Anchor Brewing has extended its partnership with the California State Parks Foundation, and we hope you’ll join us in our efforts to preserve and protect state parks. Through September, Anchor fans can become CPSF members at a special rate (just $20), and get a FREE CA State Parks hikers’ guide. Sign up by visiting calparks.org/anchor.
“Enjoying our state’s natural beauty is a fundamental part of the California lifestyle,” said CEO and President of Anchor Brewing, Matt Davenport. “We strive to make beer that inspires people to go outdoors and Anchor California Lager is a perfect example of that. Anchor Brewing is dedicated to its role as a steward for environmental conservation, preserving California’s natural heritage and outdoor lifestyle for generations to come.”
Anchor employees have joined CSPF staff for volunteer days at Fort Ross, Half Moon Bay, Candlestick Point and China Camp State Parks, with more to come. And we’ve committed a portion of the proceeds from sales of Anchor California Lager to support California State Parks. Anchor California Lager was inspired by the first genuine lager made in California during the late 19th century, enjoyed by early settlers who were captured by the state’s stunning environment. We’re similarly taken by California’s diverse terrain and our partnership with CSPF has significantly furthered Anchor’s role in environmental stewardship. Together, we celebrate and protect California’s enduring natural heritage.
We’re happy to say, in the past year the partnership has helped fund three important grants:
- Citizens for East Shore Parks is funding a study on land birds and habitat in the Albany Bulb.
- The Jack London Park Partners grant will help update and modernize The House of Happy Walls Museum, the park’s main visitor center and museum.
- The Santa Barbara County Trails Council will add an entrance sign, kiosk, trail markers, and maps for an underutilized area of El Capitán State Beach, making it more accessible for the public.
