Where

Anchor Brewing Compay is America’s first and oldest craft brewery. Never heard of steam beer? Good because you’ll learn all about it here! Anchor pioneered a unique method of brewing beer utilizing a specific yeast that could be fermented at higher temperatures. This was necessary because ice and cold water were mostly unavailable to brewers in the 1890s, when Anchor first began brewing beer. Housed in an awesome art deco classic old San Francisco building, you’ll see epic brewing equipment and meet some of the smartest and most passionate brewers in the industry. And at the end of the tour, there’s no shortage of tastings for those who love beer.

Racertrips Tips

  • Because of the popularity of the tours, there are no “walk-ins” per se. You must make a reservation, which you can do up to 3 months in advance.
  • Children are permitted on the tour, but of course, you must be 21 or older to do the tastings after the tour.
  • There is no parking lot—only street parking. We highly recommend taking public transportation.
