Great, informative tour - quite amazing that all of their beer worldwide is made in the one room (at the moment). Very knowledgeable guide and some interesting beers not found at home.

Finally made it here. My first stop to the iconic brewery was made for the release of their brandy barrel aged Flying Clouds stout, so perhaps a special experience, though I did not do a tour (wasnít available).

From the outside, this place certainly doesnít look like much, kind of a non-descript rundown industrial building. Inside, however, itís incredibly well maintained and the space sort of exudes history.

The service from the bartenders and retail store staff was excellent and they were very friendly. Of course, the beers are good though perhaps not entirely exciting for many people these days. Had the obligatory pour of Anchor Steam which was great, as usual, and really highlights how crappy most of the beers that try to copy it are.

Definitely recommend coming here if you can. I will certainly be trying to make a return for a tour.

A great brewery tour (I got an insidersí tour that included their amazing roof and a tasting through their liquor importer line up - Asian whiskey!!!). Very knowledgeable tour guides and staff. Great fun all around.

Beer tour was nice, well planned and executed. Beer tasting afterwards very nice, although not the most exciting beers.

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.
