Whiskies of the World Is Sold Out, but Here Are Events Where You Can Score a Taste

The forecast may be full of dark, cold days and rain, but this weekend Whiskies of the World expo is the perfect shelter from the storm: three levels aboard the San Francisco Belle (Hornblower Cruises) with 30 distilleries and producers of grain spirits pouring a few hundred different bottles. Although the main event has sadly sold out, here are a few related happenings to quench your whisky thirst:

Anchor Brewery and Distillery Tour and Tasting
Where: Anchor Brewing Co., 1705 Mariposa (at De Haro)
When: 1:30 p.m.
Cost: Reservations required, email: anchor@whiskiesoftheworld.com

The rundown: An exclusive look at San Francisco's most celebrated whiskey distillery. The first distillery in the US to produce a 100% rye pot-distilled whisky in the style of founding father George Washington. With custom built stills constructed to resemble the ones found in Washington's Mt. Vernon estate, Anchor's small batch whiskey is some of the most interesting and delicious around.
