Tales From the Cask Craft Beer Podcast

Welcome back, Caskers! In episode 16 of Tales From the Cask we have an in-depth, exclusive interview with John Gittins, Sr. VP Sales for Ancher Brewing! John tells us his story about how he came to work for Anchor Brewing and what he did before his Anchor Brewing days.  He shares some of the things that make Anchor Brewing unique and how they've developed their beers over many years.  We discuss Steam Beer, California Lager, Anchor Christmas and so much more!  On tap this week is the Anchor Autumn Maple.

John even takes time to answer a few listener questions about Liberty Ale, making an imperial stout, the difference between a double IPA and an imperial IPA, the role of Fritz Maytag at Anchor, Anchor Bock, and the possibility of opening up an east coast brewery.

We also answer some listener questions about the history and importance of the 3-tier system, pumpkin beers, and Leinies bottles and cans uncovered during an archaeological dig!

In our news segment we share a Brewers Association article about the growth of craft brewers, a fascinating story about a beer can house, and a New Yorker story about the history of sour beer
