With over 108,000 barrels of beer sold every year, you may have already sampled the fruit of this company's labor. Anchor Steam, a full-bodied lager, is the brewery's most famous creation, and is popular in San Francisco and around the world. But have you seen it being created? And have you tried it freshly brewed? If not, take the official brewery tour. See the beer being made, sample different brews at the tasting bar, and savor a shot of the famous Potrero malted rye whiskey. Beer and souvenir items are available for purchase. Hour-long tours Monday to Friday can be made by reservation only.
It's Haight-Ashbury, so what better music to be wafting in the air as you sip the house-made brews than the Grateful Dead in a place that was known back in the '60s as the Drug Store? Remodeling has made the setting less psychedelic, though there is an ebullient mural on the wall, but Jerry and the guys are always on the sound system taking you back to the Summer of Love. That sets a mellow mood for the huge sandwiches, plates of sausages, bowls of hearty soup, and tempting finger foods such as french fries and onion rings. The service from the hip and hippie wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is always 1967. Do not miss their special brunch every Saturday and Sunday, 10a to 3p.
