Anchor Brewing Co.’s Anchor Steam clone

This beer takes its name from the days when beer was made in the cool climate of San Francisco on rooftops in the nineteenth century—open vessels were used to help cool the beer quickly. Steam is the beer that convinced Fritz Maytag to buy the brewery in 1965 and carry on the brewing tradition that started there in the late 1800s. It features a deep amber color and Northern Brewer hops.
