It’s day nineteen of my run 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.
1993 was the nineteenth year that Anchor made their Christmas Ale, and this year marked the seventh year that Anchor’s Our Special Ale included spices. Like the previous six year’s, a spiced brown ale was created for the year’s Christmas Ale. This nineteenth label was a “Paradise Apple,” or “Malus pumila.”
