COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First of series. Fritz Maytag, owner of San Franciscoís Anchor Brewing Company, is regarded as the founding father of the craft brewing movement. Frtiz agreed to guest brew this very special ale with us in honor of our 30th anniversary. As a nod to the dark ales and stouts that seduced both Fritz and Ken in the early years, we bring you this pioneering stout, a rich and roasted ale, perfect for aging, and worthy of your finest snifter. Enjoy!

After buying the remaining one at my local beer store, I find myself craving more of this. If only I was drinking Sierra Nevada a few years ago, I could be enjoying this one still.

mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cellared for two years, shared with a friend. It has a nice brown creamy head, full flavored, with notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of licorice. Thereís some malty sweetness, well balanced by the piney bitterness. Every sip is to be savored. This is a special beer - wish I had more.
