Ian

An avid live music fan, I have always enjoyed a cold, tasty beer. I got into the craft brewing scene when the "micro brew" beers were not enough to quench my expanding palate and started experimenting and tasting beers from all over the world.... What I found, was that I really loved IPA's, consistently, more than any beer. In the last 13 years my knowledge of beer has grown exponentially, and what I have realized is that there is always more to try, and always beers that you fall in love with right away. I want to share this with you, bring you to some spots off the beaten path and help you to explore and discover some of the finest craft beers that San Francisco has to offer.

    The beer tastings were great, Ian was a fantastic host, sharing a lot of his knowledge about the city, and he gave us very precious tips for the rest of our vacation (food, drinks, sights, etc.). I would recommend this tour even to those who don't consider themselves beer lovers, you might find the right one for you this time!

    I had a great time going round the breweries with Ian. He was a good host and a fun guy. Lots of good beer knowledge and lots of good San Francisco knowledge too!

    I had a lot of fun. I have never been to San Fran and Ian showed us to a really good time. The group was diverse and the beers were delicious. Ian is a really fun guy and super knowledgeable about the beers. Ian feels like a long time friend even know I had just met him. In other words, a good guy to grab a beer with.

    Ian was an absolutely fantastic host. Very knowledgeable on beer and food and took us to three great tastings. He also had some great food and activity suggestions for the rest of our stay. I hope he will show us around again when we are next in the city?

    Ian was great fun and very friendly. As there were only two of us booked on this experience, he bought some friends along who were also awesome. We went to three very cool bars and had a private brewery tour at one. Would heartily recommend!

    I was travelling alone, so the beer tour was a great opportunity to meet locals and to enjoy the City and its different beers :) Ian was a great guide and gave me also a lot of recommendations for the next days in and around San Francisco! We had so much fun!! Would book this event again!

    My Dad & I and a couple of friends had a blast on the brewery/pub tour with Ian. He was super friendly, knowledgeable and the places we went were great. Even though it was a Saturday and the tap rooms were busy he had made reservations so we had tours booked and a table waiting for us which we really appreciated. The whole day was very personal and didn't feel touristy at all, which is perfect if you are looking for a real/local San Francisco experience. And the beers were great! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who likes beer and wants to get a feel for the San Francisco micro-brewing culture.
