"Anchor Brewing is synonymous with San Francisco culture, and we love blending our passion for beer with our passion for community. For our Spring/Summer collaboration brew, we found an amazing partner with San Franpsycho®—a vibrant and local company that’s equally enthusiastic about supporting and celebrating the community. San Franpsycho® IPA is a delicious, balanced and easy-drinking beer that finishes with floral hops and big, juicy notes of peaches and apricots making it the perfect sessionable summertime IPA. This beer is truly an original, just like the city itself, and now we’re proud to share this brew with our friends and fans all over the world. So together, let’s all crack open a beer and savor the city.
Brewed with 2-row pale, red wheat and acidulated malt, San Franpsycho® IPA pours a hazy golden straw color with a white fluffy head. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth yet mildly effervescent with a hint of back-end tartness. San Franpsycho® IPA is fermented with a mixed culture of yeast to create a unique and fruity estery nose, unlike any other IPA from Anchor. Anchor brewers add peach and apricot fruit puree during the secondary fermentation, giving the beer a pleasant hint of sweetness and abundantly fruity aromas of peach, apricot, and pineapple with a bit of funky dank.
The name San Franpsycho® IPA speaks to San Francisco, but specifically to Ocean Beach and the Outer Sunset neighborhood. The label design is a classic view from the Noriega hilltop looking down to the Outer Sunset and Ocean Beach, where San Franpsycho® was born."
