I enjoyed learning about the history of Anchor Brewing. The tasting offered at the end offered a wide selection of their current offerings, many of which I was unaware of.

This is a historical and famous brewery in San Francisco. You will see and walk through the whole process of making beer and will taste most of the beers produced by Anchor.
