It’s day eighteen of my hotfoot 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.
1992 was the eighteenth year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the sixth year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like the previous five year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This eighteenth label was a “Ponderosa Pine,” or “Pinus ponderosa.”
