tasty seasonal from Anchor...
HUMMING is an ancient term, used centuries ago to describe both ales and beers. Although its origins are shrouded in mystery, it suits this bold hoppy ale, which we have created to celebrate the anniversary of our first brew at 1705 Mariposa Street. From that very day we were humming!
In 1965, we dedicated ourselves to reviving the nearly bankrupt, almost medieval little San Francisco brewery on 8th Street. By 1977, Anchor's small staff was making five unique beers in its tiny state-of-the-art facility. We purchased an old coffee-roasting plant on Mariposa, overseeing its gradual transformation into our "new" brewery. Finally, on August 13, 1979, our move was complete, we fired up the brewkettle, and Anchor Steam® had a new home—its sixth since 1896.
