Anchor Christmas 2015

2015 is the 41st year of Anchor Christmas. Each year, the beer, just like the label, is different.

For 41 years, Anchor Christmas has featured a different tree on each label, hand drawn by Bay Area artist James Stitt. Stitt has been drawn the labels since 1975.

This is the forty-first annual “Our Special Ale” from the brewers at Anchor. It is sold only from early November to mid-January. The Ale’s recipe is different every year, as is the tree on the label, but he intent with which we offer it remains the same: joy and celebration of the newness of life. Since the ancient times, tree have symbolized the winter solstice when the earth, with its seasons, appear born anew.
