It’s day fifteen of my trip down memory lane 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.
1989 was the fifteenth year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the third year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like the previous two year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This fifteenth label was a “Sycamore Maple” or “Acer pseudoplatanus.”
