Anchor Brewing Celebrates the 2013 Baseball Season with a Limited Edition Anchor Steam® San Francisco Giants 12-Pack
June 19, 2013
San Francisco, CA (June 17, 2013) – Anchor Brewing announces its latest collaboration with the San Francisco Giants –a limited edition Anchor Steam® San Francisco Giants 12-Pack.
On March 26, 1903–seven years after Anchor Brewing began making Anchor Steam® Beer near San Francisco’s Russian Hill–the team that would become known as the San Francisco Seals played its first Pacific Coast League game. Since that fateful day, Anchor Steam Beer has become inextricably linked with the Bay Area baseball experience as San Francisco’s beer.
In recent years, Anchor Brewing has partnered with the two-time World Series Champion, San Francisco Giants. Together these iconic San Francisco institutions created the Anchor Plaza and Taproom at AT&T Park which serves Anchor Steam®, Liberty Ale®, and more alongside Anchor’s latest introduction, Anchor California Lager®. The partnership was recently renewed through the 2017 season and expanded to include the introduction of an Anchor Brewing suite experience at AT&T Park as well as the Anchor Corral at Scottsdale Stadium, the Spring Training home of the Giants.
In celebration of the SF Giants’ 2013 season and our longstanding partnership, Anchor Brewing has released a limited edition Anchor Steam 12-Pack with specially designed packaging. The commemorative pack features the team’s colors and logos along with the brews and baseball history notes printed on an interior flap. Fans can cut along the sides of the box for instant signs to cheer on their team during games. Lift the pack and fans will find the Giants game schedule printed on the underside.
This limited edition SF Giants 12-pack is available now and throughout the season while supplies last at major grocery outlets; including: Safeway, Lucky Save Mart, Bevmo, Molly Stones and Raley’s Grocery throughout Northern California, Nevada, southern Oregon, and Hawaii.

About Anchor Brewing Company
Anchor Brewing Company’s roots date back to the California gold rush making it one of America’s oldest craft breweries. Its Anchor Steam® Beer is San Francisco’s original since 1896. In 1965, Fritz Maytag acquired and revived the struggling brewery at a time when mass production of beer dominated and seemed unstoppable. Maytag started a revolution in beer that originated today’s craft beer movement. An undisputed icon, Anchor is America’s first craft brewery where beers are handmade in our traditional copper brewhouse from an all-malt mash. At Anchor, we practice the time-honored art of classical brewing, employing state-of-the-art methods to ensure that our beers are always pure and fresh. We know of no brewery in the world that matches our efforts to combine traditional, natural brewing with such carefully applied, modern methods of sanitation, finishing, packaging and transporting.
