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.
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.
