2020 Anchor Steam Christmas Ale
My brother-in-laws have a thing going on with the annual Anchor Steam Christmas Ale that comes out every year. And I've posted a little bit about the bottles each year. This year, the beer was billed as: "New tree. New recipe. Same holiday tradition." Nat's brother Charlie tells me that they have a new head brewer - hence the changes. He also said that this year is heavier (is that the right term?) alcohol.
But, I'm mostly interested in the label. Here's a look - below - at one of the bottles that Nat's Dad bought and stored for her brothers when they can make it. They have a beer from every year back a number of years in this fridge.
Three trees. That's kinda interesting. Turns out, that's new. From the 2020 page:
This year’s label features The Three Graces; three iconic towering sequoias from the Mariposa Grove in California’s Yosemite National Park. This is only the second time in its 46-year history that multiple trees are shown together on the label, a fitting statement to symbolize togetherness and hope in a year when so much time has been spent apart. The Three Graces represent radiance, joy, and flowering – characteristics that we can all hold near during this unprecedented time.
This marks the seventh year that I've included this holiday tradition on the blog.Here's the post with the bottle from 2019.
