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.
