Anaheim Winter Wheat in Bottles

Some time around 1910, John Cassou, the owner of the Peerless Saloon glued a holiday label on a bottle of Anaheim Beer.

Anaheim Beer was still being brewed but the third owners of the brewery  had re-named it “Union Brewing Company.”




Today we release our Anaheim Winter Wheat.   Thanks to our talented design and graphics specialists, Darin Scruggs of Darin Scruggs Design, and Michelle Rivera of MRA Complete Graphics, we are using an updated version of that same label.

In an interesting Six-Degrees-of-Anaheim-Brewery, John Cassou’s daughter, Rose Cassou, married Leonard Hessel, one of the brothers who ran Union Brewing Company.


Come see the original label and bottles with the Union Brewing Company logo at the Tasting Room.
