Beer Description

A deliciously smooth winter warmer with notes of seasonal spices and a malty backbone.

Our 2016 Christmas Ale marks the 42nd annual release of this celebrated Anchor tradition. It is sold only from early November to mid–January. The Ale’s recipe is different every year—as is the tree on the label—but the intent with which we offer it remains the same: joy and celebration of the newness of life. Since ancient times, trees have symbolized the winter solstice when the earth, with its seasons, appears born anew. With a heavily guarded, secret recipe, Christmas Ale is a highly anticipated seasonal delight, complex and full in flavor with a velvety texture and alluring, yet subtle, spiced aroma.
