Thirsty ‘49ers savored the best imported IPAs, but it wasn’t until 1975 that Anchor, Americas' original craft brewery, pioneered the revival of dry-hopped handmade ales. Now, that tradition fast-forwards to an adventurous new brew: Anchor IPA™.
Anchor IPA™ is made with 2-row barley malt and fresh whole-cone hops, its bright amber color, distinctively complex aroma, spiky bitterness, malty depth, and clean finish unite to create a uniquely flavorful, memorable, and timeless craft IPA. 6.5%
America’s first craft brewery took shape during the Gold Rush, when German Gottlieb Brekle transformed a beer-and-billiards saloon into a brewery in 1871. Today, as one of the most traditional breweries in America, Anchor continues to produce beer handmade from an all-malt mash in their traditional copper brewhouse. Beers such as Liberty Ale, Anchor Porter, and Anchor Steam Beer are known and appreciated throughout the world.
