

Lagunitas doesn't belong on a craft beer channel, being 50% owned by Heineken. Even the Brewers Association doesn't classify them as such. Buying "craft beer" from one of the giants defeats the purpose for me, since half the reason I buy craft beer is to support small local businesses.
haha, we're happy with the size and having guys like you support the little guys on Youtube! Craft beer is still niche so we're expecting to grow as the breweries do but we're just lucky to get to travel and taste amazing beers. We aint gonna sell to Heineken though, that's for sure.
Robert Kwolek (1 year ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel I get that completely. Being a small business co-owner myself, I tend to be more adamant about supporting small companies, though on the flip side I also understand the temptation to sell to a larger company. You guys make great content, btw. Honestly I can't understand why the channel isn't bigger.
Totally get where you're coming from Robert and we all have our codes. We definitely strive to put emphasis and support the smaller guys - hence why Lagunitas got a short beer log, but we have big features on Russian River and Bear Republic coming. That said, we personally don't define craft beer by strict ownership or size numbers – we think you have to decide on a case-by-case basis or else you get tangled in all sorts of hypocrisies and moral dilemmas. While Lagunitas continues to act like a sustainable, friendly business we'll keep drinking their beers. Same for Goose, Camden, Del Borgo et al. If that changes (and Goose is starting to do some very questionable things here in the UK) then we will stop featuring them completely.

Only tried the IPA which is wonderful, but any brewery with a picture of, Jerry Garcia on the wall, gets a big thumbs up from me.
haha, a good system to have
