I happened to be in SF for an unrelated matter (buying a used guitar), and was in the neighborhood, so I thought I'd take a pilgrimage to Anchor Brewing, to say farewell.
While the employees of Anchor are trying to make an offer to Sapporo for the brewery, the union has indicated that Sapporo are being uncooperative, which suggests to me that they are uninterested in that offer for some reason. I'm not going to speculate or suggest nefariousness, even though I have thoughts and suspicions aplenty.
Regardless, it would not surprise me if this truly is an end to this iconic brewery, of which I have very fond memories. This is a real loss to our industry.
