We’re very excited to announce our second limited edition collaboration brew with the San Francisco Giants, Los Gigantes, a crisp, clean, and crushable Mexican style lager.

Baseball and San Francisco have gone hand in hand for more than 100 years. With roots that date back to the California Gold Rush, Anchor is intrinsically tied to the city and has been enjoyed by Giants fans for decades. Anchor Brewing and the Giants have been official partners since 2011, combining two quintessential San Francisco traditions: Brews and Baseball. Los Gigantes was inspired by the vibrancy and diversity of the city and Giants’ fan base.  An easy-drinking beer, it is the perfect ballpark brew, combining a light maltiness with crisp, refreshing flavor.

“Los Gigantes is a San Francisco Giants nickname known and loved by many fans,” said Anchor Brewmaster Scott Ungermann. “We knew it would be a perfect complement to this Giants-inspired Mexican style lager. The beer’s recipe combines a blend of 2-row pale malt, flaked maize, and Cluster and Tettnang hops.  The result is a crisp, refreshing lager that is light and easy-drinking.  It’s the perfect choice for game day or any fiesta that comes your way.”

Los Gigantes is the second release in a series celebrating the long-standing partnership between Anchor Brewing and the San Francisco Giants.  This year’s Mexican lager is the perfect ballpark companion for all 9 innings.

LosGigantes-Can16oz-Front-HRLos Gigantes arrives in select markets just in time for the 2017 Major League Baseball season on draught and in 12 oz. and 16 oz. cans, marking Anchor’s first ever release of 16 oz. cans.  The packaging boasts a strikingly unique Los Gigantes design that Giants fans will come to know and love. The beer is available at select bars, restaurants, and stores in Northern California, Nevada, and Hawaii, as well as at the Anchor Brewing Taproom and Anchor Brewing Beer Garden at The Yard in San Francisco. Find Los Gigantes using the Anchor Beer Finder.

How about for us SF transplants living in the Giants Spring Training home of Scottsdale, AZ?????

Will you be producing tshirts? my husband and I are raving fans of Anchor and the Giants! In fact there was a time when my husband lived in SF that he came to your brewery tour every Friday. Please let us know how we being in San Diego we can procure some t-shirts, beer and any other items around this fun release.
Thanks – Katie and Chuck Pegot

I’m a Chicano baseball historian from San Francisco and a home brewer, living in Seattle! I wish I had a case of these bad hombres! ❤❤❤

Love this beer! I am a lager lover, a native San Franciscan and a Giants fan. I can celebrate it all in this one delicious beverage. The tall cans are a decided plus.
