R.I.P. Anchor Brewing

The historic Anchor Brewing Company, based in San Francisco, is ceasing operations and liquidating the business.

Amazingly, this brewing company has been around since 1896 – and was selling beer to miners during the gold rush.

It seems the company fell on hard times starting in 2016 and couldn’t battle back through the pandemic and inflation, especially with all the craft breweries popping up in the past decade or so.
