the tour guide, Kevin, was very friendly and professional about Anchor history. He poured several kinds of beer like IPA, lager, Mongo flavor, poter, etc. And he made everyone a fulfillment of beer tasting. very good experience to visit !

Great tour of a historic brewery. The tour guide Jon was very knowledgeable and gave a great tour. A must do tour if you are a fan of great craft beer and you are in the San Francisco area.

It was a great tour combining the history and stories of Anchor with a tour of the brewery. Love hearing about the different beers and the ingredient variations for each one.
