This brewery and distillery, founded in 1896, is one of the last in the country to make the historic California Common Beer. The brewery nearly closed in the 1950s and 60s, as people began to prefer light lager, and because the new management wasn’t experienced enough in the discipline of making beers. Twice a day the company organises guided public tours, followed by a tasting session. These are by reservation only. Visitors get an insight into beer-crafting techniques that have not changed in the past century and a dollop of San Francisco history.

Anchor Brewing Company Reviews & Ratings
Took the brewery tour and was very impressed. Our tour, Philip, was very knowledgeable and the tour was super fun. Beyond seeing the facility and learning how Anchor produces its beer, we got to learn a lot about the history of the company and the city of San Francisco. At the beginning of the tour you get a ~10 oz beer and at the end you can try 11 of their brews, including their current beers in experimentation. Definitely worth going whether you’re a local or visitor to SF!
Our tour guide Pedro was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and clearly had a love for all things Anchor brewing. The group size wasn't to big and felt personal. I also loved that you could try all the brews at the end. A great all round experience.
Winsor gave us a stellar tour on Monday - after working in the beer industry for almost a decade I can't believe I've never taken a tour before this one. Even though he said this was one of his first solo tours, I thought he was very funny, knowledgeable, and generally just created a positive atmosphere. My partner and I had a great time - we will definitely be sending our friends your way. Thank you for such wonderful hospitality, Cheers!
Awesome trivia on Tuesdays and great selection of IPAs. Also a ton of seating in this warehouse style location. Apparently oldest brewery in SF? Only downside is no food but sometimes food truck come to the outdoor space.
Brewery tour was excellent! Had Denny for our guide and he was both funny and KNOWLEDGEABLE about all history for the brewery and surrounding area! Highly recommend!
