Fritz Maytag, the godfather of craft

Before I’d ever interviewed a single brewer in person, I managed to schedule nearly a full day’s interview with the iconic Fritz Maytag. The man isn’t just responsible for the survival and success of Anchor Brewing, but, it can be argued (by me and many others), that he spurred the entire craft beer industry. Not a bad legacy. And a decade after my first interview with him, he kindly got on the horn to give me another for Draft Magazine to reflect on that legacy.
