Two new canned beers from Anchor

In stock now at Forsyth and Ballwin

Anchor Brewing Blood Orange Blonde
We are excited to present our refreshingly unique craft-brew, Anchor’s Blood Orange Blonde™. The delectable fruit of the blood orange—deep crimson in color, with enticingly rich aroma and tangy-sweet juiciness—provides a distinctive twist to this blonde ale.

Blood Orange Blonde gets some of its citrusy aroma in the brewhouse, where California orange peels are added to the brewkettle. Most of the action, however, is in the cellar, where the blood orange fruit (we use the Sanguinello cultivar) is added during secondary fermentation. Its taste combines the succulent complexity of blood oranges with mild hop bitterness, subtle malty sweetness, and a long, dry finish.

Anchor Brewing Mango Wheat
We are excited to present our refreshingly unique craft-brew, Anchor's Mango Wheat™; an ale made with sun ripened mangoes. Mangoes (Mangifera indica) are native to southern Asia, but Californians have enjoyed fresh mangoes since the 1850s. In 1857, Wide West reported that the mango "is at once the richest and most delicate of all fruits and all other fruits are comparatively insipid beside its intensity of taste. There is something in it which is nothing less than voluptuous."

Anchor's Mango Wheat is crisply refreshing, effervescent, golden ale that highlights the delectable character of this singular fruit: Brightness without sharpness, fullness of flavor without heaviness, tropical aroma without pungency, and complexity without cacophony. This brew pours marigold yellow, slightly hazy with white wheaty head. The aromas are fruity, ripe mangoes with hints of apricot and peach with a taste slightly sweet from mangoes with a hint of citrus tartness. It has a light and easy drinking mouthfeel and finishes crisp and clean with no lingering sweetness.
