Notes:
Anchor has a strange bottling code on their bottles. You can match it up as follows:

First = last digit of the year.

Second = month code (J=January, F=February, M=March, A=April,Y=MaY, U=JUne,L=JuLy,G=AuGust,S=September, O=October, N=November, D=December)

Third = day of month code (Letters A-Z = 1-26, Numbers 7-1 = 27, 28, 29, 30, 31)

This is one of the great places to visit while in San Francisco. They give free tours during weekdays. There are two tours a day and you need to book several months in advance (maximum of 6 people per booking). Its really a great great tour that goes through the history of the oldest brewery in the city. They have a free tasting session at the end of the tour.

Highly recommended.

great tour, horrible SF parking! with so many new/newer breweries on the landscape, it's very special to experience one with so much history. it really comes out in the tour of the building & the tasting room is just an awesome spot filled with photographs & memorabilia.

While I've not been to the brewery for a visit (it is a bucket list-item though), and though I've not tried all of Anchor's beers, the several I've had have been really, really, damn good! Not a stinker in the group. Solid beers from legendary brewery! Thank you Mr. Maytag!!

If you ask me, Anchor makes better, more well rounded beers than many of the more famous California breweries, like Stone and Green Flash. Their porter and barley wine are both excellent; their steam beer is still a standard-bearer for the style; and their mild IPA and bitters are very good.
