Tour, August 2008. Up the stairs, past several well kept, low key offices, through the glass doors is the Anchor tasting room, where the tour starts. The guide was very personable and well spoken, taking us through the whole building, past what looked like free staff taps, though they are likely just water with anchor tap handles, through the bottling room. Don’t miss a chance to stick a head in the hop room, which is as aromatic an experience as can be. The tasting was free, booked in advance, and the beers were wonderful when served this fresh. I did not know that only one business day is devoted to brewing most of their diverse line of beers: the other days are all for steam beer. A worthwhile visit.

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 there’s 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 there’s 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 don’t 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 wouldn’t 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 didn’t mind refilling my glass at least twice with Old Foghorn. A must if you’re ever in the Bay Area. Also, check out some of the food joints nearby - great sandwiches and such at all of them.
