While these are fine California beers, might have been better to focus on the microbrews in San Francisco proper.
If you want to talk beer I think Portland, Oregon is an excellent choice. When are you coming? The family can meet up
I enjoyed my trip to sf and was lucky enough to visit Russian river. One of the best breweries I've been too, the sampler itself is huge and the good was awesome! Not even as expensive as other Breweries either!
