Back in 1975, Anchor released the first holiday beer in America since Prohibition. Year after year, Anchor creates a new, secret recipe with a unique hand drawn label for their Christmas Ale, but the intent with each brew remains the same: joy for the changing seasons and celebration of the newness of life. With a heavily guarded, confidential recipe, Christmas Ale is sold only from early November to mid-January.
For 2021 the Anchor brew team, led by brewmaster Tom Riley, crafted a Christmas Ale that amplifies notes of rich, bittersweet chocolate with hints of raspberry and light mulling spices such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and cardamom. The dark, silky-smooth brew maintains last year’s 7% ABV. The 2021 label showcases a hand-crafted image of the iconic Western Joshua Tree, epitomizing the natural beauty of California’s high desert. A portion of sales from the 47th edition will benefit One Tree Planted, a non-profit dedicated to global reforestation planting millions of trees across 43 countries.
