COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First of series. Fritz Maytag, owner of San Francisco’s 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!

Bottle from The NC brewery - love the slow settling, like a Guinness, as it is first poured. This one has lovey sweet tobacco notes, like an old ale stout. Very nice!!

DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle from Sierra Nevada Mills River. Pours black with a massive khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Massive chocolatly malt notes on the nose along with a bit of sweetness. Huge chocolate on the tongue Along with a fair amount of bitterness on the finish. Hides it's booze well. It's aged nicely. Definitely worth the money. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
