    Anchor Brewing Company (San Francisco, CA) is expanding their seasonal game this fall/winter with the addition of Anchor Winter Wheat. The cold weather offering is brewed with red winter wheat from a nearby family farm. Cali grown wheat isn’t just local, it’s award winning.

    We’ve been making wheat beers since the summer of 1984. They’ve all been golden summer refreshers instead of dark winter warmers – until now. Anchor Winter Wheat is made with a unique blend of malted barley and five wheats from Belgium, Germany, the Midwest, and a family farm just 75 miles away, where we get our soft red winter wheat. Sown in November and harvested in June, it is used in artisanal flatbreads, cakes and pastries. In 1848, California farmers forsook their amber grain for golden fortune. By 1878, California wheat was back big-time, winning gold at the Paris International Exposition. There was a ben a wheat beer brewery in North Beach, one mile from our first home. Today, the robust flavor, malty complexity, enticing aroma, ebony color, and thick creamy head of Anchor Winter Wheat reflect this delicious heritage. Cheers!

    An official announcement from Anchor will come soon, but expect Anchor Winter Wheat in 12oz bottles, and draft.

    Style: Wheat Ale
    Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
    Arrival: TBA

    7% ABV
