Anchor Steam SOLD!

By Jasmine · April 27th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I just saw on KNTV (local San Francisco news) that Fritz Maytag sold Anchor Steam. Fritz was a major player in reviving the craft beer industry and has been personally leading Anchor for 45 years now. I guess he needs a break.
And before you ask, no, he did not sell it to A-B. According to SFGate, it was sold to “two veterans of the spirits industry” who plan to expand the operation.
Good luck with the changing of the guard, fellas. I look forward to drinking and judging your beer!

    Jasmine was so surprised she called the brewery Anchor Steam…I hope the new owners preserve the amazing brewery and company.
