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.

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!

We took a tour in the early summer and had a great time. Tour was informative from a historical perspective and quite entertaining. And hell, it was free and you get to taste 8 of their beers at the end. Just call way ahead of time to get a reservation on one of the tours because they are usually booked about 2 months in advance

Tough place to get a tour, as they book up some 6 weeks on advance. Excellent tour, with lots of historical information and then a tasting of all of their beers. Our tour guide surprised us by popping open a magnum of 2010 Christmas ale. Awesome! A must visit if you can book a tour. Best of all, it's free as well as 2 posters they gave us

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.

One of my favorite brewery tours, must call for reservation way in advance. Tour is free with samples of all taps! Was cool to see them brewing during the tour

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.

Iím sure it has something to do with planning my last trip to San Fran around a tour of the Anchor Brewery but what a place. The tour group I was with was diverse and kinda quirky and the history, explanation and beer was WORLD CLASS. Well Done!

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!

Friendly and a landmark for all that love the microbrewery beer. If Maytag hadnít saved Anchor Brewing Co. the microbrewery industry would perhaps not have started whebn it did. The building is quite strange compered to other breweries Iíve been to but so much culture. Perhaps the guides needs to learn a bit more but they sertanly are friendly.
