Best brewery tour I’ve had. It is actually a brewery tour-you don’t 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 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.

Very nice tour, smaller operation than I expected, seeing that Anchor is available pretty much everywhere. Lots of Anchor history and general brewing info. Depending when you go, you can see anything from mashing to bottling to Fritz Maytag. I talked with one of the brewers as wort boiled nearby in one of the gleaming copper vessels. It was Halloween 2003 when I went, and most employees were in costume. Tasting at the end of the tour. Everyone was super-friendly. When the cute tour guide (oops, sexist remark) mentioned she was out of Old Foghorn, a passing worker volunteered to get more; he returned with a fresh keg, hooked up the lines, and helped serve. On tap that day were Wheat, Liberty, Steam, Porter, and Foghorn. There was also discussion of the distillery downstairs (no tour, no tasting). Reservations required. For out-of-towners like me, there's an obscure bus stop within sight of the brewery.

A definite must stop while in San Francisco, but make a reservation before you go. Great view of the city. Nice homely "bar" after your tour. Great staff, very knowledgeable. Found out a lot about their beer, and enjoyed the samples of every beer they make on tap (except Small Beer).

A must stop while in san Francisco. Reservations are needed, and it's best to call weeks in advance. Brewery tour takes about two hours including a full tour of the operation and tasting afterwards. Tour guides are very knowledgable of beer, brewery and history of San Francisco.

read Yogi_Beera's comments and put ditto marks in there for me. I added food only because I was lucky enough to have lunch served, but think that's a rarity. Couldn't have been treated better. Great stories from guide and all the beer and various combinations I could imagine.

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.
