Like many breweries, each December San Francisco's Anchor Steam Brewery proudly unveils its new Christmas Beer. The city's oldest Craft Brewery offers its faithful customers a new take on its Holiday Brew – a tradition dating back to 1975! And part of this tradition is a new Christmas tree each year – this year’s fir is a Korean Pine – a symbol of peace.
From deep within the inviting chocolate-brown body, beneath a creamy tan head, "Our Special Ale 2018" breathes big burned sugar and festive spice notes, with just a sweet slice of banana loaf cake.
The rich, velvety body paints a similar picture, with sweet toffee malts and warm bittersweet chocolate tones galore. There's also a delicious nutty quality that leads you gently but firmly to a satisfying spiced finish.
And now it's a vailable in a 1.5 litre Magnum to share the festive spirit!
