The City of San Francisco Proclaims August 16-23 as Drink Steam Week

Posted by at 4:06 pm | Category: San Francisco 0


August 2015 marks an important milestone for Anchor Brewing Company. Fifty years ago Fritz Maytag acquired and revived our San Francisco brewery, igniting a movement that would lead to today’s American Craft Brewing Revolution. In honor of this historic event, the Mayor’s office for the city and county of San Francisco has officially proclaimed August 16-23, 2015 as Anchor Brewing Company Week (or as we like to call it, “Drink Steam Week”).


To commemorate this milestone and proclamation, we’ve created a variety of events taking place throughout San Francisco to ensure that Anchor fans will have the opportunity to toast to America’s First Craft Beer – Anchor Steam.

Here are some ways to join the celebration:

August 16 – 23
