Anchor was sold to the Griffin Group in 2010 who then flipped it to Sapporo Breweries Ltd. in 2017 for $85 million.

On July 12, 2023 it was announced that Anchor will cease operations.


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)
