Anchor Brewing has played a significant role in San Francisco's history and their unique beers are all produced in one of the most traditional and handsome breweries in the USA - each brew made from an all-malt mash in their handcrafted copper brew house.
Made in San Francisco since 1974, the Anchor Porter is the quintessential American porter. This handmade porter is expertly crafted using the finest malted barley, fresh whole hops, and a first-rate respect for the brewing tradition.
Wonderfully boozy aromas and flavours of chocolate, dried berries, and coffee are contrasted nicely by a dry, smoky finish and a pleasant bitterness. There is so much taste that comes out of the beer yet it still finds itself very smooth and balanced.
The brewers say: With deep black color, a thick, creamy head, rich chocolate, toffee and coffee flavors, and full-bodied smoothness, Anchor Porter® is the epitome of a handcrafted dark beer.
A blend of specially roasted pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts, along with our top-fermenting yeast, creates complexity without bitterness. The brew is hopped at a high rate, and naturally carbonated. The result is dark in the glass, but surprisingly light on the palate.
Anchor Porter® became the first modern American porter style beer when it was introduced in 1972. Over 40 years later, our porter continues to reward those who look beyond its intimidating appearance to discover its smooth, full-bodied drinkability. Anchor Porter® is the definitive American Porter.
