Combo Tour: Alcatraz Visit & Walking Craft Beer Tour

by SF on Tap Duration 9h+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $129

Combine a visit to the eerie concrete halls of Alcatraz's island prison with an afternoon spent sipping local ales and lagers on a neighborhood walking tour. With a brew-loving guide to lead the way, visit a handful of bars or breweries to uncover the secrets of the Bay Area's craft beer scene.

Kick off your SF adventure in the morning with a visit to one of the city's most iconic attractions—Alcatraz. Head down to Pier 33 to pick up your tickets, and then step aboard the ferry for a narrated ride across the bay. Once you arrive at Alcatraz, slip on an audio-guide and roam the cell blocks and grounds of this infamous penitentiary, which once housed notorious criminals like Al Capone.

Ferry back to mainland to grab lunch before meeting up with your guide at your tour's first watering hole for the second half of your tour. With a group of no more than 12, hit the pavement in search of some of the Bay Area's best brews, delving into the entertaining history of the area as you stroll from one beer hall to the next. Depending on the day, pop into 3 different breweries and bars in bustling Fisherman's Wharf and historic North Beach, or scope out the urban breweries of SoMa or the hip hangouts of the Haight. As you sip on tasters of ales, pilsners, porters, and lagers, your guide shares insight into brewing techniques and offers up pointers on other great drinking establishments to check out after your tour concludes.

An excellent tour taking in a number of North Beach sights and tasting a variety of different beers. The beers could be somewhat tailored to suit the varied tastes of the guests. Andrew was a very knowledgable beer guide providing many interesting insights to the historical and modern direction of beer. Highly recommended.
