Anchor Brewing RSS feed for this section

Anchor BrewingAnchor Brewing Company’s roots date back to the California Gold Rush making it one of America’s oldest breweries. Its Anchor Steam® Beer is San Francisco’s original since 1896. In 1965, Fritz Maytag acquired and revived the struggling brewery at a time when mass production of beer dominated and seemed unstoppable. Maytag started a revolution in beer that originated today’s craft beer movement. An undisputed icon, Anchor is America’s first craft brewery where beers are handmade in our traditional copper brewhouse from an all-malt mash. At Anchor, we practice the time-honored art of classical brewing, employing state-of-the-art methods to ensure that our beers are always pure and fresh. We know of no brewery in the world that matches our efforts to combine traditional, natural brewing with such carefully applied, modern methods of sanitation, finishing, packaging and transporting.

Review – Anchor Liberty Ale

After having this brew on tap at The Other Room in Venice Beach, CA, I became reacquainted with this simple yet well crafted brew. It reminds me of an English style pale ale, although there are things about it, besides the name, that give it its own American characteristics. With the exception of Anchor Steam, […]
