WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE THREE TOURS?

  • All tours adhere to our Learn. Drink. Celebrate. slogan. They all offer about the same amount of beer at 3 different locations in four hours.
  • All tours offer a lot of stories and information about beer styles, ingredients, etc., as well as commentary about the neighborhoods we walk through. 

BIG SIPPIN' IN SOMA

  • Usually visits 3 breweries (sometimes 2 breweries and 1 bar)
  • Features the best tour of a brewing facility (ThirstyBear Organic Brewery)
  • Conveniently located not too far from Union Square, which is SF's main hotel district and close to lots of public transportation including BART (the subway)
  • Has the least neighborhood commentary
  • Usually runs Saturdays only

CELEBRATE THE HAIGHT

  • Almost always visits 3 breweries (rarely, 2 breweries and 1 bar)
  • Features a tour of a brewing facility at one location
  • Located in a beautiful neighborhood featuring SF's quintessential Victorian homes and many parks
  • Includes a flashback to the 1967 hippie Summer of Love and other good stories
  • Stylistically, it's kinda the midpoint between the SoMa and Fisherman's Wharf tours
  • Usually runs Sundays only

FISHERMAN'S WHARF AND NORTH BEACH

  • Visits 3 bars and thus does not feature a brewery tour
  • Includes the most commentary about the neighborhoods and SF history, essentially making it half Beer Tour and half Neighborhood Walking Tour 
  • By taking you through 2 of SF's most beautiful and visited neighborhoods, it serves as an excellent orientation to the city and is highly recommended early in your stay 
  • Usually runs Monday-Friday
