Posted by at 12:24 am | Category: Events, San Francisco 0

Anchor Brewing Company will once again celebrate America’s first craft beer, Anchor Steam® Beer, with the return of Drink Steam Week August 14-21, 2016.

In 2015, the Mayor of San Francisco proclaimed the third week of August to be Drink Steam Week, celebrating Anchor’s contribution to craft beer in America and continued commitment to brewing in San Francisco. This year, we’re celebrating Drink Steam Week nationwide, so grab an Anchor Steam and #RaiseYourAnchor to America’s first craft beer where ever you are! #DrinkSteam
