Anchor Brewing Co. Our Special Ale/Christmas Ale 2012

San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing Co. just posted a great new video spotlighting local San Francisco artist Jim Stitt, who has hand drawn the graphics on almost all of Anchor’s beer-bottle labels since the 1970s, including the trees on its annual Our Special Ale/Christmas Ale, which are different every year.

I’m a loyal Anchor drinker, and I’ve been bringing a magnum bottle of Anchor Christmas Ale to my annual family Christmas celebrations for years. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is picking up a new bottle of Anchor Christmas and checking out the new tree. I never knew Mr. Stitt’s name, but I’ve been appreciating his art for a long time.
