It’s day sixteen of my spring 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.
1990 was the sixteenth year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the fourth year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like the previous three year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This sixteenth label was inspired by the work of French artist Paul Cézanne.
