Anchor Distilling Company

In a time when we are often looking for the next local thing, a cool story with gravitas and something we can discover and share with friends, it is good to be reminded of the pioneers.


Such pioneers are opening their doors to show

Kind of like a Willy Wonka moment, without the obnoxious children or lessons, Anchor distilling has opened their doors to welcome lovers of their products, and their friends for an experience going farther than the normal tasting room experience.  You don’t have to drive (or be driven) to one of our various wonderful wine regions, but a quick trip up Potrero Hill to discover for yourselves what it is to be a part of Anchor distilling.


From long-time makers of blue cheese Fritz Maytag moved west and revived a brewery long in disrepair.  From Beer to Whiskey and Whiskey to other spirits the company has embraced craft, quality, and community together.


Now under the guidance of CEO Dennis Carr and Head Distiller Bruce Joseph, Anchor Distilling Company has paved the gravel and calmed the seas for others to follow.
