Notes:
Anchor has a strange bottling code on their bottles. You can match it up as follows:

First = last digit of the year.

Second = month code (J=January, F=February, M=March, A=April,Y=MaY, U=JUne,L=JuLy,G=AuGust,S=September, O=October, N=November, D=December)

Third = day of month code (Letters A-Z = 1-26, Numbers 7-1 = 27, 28, 29, 30, 31)

While I've not been to the brewery for a visit (it is a bucket list-item though), and though I've not tried all of Anchor's beers, the several I've had have been really, really, damn good! Not a stinker in the group. Solid beers from legendary brewery! Thank you Mr. Maytag!!

If you ask me, Anchor makes better, more well rounded beers than many of the more famous California breweries, like Stone and Green Flash. Their porter and barley wine are both excellent; their steam beer is still a standard-bearer for the style; and their mild IPA and bitters are very good.
