Never wanted to go through the trouble to schedule a tour months in advance but RBSG 2009 made it easy for me. The place is not open to the public (unless you sign up for the tour) so there isnít a whole lot of "ambiance" to rate but between it being comfortable and private, and that Aussie girl that was working the bar itís a cool place. Itís hard to knock the selection too because while Anchor only makes a handfull of beers theyíre pretty much all available at the bar, and for free after you do the tour. No food here minus some pretzels and they dont let you bring in outside food but there was a taco truck right outside when I went. Worth a stop once.

April 2008. Our friends Chris and Meredith from thebeergeek.com were able to secure a private tour for just the four of us. We went at the end of the business day on a Friday and virtually had the run of the place to ourselves. OK, so we didnít get the promised vertical tasting, but we did get a great tour, got to play with their fresh hop leaves and had a generally great time. Great brewery. Definitely take time to visit during scheduled tour times. (Brewery #462, 4/11/2008)

We couldnít book at tour slot, so we just showed up to look around and see what happened. Watching our sad faces as the tour left, an office lady there told us just to join them. The best brewery tour yet for me: 20 minutes looking at the beautiful brewhouse with straightforward explanation, then straight to the tasting room for all those great Anchor beers. Fabulous. Would go time and time again.

Finally made the trek this afternoon thanks to my Godmother in-law, who knows the president of the company. :) Great tour, extremely engaging tour guide. Following the tour you get 4 oz pours of up to eight of their beers, all served in a pretty cool tasting room. And its all free! Highly cool - recommended!

This was one of my places to stop on my personal brewery tour through San Fran. My wife was on a business trip and I tagged along for some fun and beer drinking. Took the tour and that was a blast and when Fritz Maytag stopped and talked he was awesome. Loved the location right on the bus line which was perfect for me. We got to try a new special brew they had just brewed a special for the anniversary of the place. We had so many samples it was good I was on a bus at the end. No food which I could have used made the rest of the trip tough. Anchor Steam you where awesome!!! A great tour but no food.

Most impressive are the huge mash tun and the brew kettles. The brewery tour is decent. Unfortunately no special brews were available in the tasting room. A must visit though, due to the historic value of this brewery. We visited on the day when Maytag announced to sell the business, so was a bit sad.

I canít believe I have never rated this place. Iíve been here many times (RBSG once), and I have been here to judge homebrew competitions and homebrew club of the year parties. This place is brimming with history. Clean, immaculately clean. Most beers are available to sample. Nice tour, and a gorgeous view of the city. Yes, itís a pain to reserve a tour, but itís a good time.

Nice building. Stopped by twice without realizing that this place only does tours and you have to book them 2 months out. At least put a sign up! I went back the second day and was greeted by a very snotty woman who seemed offended by the idea that they would have a tap room open to the public. Catch a clue! I donít care if I get a happy ending on the tour -- Iím not going back.

Had tour twice now. Once in 1995 & once in 2006. Didnít know much in í95. Class act all the way. They went above & beyond. Tasted some Anchor Steam right out of the vat. Stayed after hours with the tour guide & the brewers, Highly recommended.

Reserve your tour way in advance, awesome classic old equipment and these guys are churning out tons of beer for a small setup. In a very rural part of town. I think the breweing setup is the most awesome thing about stopping here.
