If you are looking for an apartment for sale in San Francisco, you may be a beer lover. In reality, you are probably a craft beer lover. You patronize the creations of micro breweries. You want to live in San Francisco because, per capita, it has more micro breweries than any other city in any state in the United States.
A Brewing Past
San Francisco has always had a love affair with beer. Even two centuries ago, it was doing its part to keep the industry thriving. According to statistics, the city had almost 24 breweries in 1896 – over 100 during its time from the Gold Rush to the present. The 1906 Earthquake put paid to many of them, but others survived – only to be wiped out by the great experiment that failed – Prohibition.
In the 1950s, the breweries began to reestablish themselves. Yet, the greatest impact on the city and even the nation was the establishment of the craft beer movement. It began in 1965 with the purchase of Anchor Brewing by Fritz Maytag. From that point onwards, San Francisco craft beers began to flourish.
