Anchor 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 their traditional copper brewhouse from an all-malt mash. At Anchor, they practice the time-honored art of classical brewing, employing state-of-the-art methods to ensure that the beers are always pure and fresh. One would be hard pressed to find another brewery in the world that matches Anchor’s efforts to combine traditional, natural brewing with such carefully applied, modern methods of sanitation, finishing, packaging and transporting.

Anchor Brewing remains one of the most traditional breweries in America, a pioneer of the craft brewing movement. Though its top beers—especially Anchor Steam® Beer—are known throughout the world, they are all still handmade in Anchor’s handsome copper brewhouse in San Francisco, California.
