    Great distillery tour and tasting. First distillery in the U.S. To make absinthe so take it for a spin.

    Anyone who knows anything about booze knows that St. George Spirits is one of the best places to visit to learn about spirits. They are most famously the makers of Hangar One vodka, available in a number of amazing flavors. They also create other premium liquors such as Breaking & Entering Bourbon, two kinds of gin, rum and a really killer absinthe. Tours are $15 and include a tasting with a changing menu. The guides are always hilarious (the best factory tour guides I've ever encountered) and the guys who run this place are all super friendly.

    You can drive here (there is plenty of parking), but if you're coming from the city, taking the Bay Ferry may be the smartest bet. It's only $6something each way and it drops you off about a mile away (30 minute walk that cuts through the Navy Base entrance -- very cool). Snacks are available if you need to sober up.

    St. George Distillery has a fantastic tour of their facility perched on the edge of Alameda Island. Taste a wide selection of their spirits, including their well known Absinthe, and take in the view of San Francisco. The tour is $15 and the tasting is free, but that will change on the 1st of January 2014.

    Really cool company, makes some great vodka (Hanger One). You can visit the distillery here in Alameda and do some vodka tasting. Sweet. They also make an absinthe, which for some reason or another is legal again here in the U.S. Be sure to check out the rest of the abandoned U.S. Navy base as well. Lots of cool old buildings all over the place. Like a ghost town.
