About Anchor Steam® Beer

Anchor Steam’s roots extend to the California Gold Rush, when primitive conditions and the lack of ice forced lager-beer brewers to improvise and ferment their beer on San Francisco’s rooftops. The chilly, foggy weather naturally cooled the fermenting beer creating steam off the warm open pans. A San Francisco Original and a world classic, Anchor Steam is America’s first craft beer.

Today, Anchor Steam is brewed with pale and caramel two-row barley malt, Northern Brewer whole-cone hops and Anchor’s own lager yeast in a solid copper brewhouse. The beer is then fermented in shallow open-air fermenters and gently carbonated in Anchor’s cellar through an all-natural, traditional process called kräusening. First brewed in 1896, Anchor Steam (4.9% ABV) appeared in bottles in 1971 and displayed the now iconic hand-drawn image of an anchor framed by hops and barley.
