It’s day fourteen of my fall flight 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.
1988 was the fourteenth year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the second year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like last year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This fourteenth label was a “White Spruce” or “Picea glauca.”
