Anchor Brewing Co. Is Closing After 127 Years

From an AP story by Michelle Chapman and Janie Har headlined “Historic Anchor Brewing Co. is closing after 127 years, with beer sales in decline”:

San Francisco’s 127-year-old Anchor Brewing Co. will shut down and liquidate after years of declining sales.

Anchor was a trailblazer in the U.S., brewing craft beers in the 1970s when most Americans were loyal to a handful of major brands. Its unique brewing techniques ignited demand beyond the city borders of San Francisco, and it quickly became a sought-after prize by beer geeks everywhere.
