Probably the best brewery tour out there! This is a really cool brewhouse and thereís mojo oozing from the walls. I would consider this a must see for any beer fan in San Francisco. Itís probably a must see for anyone, really.

Great Brewtour. In a nice atmosphere at the bar the guide told us a lot about the history and the making of the beer, while we all sipped some brews. The tour took a long time and was really interesting. Afterwards the whole range of brews on tap accomplimented by the nice guide was a highlight of my first day in San Francisco years ago.

I am very glad I booked a tour on my trip to San Francisco. The tour was informative and friendly. You get to see the brewing process in action, fermenting tanks at the basement level, and even the bottling line. I was very impressed with the causal family atmosphere among the employees. I expected a large "corporate" operation from a brewer that distributes around the world. I still canít fathom how they brew enough beer to satisfy the demand. The beer sampling at the end was awesome and a lot of fun. I felt at home discussing beer with the guide. I left Anchor feeling mildly buzzed and happy and enjoyed a walk around the scenic area.

I was up in the Bay Area on Monday and was able to squeeze onto a tour at the last minute. Andrew, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and gracious, and the rest of the staff seemed very accomodating, Great selection of their beers to taste. Truly a San Francisco treat! It is a must see if you are from out of town. The tour covers the process, and the tasting is not rushed at all.

The wife and I took a 1 PM tour on a Friday. Located on the southern part of San Francisco on the number 19 bus route, this place wasnít really near anything else, but was a cool looking building nonetheless. We came in, and the tour started out with the basic brewery tour info: the four basic ingredients of beer and the history of the brewery. The history was very interesting, actually. The tour itself was pretty standard, yet it was one of the better tours I have been on. Our guide seemed to know his stuff, and he wasnít boring like some guides can be. At the end of the tour, we got to sample the six beers that they had on tap: Steam, Summer Ale, Bock, Porter, Liberty Ale, and Old Foghorn. I usually love Anchor beers, but these were even better at the brewery. The value is a "10" because it was free, and they gave us a lot of time to sample all of the beers and go back for seconds on something we liked. Reservations are a must, so plan ahead, because if you are in the San Francisco area, you should definitely stop at Anchor.

Live in the neighborhood and stopped by to say hi on a friday afternoon. Stopping by without a reservation way in advance was definitely a no no, but the folks inside were really neighborly and invited me in to have drinks with the employees at the bar overlooking the gorgeous brewing equipment. Lots of fun chatting with these guys and tasting the beer fresh from the brewery. Did the tour and it was great. Strangely enough, the smells of the hand brewing process alone have made me a loyal drinker of Anchor products.

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.

A pleasant surprise. The classic Anchor Steam is unbeatable, and the brewery has a rich and beautiful history. The tour and guides were fantastic. The beer is underrated. Excellent.

03/22/12 Tour visit: A wonderful experience on my San Francisco visit. Tour guide (Daniel) was excellent and very informative. Enjoyed seeing the "hops room" and the bottling line. Loved the ambiance and history of this place. Tour was casual and not rushed. It ended with eight (8) four (4) ounce tastings of their solid beers.......all free! Must make a reservation months in advance!
