First brewed in April of 1975 to commemorate the bicentennial of Paul Revere's historic ride, Liberty Ale® was the first modern American IPA brewed after prohibition. Some say it was the beer that started the craft beer revolution. Plenty of things have changed in San Francisco since 1975, but we’re still using the same pale malted barley, fresh whole-cone Cascade hops and a special top-fermenting yeast that give Liberty Ale ® its champagne-like bubbles, distinctive hop bouquet, and balanced character. A true benchmark, Anchor’s Liberty Ale ® is the original craft brewed ale.
We encourage responsible enjoyment of our beers.
