Hitting shelves on August 2, 2010, Anchor Brewing Company‘s Humming Ale celebrates the legacy of San Francisco brewing. “HUMMING is an ancient term, used centuries ago to describe both ales and beers. Although its origins are shrouded in mystery, it suits this bold hoppy ale, which we have created to celebrate the anniversary of our first brew at 1705 Mariposa Street. From that very day we were humming!”
The current owners revived an almost fallen brewery in 1965, starting small before moving into an old coffee roasting plant on Mariposa Street in 1979. It is the sixth home for Anchor since its founding in 1896. Humming Ale, in essence, serves as a late Summer/Autumn brew. In this, the first bottling, it will be available through November.
