Anchor Christmas Ale 2013

Anchor Christmas Ale 2013

November 6, 2013 | Designed by Jim Stitt

Today, Anchor Brewing Company is excited to announce the highly anticipated release of the 2013 Anchor Christmas Ale; a rich, dark spiced ale that marks the 39th year of this Anchor tradition.

Every year since 1975 Anchor has brewed a distinctive and unique Christmas Ale. The Ale’s secret recipe is different every year, as is the tree on the label, which is hand-drawn by local San Francisco artist James Stitt.

This year, Anchor Christmas Ale’s tree is the beautiful California White Fir. James Stitt 
has hand drawn thirty-eight of the thirty-nine Christmas Ale labels, each with a distinctive tree and a joyous wish: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Anchor brewers!

From November through mid-January, Anchor Christmas Ale is available in 6-packs, magnums, and on draught in select restaurants and bars across the U.S., as well as at the Anchor Brewing Taproom in San Francisco.

  1. Classy as always. Looking forward to my tour of the brewery on Thanksgiving Eve.

  2. The intentional use of occult symbolism and ritual (from PERSIA) is employed at “Christ-Mass” in the “name” of “Christ”, in everything from it’s “Solstice date” to it’s “Fig/Fir tree”, to it’s Baal Balls, to it’s Lucifer lights, all intentionally designed to reflect back to Persia’s Gan Edin, and the “tree of knowledge” (serpentine enlightenment) damned by God in Genesis 3. Many think the “spiritual effect” all this “produces” is the result of “the power of God”, just as the people of Samaria, had mistaken it, in the 1st century CE, in Acts 8:9-11.
