Anchor Summer Wheat

Anchor Summer Wheat has delicate citrus aromas and a light touch of herbal hops

This brew from San Francisco is the original 'American-style' wheat beer — a benchmark of craft brewing history that tastes as fresh and delicious today as it did when it was launched in the summer of 1984.

While most wheat beers rely on European-inspired recipes, Anchor was the first to try their hand at their own all-malt interpretation using half wheat and half barley. Unlike Belgian-style Witbier or German-style Hefeweizen, this light-bodied ale is filtered and is neither spiced nor fermented with aromatic yeasts. This results in a subtle-tasting wheat beer that looks like lemon meringue pie in a glass — opalescent rather than cloudy under its pillowy white head. Delicate citrus aromas and a light touch of herbal hops steer Anchor's Summer Beer firmly toward refreshment that feels as bracing as a cool breeze off the bay.
