Anchor Old Foghorn ( San Francisco, CA )

An early entry in the barleywine category by an American brewery, Anchor Old Foghorn maintains the strong malt character of the traditional English version without the aggressive hoppiness more common to later American efforts. Deep ruby in color, this is a smooth, malty sweet and mellow brew meant for sipping with friends.

Anchor Brewing Company
The Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco was begun the 1860s and, in one of the semnal stories in modern American draft brewing, was saved from bankruptcy in 1965 by current owner and CEO Fritz Maytag, an heir to the Maytag appliance fortune. Today, Anchor sells about 110,000 barrels a year of its seven brews, led by its flagship beer, Anchor Steam.
