Posted by at 5:57 pm | Category: Events, San Francisco 0

Anchor Brewing Company will once again celebrate Anchor Steam Beer, with the return of Drink Steam Week August 13-20, 2017. Back in 2015, the Mayor of San Francisco proclaimed the third week of August to be Drink Steam Week, celebrating Anchor’s pioneering role in the American beer industry and continued commitment to brewing in San Francisco. In its third annual year, Drink Steam Week has continued to expand nationwide and will consist of events and happenings across the country, so grab a pint and #RaiseYourAnchor to history that you can taste. #DrinkSteam
