Welcome to Steam Week 2020!

August 17 - August 23

Our 6th Annual Steam Week kicks off with a virtual twist and a socially distanced toast on Monday, August 17th and we promise it will be an occasion to remember! Since the first year this honor was bestowed upon us by the city of San Francisco, we’ve celebrated with showstopping entertainment and deliciously refreshing beer and this year will be no different!

For those who are new to Steam Week… Back in 2015, the legendary city of San Francisco proclaimed the third week of August to be Anchor Steam Week to recognize and celebrate Anchor’s pioneering role in the American craft beer movement and continued commitment to brew in San Francisco. It is an incredible honor that we cherish for us and our incredible city. See the actual Proclamation from the city of San Francisco!

Join us all week on Instagram as we cheers to the birth of craft beer and celebrate our communities’ ever-loving dedication to the amazing city of San Francisco!
