Anchor Steam Blackberry Daze IPA
A Funky Fusion of Rich Earth and Ripe Fruit
Blackberry Daze IPA is a synergistic union of blackberries and hops. Because the blackberry was once wildly rampant in California, it is our ideal choice for this singular Anchor brew.
Blackberry Daze IPA gets its hop bitterness and some hop aroma in the brewhouse, but most of the action happens in the cellar when the fruit is added during secondary fermentation. A special blend of loamy, herbaceous hops for dry-hopping complements the brightness and deep complexity of the blackberries. The result is a funky synthesis of rich earth and ripe fruit, hop bitterness and blackberry tartness, with alluring color and aromas up front, sublimely intense flavors, and a refreshingly dry finish.
The appearance of Blackberry Daze IPA is unique and unexpected as it features a ruby, blush pink color not found in your typical IPA. The packaging artwork displays a psychedelic label design that visually reiterates the beer’s alluring combination of hops and blackberries.

Anchor Brewing Company
A TIME-HONORED BREWING TRADITION
Anchor Brewing is America’s first and oldest craft brewery, with roots dating back to the California gold rush. Today, our beers are handmade from an all-malt mash in our traditional copper brewhouse. Our process combines the time-honored art of classical craft brewing with carefully applied, state-of-the-art modern methods.
THE HEART AND SOUL OF ANCHOR
Every drop of Anchor beer is made right here in our traditional copper brewhouse. Decades-old handmade tools of the trade — mash tun, lauter tun, grant, and brewkettle — are literally at the heart of our historic American brewery, surrounded by our offices, quality-control lab, and taproom. It is a constant reminder of the brewcraft at the core of who we are.
