A must tour! The impression you are left with is that this seems remarkable Mom-and-Pop for such a big operation. The leaf hop room is worth it all!

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.

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.

Iíve been on countless brewery tours and overall, this was the best. Why? Because you can smell, touch and taste hops in the hop room. Because the tour and explanation of the brewing process made sense. Because they give you a ridiculous amount of beer at the end of the tour, 6 (approx. 8 oz, maybe 10 oz) glasses of beer. We even got to see Fritz Maytag in his office. Usually when I go on a brewery tour, it is on a weekend when they are not brewing, so the fact that this tour was during the week made it better, although it was disappointing that the bottling line was shut down for the day when we went through. Although it seemed like a fairly good sized operation, hearing that they only produce 85,000 barrels per year surprised me. They are still a fairly small brewery. Now that I see them distributed nationally, I can see them outgrowing his facility in the near future.

One of the best brewery tour youíll ever go on. Very good history lesson. All the samples you can get. Wide open to the brewery. I marked down because of selection. I mean, all I could get where Anchor products!

Best brewery tour Iíve had. It is actually a brewery tour-you donít pass by and look through windows-- you are in the brewery, standing next to the hops and the machinery. Excellent. Great tasting at the end. No food, but they have a list of nearby places. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED--CALL AHEAD (I called 6 weeks ahead and got the last spot for the day I wanted).

An amazing brewery tour - I expected a much bigger facility, but the operation is in fact pretty small. The tasting was fantastic - pretty much all you can drink, as they didnít mind refilling my glass at least twice with Old Foghorn. A must if youíre ever in the Bay Area. Also, check out some of the food joints nearby - great sandwiches and such at all of them.
