South of S.F. – Beer by CalTrain
We started by listing good craft beer destinations via BART, the Bay Area Rapid Transit system. Of course, if you go to the southernmost BART station on the west side of the bay, Millbrae station, you can transfer to CalTrain, and the San Francisco Peninsula opens up to you. You can start from San Jose or Silicon Valley just as easily, and make your way up to BART.
CalTrain runs less frequently than BART, but you can actually eat and drink on their trains if you like, unlike on BART. Get out and try some real local west coast ales and craft brews within walking distance of public transit, and you could even get a growler to go and some paper cups to carry onto the train if you’re so inclined.
Here’s our growing list of good beer destinations near CalTrain — an easy transfer from Millbrae BART for your pleasure and reference if you’re starting from the north.
