It’s day twenty-one of my triumphant trot 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. Also, this marks halfway in our journey.
1995 was the twenty-first year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the ninth year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like the previous eight year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This twenty-first label was a “Coconut Palm” or “Cocos nucifera.”
