Perhaps one of the oldest handcrafted American beers, this classic is amber in color with a nice balance between sweet malts and caramel, and tart apple with a hint of citrus. Totally loved it
Nice, tight little tour of the brewery operation, followed by an long tasting session of current beers. As noted before, these ain't little mini-samples, you get a healthy portion of each to savor. When we called for reservations, the brewery was running a 10am as well as an afternoon tour - and our 10am was full up, so make reservations early (no walk ins!). Well worth the pilgrimage from downtown, added bonus for the morning tour, you finish up your tour and tastings in time for lunch, and just a couple of blocks over is Goat Hill Pizza. When we went, Goat Hill had Speakeasy ale on tap, so it's a natural for the beer tour of the Bay!
The tour makes me appreciate the Anchor products I see on the shelves back home.
Got the afternoon free? Call ahead and schedule a tour. The process is interesting, but the best part is a lengthy tasting session at the end of the tour. Try all the varieties -- and this isn't dainty, tiny-pour wine tasting. You oughta plan on a designated driver. You're guaranteed to come away as an Anchor Brewing devotee.
