San Francisco Craft Beer Guide

SAN FRANCISCO | San Francisco is booming, and while craft beer has always been something that local have enjoyed, recent years have seen a lot of new spaces with a focus on brewing and selling great beer open up around town. San Francisco beer institution Toronado has been going strong since the 1980s while Anchor Brewing, which first started producing beer in 1896, recently opened their new taproom. Even famed Danish gypsy brewery Mikkeller have a bar in town.

There’s more than 120 breweries in the greater Bay Area, and over 30 of them can be found in San Francisco. From the hop driven IPAs of Cellarmaker to the innovative sour beers being brewed at Alamanc, and the impressive take away bottle selection at City Beer Store, the San Francisco beer scene has something for everyone.

Wihtout further ado, here’s the part of our San Francisco Craft Beer Guide that you’re really interested in, a list of our favourite craft beer brewpubs, bars and bottle shops in the city.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
