Over in Portrero Hill, photographer Bhautik Joshi snapped this Laverne & Shirleyesque shot from inside the Anchor Brewery, home of 10 noted beers. We can only imagine how many times factory employees have placed a white glove atop a bottle of beer. Because we'd get fired for doing it every single day.

If you would like to tour the brewery yourself, you need to schedule a reservation up to six months in advance.


Currently we offer two public tours each weekday, free of charge, by reservation only. The walking tour of the brewery lasts about 40-45 minutes. The tour guide will give you a brief history of the brewery and walk you through three floors of our building. Children are welcome to come on the tour, but of course may not taste the beer during our tasting session, which follows the walking tour. You may have up to ten in your party, depending on the availability of space. Altogether, the tour and the tasting last for about 1.5 hours, and tastings are only available to those who take the tour.

Call 415-863-8350, ext 0, Monday-Friday, to schedule your tour.
