Learned a lot and drank a bunch of awesome beer. Don’t forget to go across the street Anchor Public Taps when you are done with the tour.

Excellent tour! Educational and funny. Beer was amazing ... lots of things we cannot get in Canada. Pricing for souvenirs at the gift shop were very reasonable.

Excellent tour guide. Great sample of beers. The factory is located in a very interesting historical part of San Francisco. I highly recommend the beer hall in the adjacent building.

Overall pretty typical tour but an interesting history. Great staff. The tasting was the best part and getting to talk to some of the other guests. Highly recommend going if you like going to local breweries!
