Anchor’s Blood Orange Blonde
A Blonde Ale made with Juicy & Tart Blood Oranges
We are excited to present our refreshingly unique craft-brew, Anchor’s Blood Orange Blonde. The delectable fruit of the blood orange—deep crimson in color, with enticingly rich aroma and tangy-sweet juiciness—provides a distinctive twist to this blonde ale.
Blood Orange Blonde gets some of its citrusy aroma in the brewhouse, where California orange peels are added to the brewkettle. Most of the action, however, is in the cellar, where the blood orange fruit (we use the Sanguinello cultivar) is added during secondary fermentation. Its taste combines the succulent complexity of blood oranges with mild hop bitterness, subtle malty sweetness, and a long, dry finish.

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.
