Anchor California Lager

Anchor-California-LagerFrom the Brewer – “Anchor Steam’s® roots go back to the Gold Rush, long before ice houses and modern refrigeration made traditional lagers a viable California option. In 1876, thanks to an ice pond in the mountains and a belief that anything is possible in the Golden State, a little brewery named Boca created California’s first genuine lager. Anchor California Lager® is our re-creation of this historic American beer.

Made in San Francisco with two-row California barley, Cluster hops (the premier hop in 19th-century California), and our own lager yeast, this all-malt brew is kräusened and lagered in our cellars. Its golden color, distinctive aroma, creamy head, balanced depth of flavor, and smooth finish make Anchor California Lager® a delicious celebration of California’s unique craft brewing heritage.

The California grizzly bear on our Anchor California Lager® label is from a woodcut by Durbin Van Vleck (1833–1898), courtesy of The Bancroft Library, UC Berkeley. First published in 1856 in San Francisco, it is a superbly crafted rendering of an original illustration by Charles Christian Nahl (1818–1878), who had painted both eastbound and westbound versions of this bear. Nearly a century later, Nahl’s bear served as inspiration for the design of the bear on California’s modern state flag. Although that bear is heading west, our bear—like the bear on Boca Brewing’s historic lager label—is heading east.”

Kona Brewing Longboard Island Larger

Kona-Brewing-Longboard-Island-LargerExceptionally Smooth

From the Brewer – “Longboard Island Lager is a smooth refreshing lager fermented and aged for weeks at cold temperatures to yield its exceptionally smooth flavor. A delicate, slightly spicy hop aroma complements the malty body of this beer.

Longboard Island Lager typically pairs well with lighter fare but has enough flavor and body to stand up to some heartier foods too. Try some with herb chicken on mixed greens, garlic twists, Greek pizza.

We bring beer fans into our brewery nearly every week to create their own beer with us—the more daring the better—and each spring we’ll highlight one of the small-batch standouts. Last year, Beer Camp worked overtime. Along with our fan brews, we made 12 additional beers with 12 exceptional breweries. Choosing one for an encore wasn’t easy. Ever drawn to hops, we decided to reimagine our hoppy lager collaboration with Ballast Point.”

Kloster Andechs Andechser Weissbier Hell

Kloster-Andechs-Andechser-Weissbier-HellWhen summer is on the way and the days invite you to swim, ramble, climb, or simply enjoy the outdoors, you will discover that an Andechser Weissbier Hell is just the right thing to quench your thirst.

From the Brewer – “Since Saint Joseph’s Day on 19 March 1993, Andechs Weissbier Hell has found many new friends. Untreated and bottled in its natural state of yeasty turbidity, this is a top fermented beer for the epicure.

Its light honey colour makes it an immediate eyecatcher. Then there’s the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. At the same time, the creamy, fine pored head invites you to get to know this light Weissbier from the Holy Mountain. You’ll need two takes to enjoy the aromas to the full.

First, distinctive fruity aromas like banana and honeydew melon come to the fore, followed by fine cloves. Andechser Weissbier Hell is a very tangy, refreshing treat with the conviction of a full, soft body. It concludes on a finely balanced interplay of light sweet honey and a delicate acidity with undertones of bitter hoppiness that quickly subside into a harmonious aftertaste.”

From the Brewer – “Our Summerfest® is a refreshing, pilsner-style lager. Its incredible smoothness comes from an extra-long lagering period. Lighter in body than our ales but just as complex in character, Summerfest® quenches your thirst with big aroma and a tangy hop bite.”

Saratoga Larger


In the year 2001, the Olde Saratoga Brewing Co. began brewing Kingfisher Premium Lager for the USA, joining three other countries worldwide who brew Kingfisher. Kingfisher Premium Lager is enjoyed in over 55 countries and is the world’s #1 selling Indian beer. Olde Saratoga Brewing is the sole brewery for Kingfisher in the Northeast United States.

Top on the list, however, is Master Brewer McErlean’s, fresh and delicious Saratoga Lager and Saratoga IPA brewed for the local region. The Saratoga Lager is a German/Austrian style Marzenbier, a reddish, coppery color with a full malt character, slightly sweet to the palate, and a lightly hopped finish. The Saratoga India Pale Ale (IPA) has a full citrus flavor using Cascade and Fuggles hops, along with a generous amount of Munich malt for that balanced flavor that makes Saratoga IPA so refreshingly delicious.

From the Brewer – “Brewed in the grand tradition of the Vienna Lagers of Austria and Marzenbiers of Munich, Saratoga Lager is a smooth, medium bodied lager with a pale copper color and a rich aroma. German hops and Munich malt impart an intriguing balance between light, soft bitterness and a refreshing sweetness.

Well, we’ve upgraded from our original direct-fire brick kettle, but our flagship Toasted Lager still has the same toasted flavor it was named for.
