Anchor Steam Tour

The Anchor Steam Brewery is only a mile or two from my house, so every time I get the opportunity to take a tour and get a couple free samples I am on it! The Brewery is one of San Francisco’s oldest. They brew all their beer onsite and are super-friendly about sharing. The founder, Fritz Maytag, also has a winery, and gin and whiskey stills. I’ve been trying to get my hands on a bottle of the whiskey, but I’m still not at a point where I’m willing to drop the $90 quite yet.  The Stanford Belgian club signed up for this tour, and my friend Tom let me know there was enough space for a couple more. I don’t normally recommend drinking before noon, but sometimes one must just man-up. Tom himself is in the process of developing his own micro-brewery, focusing on Belgian Ales. Since Chimay is one of  my new all-time favorites, I had him send me home with a couple bottles… mmm. Shoot me an e-mail if you’re interested in checking out his killer brew.
