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.

Always a fun tour - glad we were able to go, a lot has changed between 2004 (when we were last there) and 2013. The tour is informative and entertaining, the folks running it seem to enjoy what they do. and thereís a hop room that will make you drool.

First tried the Porter on a trip to SF 25 years ago, so there will always be a fond place in my heart (get it?) for Anchor Brewing. Visited the brewery 15 years ago after moving to SF. They keep the tours small, so thereís a long waiting list, but I was a last minute add-on. Friendly people, fiirst-class operation, worth a visit to the place that inspired the microbrew revolution in the US. We San Franciscans take great pride in our historic contribution to the American craft brew industry!

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.

All US microbreweries owe Fritz Maytag and Anchor Brewing a debt of gratitude. Their beers are generally very good (although I donít like their summer wheat beer or the Small beer.) Anchor Steam, Liberty Ale, and Porter are all classics and hold up well against any of the extreme beers of their style. Anchor is not a trendy brewery - I wouldnít expect a sour or a Belgian style Tripel from them any time some - nor would I want one. I respect their integrity, and thank them for leading the micro-brewery revolution so long ago.

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.

Toured on the 29th July 09. Booked over 2 months in advance and just got on! The building is fairly modern and unassuming; youíd never guess itís a brewery from the exterior (no signs or visible clues to mention, even the taxi driver had no idea it was here!). The tour guide (Andrew I think) was very informative, detailing the company history and its relatively recent rebirth. Seeing the 3 beautiful coppers tuns near the start of the process to the bottling to the all important tasting after the tour was great. A great tour for those interested in either the company or brewing in general. And its free!

We signed up for the tour months in advance and we are so glad we did as space fills up fast. Two very knowledgeable and friendly employees, Andy and Molly took a group of about 15 of us on an interesting and informative tour. The two large copper fermenting tanks are beautiful. There is great history about this brewery. After the tour, sampling all their beers was a treat in a comfortable room with lots of memorabillia. We also enjoyed talking to our guides and the quests. They also have great merchandise for sale and many old pictures of the brewery. A wonderful experience.

a great San Fransisco experience. untill i went to Anchor i thought the great tradition of great essentially micro brewed beers was an east coast thing. Anchor shattered my perception of the west coast beer culture and in a good way

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!
