You will also get to tour one of the brewing facilities to get familiar with the brewing process. While walking in between breweries/bars, enjoy the iconic sights of your neighborhood and glimpse into the past as we discuss the stories behind the objects. This Experiences offers a great balance of learning, drinking, and celebration with your new drinking buddies. It's a winning combo that will help make your time in San Francisco special and memorable!
After a decade in travel & tourism, I founded SF on Tap Tours to enjoy my 3 favorite things: beer, people & San Francisco (in that order). I've been showcasing our city & its beers for 4 years. I'm passionate about showing you a great time as you drink local beer with new drinking buddies & learn things that will make the rest of your trip way better! I don't always lead this tour; you may meet Andrew instead. He's very fun, friendly & adaptable, but most impressively, he's the first EVER Master Cicerone® (top level beer sommelier)! This +20 years living in SF = an extra special experience!
Snacks--great with beer! Not a meal, just enough to get you through to dinner
