Anchor Steam Beer 355ml owes its name to the beer history of the United States. During the nineteenth century the word "steam" was used as a nickname for beer brewed in the American West-Coast in very rudimentary conditions and without ice, which apparently forced the brewers to ferment their beer on the roofs of the houses, in the hope that the cooler night air would cool the fermenting beer.

Because of the contrast of temperature, from the pans rose steam, and hence the beers elaborated there were called "steam", a name registered by Anchor Brewing Company and which can only be applied to the original, true and unmistakable Anchor Steam Beer 355ml .

This has undoubtedly been a true classic of the American brewing tradition since 1896. It is a unique beer that is made from lager yeast fermentation at warmer temperatures in shallow outdoor fermenters with gentle carbonation through a process called kräusening, which consists of reserving (or recovering from a new batch in preparation) part of the unfermented or half fermented must to add to a fully fermented beer before bottling, to add gas in a more natural way.
