Glad we didn't skip the beer/walking tour!! Thank you Henrique!
Jul. 2019
Couple in our early 30s. We left booking Alcatraz to the very last minute, and the only tickets left were combos like this. We chose the early trip to Alcatraz to get the most out of it...

Alcatraz was incredible, as expected. A couple of hours on the island was just enough time for the (very captivating) self-guided audio tour and time to take in the sights outside. The self-guided tour was really moving at times. It didn't feel too rushed .

An unexpected bonus on the island was an art exhibition in one of the old factory houses. It displayed photo IDs created by former/current inmates and what they dream of becoming.

We got back with little time to grab some lunch and head to the beer tour... I'll admit: we were considering (and very close to) bailing before the beer tour as we were getting pretty tired by this point...

... but I'm so glad we didn't!

We arrived at the first stop and greeted by our wonderful tour guide, Henrique. I gather a lot of people chose the combos for last minute tickets to Alcatraz as there was only one other couple.

Henrique talked us through all the different types of beer and walked us through the brewing (while tasting of course....). He had formal post-secondary training in brewing and was able to explain the process and methods from start to finish. It was at a very relaxed pace and as people who knew little about beer it was all explained with a perfect level of detail and kept our attention.

We then wandered to a couple of spots across town. All the way Henrique would stop and point out hidden gems, describing the history behind unsuspecting buildings and areas. It was absolutely fascinating, and we learned so much of the city! It was a truly pleasant surprise.

The first bar was the only brewery, but all bars served locally brewed beer. The bars that followed were both incredibly varied: an Irish bar ran by an Indian family, serving delicious Indian bar snacks and a dark/dive bar with cosmic decorations.

All the way Henrique offered us options that allowed us to tailor the experience to which beers we liked and he'd take the lead when we were undecided. Even the other couple who didn't often drink beer / alcohol said they thoroughly enjoyed it all.

The whole day was perfectly comfortable, interesting and all round lovely. I'm not sure if we just got lucky with having Henrique to guide us... we will have still enjoyed the day but his tour made it extra special. Thank you!!

Highly recommended... and don't skip the walking/beer tour!

Alcatraz and Walking Beer Tour with Mike Levinson
Feb. 2020
Doing this tour with Mike was amazing! This was the best tour ever. I did this on my second last day but I wish I would have done it the first day. Mike was super knowledgable about not only beer but also SF and its history. Mike was super friendly, entertaining and very interesting to listening.

The Alcatraz tour was impressive and informative. Lena was an excellent guide and I enjoyed all of our stops and the tour of the Mission District. I had a fun time with the other tourist as we tried many varieties of beer and got insights on a working brewery. Well worth it!

My time in San Fran was absolutely unforgettable, mostly thanks to the walking beer tour! Had so much fun drinking AND learning! We met some amazing people in the group and had a fabulous tour guide.. Dylan! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to try new beer, learn more about the process, learn about the city, and socialize with new friends!

Not just a beer tour!
This review is for the beer tour, Alcatraz was as you’d expect. This was such a great tour! It was a smaller group, the host was really welcoming and engaging, and pointed out some awesome bits of the area I would’ve missed without his input. Really knowledgeable too. A great tour. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in learning more about beer here and the area. Lucked out at one of the breweries too, got a sample as fresh as it’s possible to be.

Way more than just a beer tour!!
Oct. 2019 • Couples
We wanted to see Alcatraz, and we love beer. This purchase seemed to be a no-brainer. Alcatraz was excellent and that part of the day speaks for itself. It was nice that you get a 2.5hr break after Alcatraz to go eat where you’d like before meeting the beer part of the tour. The walking beer tour portion of the day was way more than we had expected. As expected, you are taken around to a few places to drink beer and you’re on foot from place to place. The beer knowledge the guides had translated into the high quality beer selections they had lined up for tastings at each place. They didn’t just pick a lager, an IPA, and a stout at each stop, the beer tastings were well thought out and excellent. The piece that was so unexpected was the San Francisco history that was recited while walking through some famous neighborhoods in San Fran. We have never been to San Fran and likely would have never seen or learned the things on this tour. Awesome day. If you’ve not been to San Fran, make sure to do both of these. They’ll do up to 12 people on the beer part so you’ll likely meet some cool people as we did. Cheers!!
