Hmm, that explains why the Bay Area is "F" on the Google points--or not. If you live in the Bay Area and haven't done the Anchor Brewery I contend that you should STILL make that your first stop.
Maybe on your way through Davis you could stop and try to get a look at the 1957 all-grain 5-gallon pilot system installed in the UCD brewing science laboratory. It cost $50k back then and it's a thing of beauty. If you're lucky you could shake the hand of Michael Lewis PhD, professor emeritus and a hell of a nice guy!
