    Same yeast, as close as humanly possible to the same malts; same hops. pretty much the same water. New Albion Ale was the first new craft beer in America from a new brewery since before Prohibition.. Anchor Steam, of course, was first and by the time New Albion Ale came out in 1977 Fritz Maytag of Anchor has released Anchor Porter and Liberty Ale and, I believe, Old Foghorn. But there were no others. In our beer world that makes New Albion Ale damned interesting.
