Anchor Brewing Company will once again celebrate America’s first handcrafted beer, Anchor Steam® Beer, with the return of Drink Steam Week August 12-19, 2018. Back in 2015, the city of San Francisco proclaimed the third week of August to be Drink Steam Week, celebrating Anchor’s pioneering role in the American craft beer movement and continued commitment to brewing in San Francisco. In its fourth annual year, Drink Steam Week has continued to expand nationwide and will consist of events and happenings across the country celebrating Anchor’s rich history. See below for all the ways we’ll be celebrating in the Bay and beyond!
