It’s day twenty of my tear to Christmas featuring all 42 labels from Anchor’s Christmas Ale — a.k.a. Our Special Ale — all different beers (well, mostly different) and all different labels, each one designed by local artist Jim Stitt, up to and including this year’s label.
1994 was the twentieth year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the eighth year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like the previous seven year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This twentieth label was “[i]nspired by the Original Christmas Ale Tree” from the first label.
