Default Heading up to San Fran tomorrow

Can not recall the name of the Hotel I will be at, but it is right down by the Pier/Fishermans Wharf. I know there is Anchor Steam in the Area, but they apparently do tours by Reservation, and only on week days. So I was wondering if there were any other breweries in Town I should drop in and check out while I am up there this weekend.

Toronado Pub, San Francisco Toronado is down in the Haight. Take a cab there because you'll need one to get back . Once your liver is too hard to keep going head to the jug shop The Jug Shop and mail the rest of us all the fine fine beers you Californians are bogarting.

Lucky you.

EDIT:
You can also look here: http://beermapping.com/maps/citymaps.php?m=sanfran but if the SF map is as bad as the DC map I wouldn't bother.

Toronado is a must visit.
It will be a very beneficial experience. Trust me.

Pyramid has a taphouse/brewery in Berkeley... easy to get to if you have a rental car.
While in Berkeley, swing by the Sho Chiku Bai Sake brewery -- nice tasting room with very generous samples.

Speakeasy is open on friday nights tell 7 or 8. Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, San Francisco

Otherwise just go to Toronado. It's the best you can do.

If you hit the Toronado, I highly recommend the lamb sausage sold next door. They grill it while you have another pint at the T.
