    A San Francisco treat. The tour guide was funny as well as knowledgeable with plenty of beer at the end of the tour. Eat something before you come and don't drive, parking can be difficult and the pou...  more »

    Loved the tour, loved the beers we tasted and the small souvenir shop at the end of the tour but finding parking was nightmare! Tour costs $25 a person.  more »

    I've toured a hundred breweries around the country, and I've never been told I needed reservations at least a week in advance before. I really like anchor steam beer and was excited to check the place out while in town, only to be turned away. Major bummer.

    A fun way to kick off the weekend. So much history and resilience (rebuilt after 6 fires through the years). Our tour with Braden was fun and engaging. Certainly a great stop for locals and visitors alike!

    Stephen our tour director and beer pourer was very informative and helpful. Ryan was very helpful in finding our correct shirt size and beer to purchase. Fun way to kick off the day.

    My wife and i visit a good number of breweries and we have taken a lot tours, but this one is truly unique. No other US brewery can boast the history of Anchor. And the tour takes full advantage of all of it. Currently, all the beer made for distribution is made in this location. There doesn't appear to be that much from the exterior but they are at least four floors and a basement so there's a lot more here than you'd think. The history is great; the brewing equipment is old and amazing (no computers here!); and our guide, Steven knew the answers to every question. AND the tasting at the end is pretty darn great, too. This such a cool and different place, I recommend it for every beer lover.

    I've been on a lot of brewery tours and this is one of the best. Informative and interesting tour followed by an extensive tasting.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
