Evan and I both had last Monday off from work for MLK Jr. Day. We have been wanting to tour Anchor Brewing Company -- our favorite brewery! -- for a while now. Here's the deal though. They only offer tours Monday-Friday AND tours fill up months in advance. Evan called back in the fall (early October, I think) and scheduled us for January 20. It was tough to wait so long but definitely worth it!
It was so fun to walk through the brewery and learn Anchor's process for brewing beer. The tour itself lasted about 25 minutes. But then! But then the tour group was taken to the tap room for a beer tasting. We tried eight different brews, all very generous pours. We were feeling good by the end of it!
Oh, and did I mention the tour/tasting is FREE?! How cool is that? If you ever visit San Francisco and are a beer lover, I highly suggest touring Anchor. Again, you'll need to call months in advance, so be sure to plan ahead!
