San Francisco, CA (March 15, 2016) – Today, Anchor Brewing Company announces the return of the California Craft-Pack, a unique mixed 6-pack featuring two cans each of Anchor California Lager®, Liberty Ale®, and the newly released Go West! IPA™.

Designed for beer fans to sample three legendary brews from America’s first craft brewery, the California Craft-Pack brings Anchor favorites together in one convenient offering. The California Craft-Pack first appeared on the market in limited quantities in the summer of 2015, and returns now in time with the national release of Go West! IPA, an adventurous new IPA inspired by the California Gold Rush and all those who Go West! A nod to the beloved past and present brews from America’s first craft brewery, the variety pack is perfect for entertaining or hosting a fun beer tasting among friends.

“When we created the California Craft-Pack, we wanted to create something that gave consumers a true taste of the past, present, and future of Anchor,” said Anchor Brewmaster Scott Ungermann. “We decided to include Liberty Ale, the first modern American IPA, and California Lager, a re-creation of the first lager brewed in California. Each beer is a nod to our brewing roots. With the addition of Go West! IPA, our newest release, we’re toasting to the future of IPAs. Brewed using an all-new dry-hopping technique, Go West! IPA is an adventurous, hop-forward beer. Together, these three beers make an exceptional mixed collection that is perfect for a shared or solo tasting.”

The California Craft-Pack will be available nationwide starting in March at select retailers and at Anchor Brewing in San Francisco. In addition to this offering, the California Craft-Pack is available in 12-Pack and 24-Loose bottles featuring, Anchor Steam Beer®, Anchor California Lager, Liberty Ale and Go West! IPA.

About Anchor Brewing Company

Anchor Brewing Company’s roots date back to the California Gold Rush making it one of America’s oldest breweries. Its Anchor Steam® Beer is San Francisco’s original since 1896. In 1965, Fritz Maytag acquired and revived the struggling brewery at a time when mass production of beer dominated and seemed unstoppable. Maytag started a revolution in beer that originated today’s craft beer movement. An undisputed icon, Anchor is America’s first craft brewery where beers are handmade in our traditional copper brewhouse from an all-malt mash. At Anchor, we practice the time-honored art of classical brewing, employing state-of-the-art methods to ensure that our beers are always pure and fresh. We know of no brewery in the world that matches our efforts to combine traditional, natural brewing with such carefully applied, modern methods of sanitation, finishing, packaging and transporting.
