Liberty Ale by Anchor Brewing

We Canadians can be such snobs.

Hey look, a good American beer!  Check this out.  Made by Anchor Brewing in San Francisco, Liberty Ale is a good, clean strong beer with a distinctive bouquet and a slight bitterness.  It’s 5.9%, a little cloudy and naturally carbonated by a process called ‘bunging’.  Never heard of that before, have to check it out.  If anyone knows ‘bunging’, fill me in.

The Anchor Brewing site is pretty slick, and as a designer I’m kinda inspired by their use of typography.  If I ever get out to San Francisco I’m checking out the brewery.  They’ve got a few types in the beer stores here, and after this one I’m game to try anything Anchor puts out.  Hopefully more show up, Anchor seems to have quite a selection.  If anyone knows where I can get a pint or two on tap, again, let me know.

Easy rating for this little morsel.  8 out of 10, with a chance that on tap on a summer patio its a straight up 9.

Slightly cloudy, and naturally carbonated.
