Anchor Brewing Company Tour Reservation FAQ's
We love our building. It was built in 1937 for a San Francisco food company. We bought it forty years later, managing somehow to keep our impending move a secret for the next two years. Our first brew in our new home was August 13, 1979, but we kept brewing at our old location until we were sure we had it right in the new one.
In 2013, we announced plans to develop a new brewery at what is now Pier 48 with production and distribution facilities, a restaurant, museum, educational center and other public attractions. The 212,000-square-foot space is an addition to Anchor Brewing's existing brewery. Construction is planned for the end of 2017 with the first priority to establish brewing and production facilities at the new site. As the additional mixed used space becomes developed around the new brewery, we will phase in the other guest experiences such as daily tours, the restaurant and other amenities.
