Long-known as a "foodie" city that practically invented the organic food movement, San Francisco is applying the same love and devotion she's had towards food to another favorite pastime: drinking.
Just as the organic food movement was defined by local and sustainable ingredients, the trend in most San Francisco bars is to offer locally made beers and spirits. For example, many visitors are familiar with San Francisco's local beer Anchor Steam. Local bars are not only stocking this popular brew, but also adding the small-batch, traditionally distilled spirits of Anchor Distilling Company, as well.
