Locally-owned, woman-owned walking food tour company Edible Excursions is thrilled to introduce its newest culinary experience: the Temescal Beers and Bites walking (and drinking) food tour, the company’s first to focus on craft beer. The tour has been curated and will be led by Paul Bosky, a Temescal resident and longtime homebrewing enthusiast.
Guests will sample two to three fresh beers tastes at four stops, and have the option to buy additional Pilsners, Saisons, Kolsches, Dubbels, and IPAs as they roam. Food tastes may include beer-friendly charcuterie, pizza, gourmet popcorn, garlic “bombs”, and an inspired craft root beer float. Stops are subject to change, but may include Rose’s Taproom, a shiny new taproom gem in the heart of the district, Hogs Apothecary, a neighborhood pub and taproom sporting at least 33 California craft beers and a snout-to-tail approach to food, Temescal Brewing, the first commercial microbrewery in the neighborhood, Arthur Mac’s Tap and Snack, an outdoor beer garden and eatery footsteps from MacArthur BART, and Lanesplitter Pizza, a classic spot for craft beer and food.

Public tours launch August 2017 on Sunday afternoons, 1pm-4:30pm. The tour will travel along Telegraph avenue between 51st Street and 40th Street, and along 40th Street between MLK Blvd. and Broadway. $110 per person covers all drinks, food, and taxes.

Edible Excursions Stirs Up Craft Cocktail Tour with Bitters-Making Class | The Newest Trend in the Craft Cocktail Movement Introduced to San Francisco's Award-Winning Tour Company

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. – October 14, 2015 – Edible Excursions’ popular Craft Cocktail Tour of downtown San Francisco has been revamped, offering guests an opportunity to play mixologist by creating their own concoctions with a hands-on bitters class.

Cocktail connoisseur and tour guide M. Quinn Sweeney – whose online store Libation Lab offers an array of cocktail accessories including etched glass bottles, DIY cocktail kits, and custom bar tools – provides tasty tinctures to experiment with, allowing guests to find the perfect bitters blend to take home in their very own custom-etched bottle (sample recipes will be provided). Sip on Cantina’s classic pisco punch to garner inspiration for your own creation; indulge in San Francisco’s best banh mi sandwich from Fresh Brew Coffee and nibble on a sausage sampler from Hogwash Restaurant as you mix and match flavors.

Following the bitters class, the extended happy hour will continue on through the city, stopping into Rx for a pain killin’ cocktail from their medicinal-inspired menu. Next, we’ll visit Rye for something off the “secret menu” – the basil gimlet. A seasonal cocktail will top off the visit.

“San Francisco has always been a popular drinking town due to the city’s long history in libations and current cocktail renaissance,” said Lisa Rogovin, Founder and CEO of Edible Excursions. “Bitters have become the next big thing in the cocktail world, so we’re thrilled to introduce this new component to our tour. It’s a great takeaway from the tour, and encourages guests to get creative at home as well.”

Edible Excursions’ Craft Cocktail Tour runs Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. and costs $119/person. Private, custom tours are available for groups, including corporate team building outings, birthday parties, bachelorette celebrations, and more. Book your tour today at
