Beer: Anchor Brewing adds “Humming” 1st New Seasonal in 5 Yrs.

Hot on the heels of news that Anchor has been sold to a Novato company, they’ve announced their first new seasonal in 5 years: Humming Ale.

Here’s the question: Why did Anchor make this announcement?
A) The oh-so-rare Nelson Sauvin hops in Humming Ale are oh-so-good.
B) They’re trying to squelch the usual big-company-buys-microbrewery-and-microbrewery-stops-putting-out-interesting-small-batch-beer expectations.

I’m guessing a little from column A, a little from column B. Either way, I’m excited. I was lucky enough to try Humming at TAPS Petaluma last November. It’s a wonderfully light, sessionable beer. But not “new” by any means. Just “new to bottles”.
