The lively reception included a variety of bites to pair with Anchor's famed lineup of brews, including their wildly popular California Lager. SF Beer Week showcases the many urban breweries in the Bay Area that produce award-winning, internationally-heralded beverages with a bevy or workshops, tastings, seminars, and events.
SF's own Anchor Brewing Company has a worldwide reputation as the locus of the current craft beer movement, but many fans of Anchor's brews may not know that founder Fritz Maytag was also a trendsetter in craft distilling. Since 1993, a micro-distillery located on the Mariposa Street brewery's ground floor has put out a small, well-curated selection of handmade hooch.
As part of SF Beer Week, Anchor Brewing is opening its doors February 16th for an invite-only 140th anniversary party and unveiling of their newest brew, Brekle's Brown Ale. Wanna go? 7x7 would like to invite 5 newsletter subscribers chosen at random to join us at Anchor (we'll pick 5 people who are signed up at random).
