The guide Caleb was super cool, very knowledgeable on the history of SF, Anchor Steam and brewing beer in general. We really enjoyed walking around the facility, although be forewarned for older folks, there is about 5 flights... More

Amazing that all their beer for the US & International sales is made in this historic old building. The place has a feeling if old time history. After the tour... More

Mike was a great tour guide and really knew his stuff. The tour is very thorough as we got to see the process from beginning to end. The tastings at the end were a great way to finish off the tour.

The Anchor Brewing tour was a wonderful for experience for me and my 7 friends. We learned a lot about the beer we loved and felt more connected to the product and its' SF roots. The happy hour setting for the final hour was a wonderful opportunity to taste different varieties and catch up with one another. Our host, Joey,... More

We had such a fun time on our tour. Our guide Caleb was informative, funny, and connected with all the guests on the tour. I would highly recommend this as a part of your trip in San Francisco (especially if you like beer!) Also it is located near the Missions district where you can grab some amazing Mexican food after... More
