Where to Get Beer for Takeout and Delivery in San Francisco

A running list of local six-packs, crowlers, and growlers to go 

Beer from Anchor Brewing Anchor Brewing

SF has a tall and strong list of local breweries, pouring everything from classic steam lagers to hoppy and hazy West Coast IPAs. With the current shelter-in-place, it might feel like everyone is drinking more than ever, but unfortunately, small craft breweries have still suffered a dramatic drop in business. So for beer lovers, it’s more important than ever to support their hometown favorites. Plenty of local beer is available through grocery stores or on takeout menus around town, of course — but rather than give a hefty cut to a grocery store chain or a delivery apps, consider tapping straight into the source.

Here’s a running list of breweries currently offering takeout and delivery in San Francisco. Things are changing day by day, so before venturing out, please call ahead or check social media to confirm that the brewery you’re seeking is still open for business. If you have a spot to add or see a place that has closed, please drop us a line.

Ales Unlimited, the craft beer store in a historic building in Pac Heights, is still open for business. (Although their second location, the Beer Basement in the Tenderloin, has temporarily boarded up.) No delivery, but walk right in.

Anchor Brewing might be owned by Sapporo these days, but it’s still one of America’s oldest craft breweries, going strong for more than a century. The SF institution is now offering six-packs, boxes, crowlers, and growlers to go. Pickups are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Anchor Public Taps, which is their taproom across the street from the brewery.

Barebottle Brewing Co in Bernal Heights, known for their fruity and hazy IPAs, is open for pickup, delivery, or shipping.

Barrel Head Brewhouse, the double-decker brewpub in NoPa, is doing takeout only, with some sweet happy hour deals for the neighborhood, with $3 beers from 4 to 6 daily.

The Beer Hall, the mid-Market taproom that’s ideally situated to grab a pint before a show, is offering brews for pickup. Order online and swing by on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

Black Hammer Brewing, the pup-friendly brewery and tasting room in SoMa, is now doing next-day pickup, as well as shipping to the entire state of California. And big news: They’re about to launch their new Sparkle Pony Belgian Blonde.

Cellarmaker, home of outstandingly hoppy IPAs and square pizza, has closed down its SoMa location, but is still doing to-go orders from its Bernal Heights spot.

City Beer Store, the city’s generously stocked bottle shop, is doing curbside pickup from its spacious new location on Mission Street. They’ve got a full kitchen now, so don’t forget the “snacky snacks” (think of the tots).

The Crafty Fox Ale House has rolled up the garage door in the Mission and is now serving burgers and brews for both pickup and delivery. Because what is a crowler without a Korean fried chicken sandwich?

Ferment Drink Repeat, the small-batch brewery in sunny Portola, is offering pickup for growlers and home brewing kits.

Fool’s Errand, the favorite beer and wine spot on Divis, has opened up the front as a window. The short list of local beers refreshes often, so check Instagram stories for the latest. It’s mostly walk up, but for orders of $100 or more, the shop will do delivery for a $10 fee.

Harmonic Brewing is offering cans and crowlers for pickup from its big industrial space in Dogpatch, and is delivering to SF, Marin, East Bay, and San Mateo on Fridays and Saturdays.

Laughing Monk has got pickup and delivery of its Cali-Belgian crossovers, freshly brewed out of the Bayview.

Liquid Gold is still pouring out handsome beer, wine, and cider for the Tender Nob. Order online for pick up at the front door.

Local Brewing near the ballpark has got those wild West Coast IPAs available for takeout, as cans, crowlers, or growlers, and along with sausages and salads.

Magnolia Brewing, now owned by New Belgium, has closed its big, industrial Dogpatch location, but is still serving from its original restaurant on Haight. Longtime fans can order singles, six-packs, or crowlers to go, along with serious fried chicken.

Monks Kettle, the Belgian-leaning brewpub on 16th Street in the Mission, has opened up a pickup window for takeout and delivery. There’s a deep list of wine, beer, and cider, and what is a pint without pretzel knots?

Pi Bar, that chill Valencia hangout with good beer, good pizza, and nerd specials at 3.14 in the afternoon, has now got a limited takeout menu. Call 415-970-9670 to order beer and pies for pickup.

Pine Street Brewery, the microbrewery born out of an apartment kitchen, has cracked open delivery for SF, the East Bay, and the Peninsula. Order online for drop offs on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday.

Richmond Republic Draught House has still got strong pints and comfort food for the avenues. Order online for pickup and delivery, and don’t forget the deviled eggs and fried brussels.

San Francisco Brewing Co. in historic Ghirardelli Square has got beer, wine, and even hand sanitizer out for home delivery, covering a lot of quarantine needs. They’re sweeping the Bay, hitting SF and Marin on Fridays, East Bay on Thursdays, and the Peninsula on Wednesdays.

Seven Stills brewery and distillery is busy making hand sanitizer, but they’ve still got good beer, whiskey, and pub eats, available for takeout or delivery from its massive new Mission Bay location.

Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, the Prohibition-inspired brewery in the Bayview, is letting customers pick up six packs and kegs. Stock up on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
