Anchor Brewing is synonymous with San Francisco culture, and we love blending our passion for beer with our passion for community. For our Spring-Summer collaboration brew, we found an amazing partner with Anchor Brewing San Franpsycho IPA—a vibrant and local company that’s equally enthusiastic about supporting and celebrating the community. San Franpsycho® IPA is a delicious, balanced and easy-drinking beer that finishes with floral hops and big, juicy notes of peaches and apricots making it the perfect sessionable summertime IPA. This beer is truly an original, just like the city itself, and now we’re proud to share this brew with our friends and fans all over the world. So together, let’s all crack open a beer and savor the city.
A Juicy Collaboration with San Franpsycho® Celebrating the City & Culture of San Francisco.
Brewed with 2-row pale, red wheat and acidulated malt, San Franpsycho® IPA pours a hazy golden straw color with a white fluffy head. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth yet mildly effervescent with a hint of back-end tartness. San Franpsycho® IPA is fermented with a mixed culture of yeast to create a unique and fruity estery nose, unlike any other IPA from Anchor. Anchor brewers add peach and apricot fruit puree during the secondary fermentation, giving the beer a pleasant hint of sweetness and abundantly fruity aromas of peach, apricot, and pineapple with a bit of funky dank.
The name San Franpsycho® IPA speaks to San Francisco, but specifically to Ocean Beach and the Outer Sunset neighborhood. The label design is a classic view from the Noriega hilltop looking down to the Outer Sunset and Ocean Beach, where San Franpsycho® was born.

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.
