Lagunitas has been making waves in the craft beer space for decades. Founder Tony Magee started small and furiously independent, grew into one of the largest craft breweries, and recently became the latest independent label to sell to a major beer company. In the Christmas of 1992, Magee got a homebrew kit that changed his life forever. A year later he was selling kegged beer to his neighborhood bars. When Lagunitas Brewing Company started in 1993, it was based in Lagunitas, California. Just one year later, Magee moved to Petaluma, California and never looked back.
