Best Distillery Tasting Room 

St. George Spirits

Located in an old airplane hangar on Alameda's former Naval Air Station, the St. George Spirits tasting-room bar looks across the abandoned Navy airstrips to the San Francisco skyline. The St. George staff also makes the experience a superb way to spend part of an afternoon: The bartenders, together with managers Lou Bustamante and Andie Ferman (aka the Vodka Vixen), keep your experience educational and entertaining. Through large windows, you might catch distillers Lance Winters and Dave Smith mixing, checking, tasting, and adjusting along huge, beautiful copper stills. They host free informal tours of the distillery on weekends starting at 1 p.m. for $10, which includes a glass and one "flight" of brandy, vodka, whiskey, liqueur, or absinthe to taste.
