Anchor Brewing Brewers’ Pale Ale is a bright and fruity American Pale Ale bursting with hop aroma and flavor. Its appearance is straw colored with a creamy, white head and nice lacing. The ale has aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus peels and dank piney hops. It’s a crisp and quaffable Pale Ale packed with complex hop flavor, finishing fairly dry with a nice balanced drink-ability.
Anchor’s Brewmaster, Scott Ungermann, asked our brewers “what beer would you like to drink right now?” and they told him “a killer, everyday pale ale that’s aromatic, crisp, refreshing and flavorful”. And then, they set off to make it.
Our brewers work together to develop and constantly evolve recipes until they’re absolutely delicious and uniquely Anchor. For this beer, their first step was to find just the right malt bill to showcase their favorite hops and then blend those hops within that framework. While it took many iterations and taste tests, our brewers were up for the challenge! The result? A modern American Pale Ale with the fresh aromatics of an ever-changing blend of our brewers’ favorite hops for a bright, crisp, delicious and perfect go-to beer.
Anchor Brewing Brewers’ Pale Ale, isn’t just another beer—it’s a beer that’s brewed by brewers, for brewers. And now, we’re proud to share it with our beer community. Cheers!

Anchor Brewing Company Brewers’ Pale Ale
A TIME-HONORED BREWING TRADITION
Anchor is America’s first and oldest craft brewery, with roots dating back to the California gold rush. Today, our beers are handmade from an all-malt mash in our traditional copper brewhouse. Our process combines the time-honored art of classical craft brewing with carefully applied, state-of-the-art modern methods.
THE HEART AND SOUL OF ANCHOR
Every drop of Anchor beer is made right here in our traditional copper brewhouse. Decades-old handmade tools of the trade — mash tun, lauter tun, grant, and brewkettle — are literally at the heart of our historic American brewery, surrounded by our offices, quality-control lab, and taproom. It is a constant reminder of the brewcraft at the core of who we are.
MODERN TECHNIQUES FOR AN ANCIENT CRAFT
In the 1960s, Anchor was perhaps the most primitive small craft brewery in the world. By 1971 the year we began bottling Anchor Steam beer we had perhaps the most modern small brewery in the world, with state-of-the-art quality control systems in place to ensure that our beers are always pure and fresh, from brewing, through finishing, packaging and transporting. We know of no brewery in the world that matches our efforts to combine traditional, natural brewing with such carefully applied, modern methods.
