Vantigo | The best San Francisco Brew Tour

The San Francisco Brew Tour is an afternoon cruise down the streets of San Francisco in our classic Volkswagen Van visiting three breweries in the City by the Bay. The tour will start in San Francisco at one of the newest breweries Cellarmaker Brewing Company for a tasting. After Cellarmakers, we’ll continue on our road trip to the Magnolia Brewery to taste some Grateful Dead inspired brew on the legendary Haight st. Finally, we’ll end our trip by visiting Speakeasy Ales & Lagers or a Surprise Brewery and learn about one of San Francisco's best beers. Tastings will be provided at all of these breweries along with beer in the van.

Brewers set up shop in San Francisco during the Gold Rush, and today’s local beer scene is more robust than ever. You’ll hear about that evolution while visiting three big-name facilities on Vantigo’s San Francisco Brewery Tour.  From the West Coast IPA's to the daring Stouts this tour promises to delight the palette on this all inclusive tour visiting three of the following breweries:

San Francisco’s craft beer community is a close-knit one, and you’ll experience it like a local on Vantigo’s San Francisco Brewery Tour. Leave the driving to us, and enjoy an authentic taste of all the city has to offer.
