First brewed in 1975 – on the 200th anniversary of Paul Revere’s famous ride, Liberty Ale from Anchor Brewing is the first modern American IPA (Indian Pale Ale) to be brewed after the dark days of prohibition. It’s also the first single-hop ale and dry-hopped ale to be introduced to the United States. Liberty Ale is craft brewed in the heart of San Francisco, CA accodring to strict traditional brewing methods, and uses only natural ingredients, including – pale malted barley, fresh whole-cone Cascade hops and a special top-fermenting yeast, and water.Photo Credit: @AnchorBrewing on Instagram In the 1960s, Anchor was perhaps the most primitive small brewery in the world, but by 1971—the year they began bottling Anchor Steam beer they had perhaps the most modern small brewery in the world, with state-of-the-art quality control systems in place to ensure that their beers are always pure and fresh, from brewing, through finishing, packaging and transporting.
