Anchor Steam Beer

7/10

Brewed in San Francisco since 1896. This is a fantastic beer for a hot day. 

Anchor is one of the smallest breweries in the world. 

The short & chubby bottles are a nice alternative to the long, thin bottles we’re used to in the UK. 

The beer is light and refreshing. But there is a rich smoothness to it with a malty after taste. Very plesant!

Anchor Steam brand beer derives its unusual name from the 19th century when steam seems to have been a nickname for the beer brewed on the west coast of America under primitive conditions without ice. 

The story on the bottle sounds like a load of BS to me but it’s a really clean and rich beer. Grab one if you can!
