We love our building. It was built in 1937 in a beautiful, art deco style and became a coffee roastery. By 1977, Anchor had five products, a dozen employees and had nearly outgrown its most recent brewery on 8th Street. After a long search, owner Fritz Maytag purchased our current building. On August 13, 1979, Anchor brewed its first Steam® Beer at its new home in San Francisco's Potrero Hill, which remains our home today.
We encourage responsible enjoyment of our beers.
