Anchor seasonal. Red ale brewed with maple syrup. Big Leaf maple Autumn Red: A distinctive red ale brewed with maple syrup. Our fall seasonal, Big Leaf Maple Autumn Red, was inspired by a native California tree, its incredible leaves, its delicious syrup, and the colors of fall. Bigleaf maple thrives along the banks of California's mountain streams. Native Californians once made rope and baskets from its bark. Today, artisans handcraft its wood and burl into custom guitars. In autumn, its huge leaves, up to a foot across, can display a full range of color as they slowly turn from green to gold to red. Bigleaf maple sugaring in California dates to the 1800s; yet this tree's unusually flavorful syrup remains the product of a small group of hobbyists. A hint of maple - including bigleaf maple - syrup in every brew perfectly complements the malty complexity, balanced hoppiness, and rich fall hue of Big Leaf Maple Autumn Red a red ale like no other.

Anchor Summer is the first American wheat beer in modern times. Our first brew of this light and refreshing beer was in the summer of 1984. Anchor Summer is an all-malt beer, and over 50% of its malt comes from malted wheat. It is fermented with a traditional top-fermenting ale yeast because we prefer the clean flavors developed by this yeast. We believe that this style celebrates the refreshingly light flavor of malted wheat. You may notice that the head on this beer is unusually abundant, with a consistency similar to whipped egg whites. This is due to protein contributed by the wheat. The brewers at Anchor are proud to have revived not only rich hearty dark beers, but also this light crisp style of a modern American wheat beer. Made in San Francisco.
