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.

I am very glad I booked a tour on my trip to San Francisco. The tour was informative and friendly. You get to see the brewing process in action, fermenting tanks at the basement level, and even the bottling line. I was very impressed with the causal family atmosphere among the employees. I expected a large "corporate" operation from a brewer that distributes around the world. I still canít fathom how they brew enough beer to satisfy the demand. The beer sampling at the end was awesome and a lot of fun. I felt at home discussing beer with the guide. I left Anchor feeling mildly buzzed and happy and enjoyed a walk around the scenic area.

Never wanted to go through the trouble to schedule a tour months in advance but RBSG 2009 made it easy for me. The place is not open to the public (unless you sign up for the tour) so there isnít a whole lot of "ambiance" to rate but between it being comfortable and private, and that Aussie girl that was working the bar itís a cool place. Itís hard to knock the selection too because while Anchor only makes a handfull of beers theyíre pretty much all available at the bar, and for free after you do the tour. No food here minus some pretzels and they dont let you bring in outside food but there was a taco truck right outside when I went. Worth a stop once.

Itís a thorough tour on the history of Anchor (which has a good story to it), the brewing process, and the specifics about each beer. You get a really good look at things (loved seeing the tubs of fermenting beer with all that yeast on top!). After that you get an hour of free tasting. Itís Anchor, so thereís only so many beers to try, but at least theyíre good. Itís really good for a first time visit, but itíll definitely be the same if you go a second time.

Nice building. Stopped by twice without realizing that this place only does tours and you have to book them 2 months out. At least put a sign up! I went back the second day and was greeted by a very snotty woman who seemed offended by the idea that they would have a tap room open to the public. Catch a clue! I donít care if I get a happy ending on the tour -- Iím not going back.
