Local Micro Brews???

We plan to hit Napa Valley, but I'm a beer snob too, and want to try some local brews. Any suggestions for microbreweries?

Check out Gordon Biersch on the Embarcadero in SF. It's a pretty standard microbrewery...sampler order, etc. Not bad food either!! Their garlic fries are tasty.

For a less mainstream experience, check out the San Francisco Brewing Company on Columbus Ave in the North Beach neighborhood. I've never been, but it sounds pretty eclectic. You could probably get more info. by "googling" their website.

Have a great time!!

I like the San Francisco Brewing Company. Gordon Bierch is fine too.
