Anchor Brewing Company is expressing its Golden State Warriors fandom in the most appropriate way: A limited-edition Anchor California Lager with packaging that salutes the Oakland team’s “Strength in Numbers” motto and artwork in the requisite golden-state hues.

The lager is a quintessentially California brew, a historic style that dates back to the 19th century, when the Boca brewing company began brewing lagers in a tiny post-Gold Rush town near Truckee. Lagers require chilly temperatures — 35 to 45 degrees — for fermentation, so in the pre-refrigeration era, most California breweries made ales and porters instead. But Boca’s brewers used their town’s snowy Sierra location, complete with ice ponds and plentiful fresh water, to their advantage.
