Yes, Go is production ready.

I would especially recommend using Go for projects for which the language and its extensive standard library are sufficient out of the box. For other projects I would decide case by case, but would prefer Go to any other compiled language.

I don't know about large production environments using Go besides Google and the Google App Engine. There are many smaller organizations using it for production code though.
