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 pours are generous.

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.

I recall that the actual tour only lasts about an hour. There is a beer tasting afterward and people seemed to linger there.
