America’s first craft brewery is proud to launch a limited edition of uniquely Anchor brews, the Anchor Argonaut Collection.
Argonauts were the legendary heroes who sailed with Jason on the Argo in quest of the Golden Fleece. During the California Gold Rush, this ancient word was re-imagined to include those hardy pioneers who journeyed westward by ship or prairie schooner in search of adventure, fortune, and a new life. For 2015, there will be three brand new brews released throughout the year. Find them at the same retailer outlets you currently buy Anchor beers or use our beer finder to search near you.
Anchor Barrel Ale
This ale is our tribute to pioneer brewer, distiller, and visionary Fritz Maytag. In 1965—at twenty-seven—he rescued America’s smallest, most traditional brewery, igniting a revolution in craft brewing that continues today. With the founding of Anchor Distilling in 1993, Fritz blazed a new trail toward the creation of craft-distilled whiskeys and gins.Read more

Flying Cloud San Francisco Stout
The stouts savored in Gold Rush San Francisco were no ordinary ales. They were export stouts—dark, intense, high-gravity brews created to survive the long voyage around Cape Horn. Inspired by this unique history, Flying Cloud San Francisco Stout™ is a Dublin-style brew made with English Maris Otter pale malt, two black malts, and flaked barley. Nugget and Golding hops provide a spicy, floral complement to the deep, dark-chocolaty maltiness and dry finish.Read more
