Fritz Maytag saved Anchor Brewing from closing in 1965, introduced US drinkers to many classic styles, and launched a microbrewery revolution.

Brewing secret

Maytag is known for preserving the indigenous “steam style,” which involves using bottom-fermenting yeast at high temperatures in wide, shallow, open pans.

Liberty Ale

beer style: Pale Ale
alcohol content: 6% ABV

A benchmark American pale ale. Fruity and floral on the nose; crisp bitterness on the palate.

Anchor Steam

beer style: Steam Beer
alcohol content: 4.9% ABV

A signature woody, minty nose. Well-rounded caramel flavors yield to a firm, crisp finish.
