The Anchor Brewery was a brewery in Southwark, London, England. Established in 1616, by the early nineteenth century it was the largest brewery in the world. From 1781 it was operated by Barclay Perkins & Co, who merged with Courage in 1955 to form Courage Barclay & Co. The main brewery closed in 1958, but the Lager plant continued brewing into the 1970's before the brewery was demolished in 1981.
