Bob Brewer answers your questions about the world of craft beer and brewing.
Bob: Thanks for the compliment! I always feel much cooler when I put on the lab coat. Smarter too. It’s just a standard lab coat, but it’s the guy who’s wearing it and the Anchor patch that makes it truly cool. We get the lab coats from a uniform service and have them sew our patches on. You can get an Anchor patch from us at our online Steam Gear store, and you too can be cool.
Mike : Why don’t you ship Anchor brews to Australia?
Bob: Anchor is now available in Australia! Please contact our distributor Robert Oatley Vineyards for more information on where to find our craft beers.
Brenner: Any chance that Anchor could host homebrewing classes?
Bob: While Anchor fully supports the homebrewing community, we’re not really set up for conducting homebrewing classes on-site. Commercial brewing on our scale is so much different from homebrewing, that it would be difficult to model specific techniques or draw useful comparisons. I recommend that you join a homebrewing club and seek the advice of their members. These clubs are very good, as well as supportive and experienced in the craft. Check online with the AHA (American Homebrewers Association) for a club in your area. They are always looking for new members.
