Fodor's Expert Review Ernie's Tin Bar
Petaluma Bars/Pubs Fodor's Choice
Ramshackle Ernie's shares a corrugated tin building with a frozen-in-time roadside garage, with part of the bar actually in the garage. Mounted stag heads and a toothy wild boar watch over this rural-neighborhood hangout with a long, narrow bar, a patio outside, and Pliny the Elder and another 20 or so brews on tap. Signs everywhere ban cellphone use, though patrons and even staffers occasionally flout them.
