Last night Lagunitas Brewing Company opened up their employee lounge and beer garden for the Sonoma Beerocrats annual picnic. Eryn and I headed down with a couple of homebrews and hoping to have a good time. We had a great time! The folks at Lagunitas were happy to share the amazing beers they are crafting and hanging up in the lounge was a blast. After tasting through a few of the beers on tap we headed down to the beer garden for the BBQ and to taste a few things other people brought. We ended up befriending a group of folks who were out from New Zealand and tasting through a few beers they brought with them. Afternoon quickly turned to night and the picnic came to a close way to quickly. When you combine great beers, new friends and a whole lot of fun you really can’t go wrong. Do we have a date set for next year yet?
