In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, the Golden Gate American Flyer Club has joined forces with Anchor Brewing Company and Lionel to create two limited-edition American Flyer refrigerator cars. One has a blue roof and the other a gold roof. They feature rare, original Anchor Brewing graphics, from a florid 1909 script Anchor to the 1968 oval label designed by Fritz Maytag and Bill Hyde.

San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing Company is one of America’s oldest breweries, with an extraordinary heritage dating to the California Gold Rush. Its first brewmaster, Gottlieb Brekle, arrived in San Francisco in the 1850s. He founded Golden City Brewery in 1871, which, in 1896, became Anchor Brewery. In 1965, Fritz Maytag rescued the struggling brewery from bankruptcy, at a time when mass-produced, mass-marketed beer completely dominated the American brewing landscape. Together, Maytag and Anchor ignited a revolution that paved the way for today’s craft-beer movement. Anchor Brewing is America’s first craft brewery and Anchor Steam® Beer—its flagship brand since 1896—a world classic.

Our Flyerfest 2021 car Anchor Beer refrigerator car sets are available by advance order.  Only a limited number of these sets will be available and are destined to become collector's items. They are available only as a set of 2 cars for $160 per set, plus $15 shipping by Priority mail.  Use the Car Order form link at the bottom of this page.  Local Pickup in the San Francisco Bay Area without shipping charges can be arranged.  We are hoping they will be available on the day of the Fest, but that cannot be guaranteed.  No form required or include with your Flyer Fest Registration.    Send your check or money order to:
