Couple in our early 30s. We left booking Alcatraz to the very last minute, and the only tickets left were combos like this. We chose the early trip to Alcatraz to get the most out of it... Alcatraz was incredible, as expected. A couple of hours on the island was just enough time for the (very captivating) self-guided audio tour and time to take in the sights outside. The self-guided tour was really moving at times. It didn't feel too rushed . An unexpected bonus on the island was an art exhibition in one of the old factory houses. It displayed photo IDs created by former/current inmates and what they dream of becoming. We got back with little time to grab some lunch and head to the beer tour... I'll admit: we were considering (and very close to) bailing before the beer tour as we were getting pretty tired by this point... ... but I'm so glad we didn't! We arrived at the first stop and greeted by our wonderful tour guide, Henrique. I gather a lot of people chose the combos for last minute tickets to Alcatraz as there was only one other couple. Henrique talked us through all the different types of beer and walked us through the brewing (while tasting of course....). He had formal post-secondary training in brewing and was able to explain the process and methods from start to finish. It was at a very relaxed pace and as people who knew little about beer it was all explained with a perfect level of detail and kept our attention. We then wandered to a couple of spots across town. All the way Henrique would stop and point out hidden gems, describing the history behind unsuspecting buildings and areas. It was absolutely fascinating, and we learned so much of the city! It was a truly pleasant surprise. The first bar was the only brewery, but all bars served locally brewed beer. The bars that followed were both incredibly varied: an Irish bar ran by an Indian family, serving delicious Indian bar snacks and a dark/dive bar with cosmic decorations. All the way Henrique offered us options that allowed us to tailor the experience to which beers we liked and he'd take the lead when we were undecided. Even the other couple who didn't often drink beer / alcohol said they thoroughly enjoyed it all. The whole day was perfectly comfortable, interesting and all round lovely. I'm not sure if we just got lucky with having Henrique to guide us... we will have still enjoyed the day but his tour made it extra special. Thank you!! Highly recommended... and don't skip the walking/beer tour!

As a repeat patron of food and drink tours around the world, it was great to see the availability of this tour. The owner of SF on Tap, Adam, was our guide on a brisk but sunny day. We met him along with a dozen or so other "drinking buddies" in a cool local brew pub. Adams excitement and knowledge were fantastic. Although it was a bit loud and nearly impossible to hear all that he had to say in the electric environment of the first bar. As we walked along to our next stop, Adam provided detailed history and narratives on the many street murals and other elements of the Mission area. Two more stops, each with a variety of beers along with a couple of snacks! The next day Adam emailed pictures of the group and a listing of the beers that we enjoyed. Great day, great tour, great host. Recommended.

Doing this tour with Mike was amazing! This was the best tour ever. I did this on my second last day but I wish I would have done it the first day. Mike was super knowledgable about not only beer but also SF and its history. Mike was super friendly, entertaining and very interesting to listening.

The Alcatraz tour was impressive and informative. Lena was an excellent guide and I enjoyed all of our stops and the tour of the Mission District. I had a fun time with the other tourist as we tried many varieties of beer and got insights on a working brewery. Well worth it!
