San Francisco Craft Beer, Bites, and Brewery Tour

San Francisco Beer and Bites Tour

Your 5-hour foodie adventure will begin with pickup from your hotel in downtown San Francisco. Traveling by open-air vehicle, venture out with your guide through the city.

Stop first to tour a local brewery and learn how delicious craft beer is made. Delight your sweet tooth by trying a chocolate and beer pairing before you go.

Continue on to the hip neighborhoods of the Dogpatch, South of Market (SoMA) and the Haight, each bringing its own unique flavor to the table. Try a Mission-district favorite with carnitas taco dorado and Pacifico beer, and sample bourbon-and-cornflake ice cream at a gourmet sweet shop.

To continue the fun between stops, craft beer is provided aboard your vehicle. Your guide will point out lesser-known landmarks as you go, such as local murals, the historic Beach Chalet and more.

Be sure to bring your appetite! Delicious beer-sautéed mussels will follow, as well as ‘Chomp Dogs’ bound with bacon and paired with winter brews. All beer and food pairings are included with your ticket, along with a beer-themed gift bag and tasting notebook.

Your 5-hour tour will conclude with drop-off back at your hotel.

This was an awesome tour. We went to several breweries and had a variety of beers. It was a great way to learn about San Francisco, talk to the locals and visit bars that we normally wouldn't have gone. I had a great time!

This was the first activity my girlfriend and I had planned for our visit to San Francisco and Eric did not disappoint. He is clearly a people person, very knowledgable about the beers/city and will keep everyone entertained throughout the tour. At the conclusion of the tour Eric helped us find a restaurant for dinner and dropped us off right in front. We had a really great time and highly recommend it to others.

Fantastic fun! We were the only people on this tour on the day we did it but it was still great fun. We visited 3 breweries that we would never have visited if not for this tour. Eric was friendly and chatty and very informative about the different types of beer and the breweries themselves. He also had some facts to point out about San Francisco along the way to the different venues. Everyone was also really nice at the Breweries. Cannot recommend this enough as something a little different to do in San Francisco.

Eric was fantastic! We were lucky enough to go on the tour before the busy season so we were the only ones. It felt really special to be able to interact with him that way. Eric took us to a lot of great places that I know for sure we would not have been able to find on our own. He even took the time to snap a really incredible photo of us on one of the great streets we were on. The beer was great and he really listened to our likes and dislikes. This is a wonderful way to get a real San Fran experience without being in a tourist trap- love it!

Went as a group of 6 and everyone had an amazing time! Our groups is a bit crazy, but this never seemed to faze Eric our wonderful tour guide he just rolled right with the punches. Loved visiting local breweries/pubs away from all the tourist traps. Eric was extremely knowledgable and really tried to bring out beers to suite everyones' taste buds. He was even sweet enough to give our birthday guy and gal a little present at the end! We would all recommend this to anyone searching for a tour away from the ordinary. Will be back! :

I had a GREAT time on the beer and bites tour! My boyfriend was visiting from out of town and we were looking for something fun to do both for a tourist and a local and this was the perfect choice! We both saw some major sights, amazing views of the city and drove up and down the steep SF hills, and also were taken to more off-the-beaten path, local neighborhoods and breweries. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and this tour took me to breweries I had never been to and to neighborhoods I had never even set foot in! Our guide Eric was clearly very knowledgeable about the Bay Area craft brewing scene--he customizes the tours daily based on what's new and personal preferences of those on the tour. We tried a wide variety of delicious craft beers, learned more about the brewing process and the history of craft brewing in the Bay Area and were treated to some seriously delicious BBQ, artisanal chocolates, and more. All in all, great experience for locals and tourists alike!

i booked this for my mom's first trip to the bay, instead of normal, dry, wine tasting. I couldn't be happier with my choice. Eric, our guide, was funny and knowledgable about the beers and locations and everything in between. even as a local, he pointed out things i wasn't aware of in the city. i would recommend anyone, local or out of towner, if you like good beer, good food, and the bay, BOOK THIS TOUR. i'm 100 sure i'll be doing it again with others.
