First introduced in 1975, Liberty Ale is brewed with a top-fermenting ale yeast, responsible for many of the subtle flavours and characteristics. Dry-hopping imparts a unique aroma to the ale. Liberty Ale is brewed strictly according to traditional brewing methods, and, like all Anchor Brewing Company products, uses only natural ingredients - water, malted barley, fresh whole hops and yeast. A special top-fermenting ale yeast is used during fermentation and is responsible for many of Liberty Ale's subtle flavours and characteristics. Carbonation is produced by an entirely natural process called 'bunging,' which produces champagne-like bubbles. Dry-hopping (adding fresh hops to the brew during aging), imparts a unique aroma to the ale. It is a process rarely used in the USA today.

'The classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, Anchor Steam has a bronze colour with a thick creamy head. The palate is full and malty with a beautiful bitter hop aroma - a unique beer universally recognised as a world classic that traces back to the Gold Rush era. San Francisco's famous Anchor Steam, the classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. The deep amber colour, thick creamy head, and rich flavour all testify to Anchor's traditional brewing methods. Anchor Steam is unique, for their brewing process has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. A San Francisco original since 1896 Anchor Steam derives its unusual name from the 19th century when 'steam' seems to have been a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The brewing methods of those days are a mystery and, although there are many theories, no one can say with certainty why the word 'steam' came to be associated with beer. For many decades Anchor alone has used this quaint name for its unique beer. In modern times, 'Steam' has become a trademark of Anchor Brewing.
Premium Raspberry is a beer made from traditional Gueuze Lambic, to which 25 per cent of fresh raspberry juice and natural sugar is added. A clear, dark red beer is obtained with a pink head. With an alcohol content of only 2.8 per cent and its fruity character, this is a beer which is a tempting tipple, when drunk young or old. The elegantly-shaped glass reinforces the image and symbolizes the natural charm of this fullbodied Raspberry (a raspberry beer).
Kriek Lambic St-Louis. For at least six months, the pulp of morello cherries (kriek) matures in the gueuze-lambic. The stones produce a subtle taste of almond. Under the experienced eye of the cellar master, the young kriek is blended with the old lambic to develop its full flavour.
A golden coloured organic ale, with a rich full-bodied texture accompanied by a unique blend of traditional and fruity hops. Drinkers of this delicious ale will experience a mouth-watering taste of citrus fruits with a slightly spicy aroma. This beer is named after the Golden Age of the Celtic people. The Celts dominated Mid-Europe before the Roman Empire stretched westwards and northward. In the Golden Age of Celtdom, the Celts waged successful wars in continental Europe, notably in around 500 BC where modern day Spain and Northern Italy were overthrown. The name Bracis-Curmi (malted beer) traces back to the ancient Celtic language or proto-celtic, an age where Celts were some of the first beer producers in Europe.
