Lagunitas Brewing Company was established in 1993 by Tony Magee in Lagunitas, California. The brewery was founded with a commitment to provide exceptional quality of beers that emphasize the town’s pride, culture and lifestyle. Lagunitas Brewing Company relocated to Petaluma, California about one year after it was established. The brewery’s IPA beer quickly gained recognition. IPA beer is often described as moderately hoppy and well balanced. Lagunita’s IPA beer was later followed with other varieties, such as Brown Shugga, Imperial Stout, Pils and Imperial Red Ale among many more. Lagunitas Brewing Company has remained true to its goal of going beyond hoppy-sweet beers.
