3. Sample award-winning spirits at America’s original craft distillery (Alameda, CA)
St. George Spirits won’t be the last boozy checkpoint on this route, but it’s definitely our favorite. Take a tour of the distillery, housed in a 65,000-square-foot airplane hangar, to learn about how craft spirits are made—we promise you’ll learn a lot beyond, y’know, the ample sampling. Finish things off on a high note with a tasting of the label’s award-winning gin, vodka, absinthe, brandy, and liqueurs (we highly recommend the Green Chile Vodka, Terroir Gin, and Pear Brandy).
You can also purchase light snacks after the tasting or bring your own food to munch on outside, where you’ll also be treated to a stellar view of the San Francisco skyline. Just sleep off the booze before you put the keys back in the ignition, OK? OK.Back to top
