FREE Beer Tasting featuring Anchor Brewing Co

Did you know Anchor Steam® derives its name based off the original practice of fermenting beer on San Francisco’s rooftops in a cool climate? The foggy SF night air naturally cooled the fermenting beer, creating steam off the warm open pans. Today the name “steam” is a trademark of Anchor Brewing for their flagship original Anchor Steam® Beer. Come taste tradition! (Must be 21 or over/ tasting held in Specialty Department)
