Anchor Steam Brewery Free Tour
Summer is approaching, and to me, that means just one thing: cold beers and warm beaches. Unfortunately for us Northern California population, the latter part of that glorious combination cannot always be relied on.

But beer, beer we can do. And boy, do we do it well. Anchor Steam is one of those wonderful local breweries that we San Franciscans boast. And thanks to SF Made Week, Anchor Steam Brewery is offering a FREE tour, RSVP for your space! The brewery is located at 1705 Mariposa St.

Free Artisinal Chocolate Tasting with Wine
There is something about this Friday and FREE tastings. After your Anchor Steam Brewery Tour, head over to the Press Club at 20 Yerba Buena Lane for a chocolate tasting featuring some of the country’s top artisanal producers. You’ll be able to taste everything from dark chocolate single origin bars to creative confections like chocolatey salt and pepper cookies. Sounds like the perfect dessert after a frosty beer!

And if you are one of the first hundred attendees, you will get a free taste of Late Harvest Zinfandel. Apparently, it’s the perfect wine for chocolate pairings. And all are welcome to enter the raffle to win a case of the wine! The tasting will take place from 6pm-9pm, read more about it here.
