Mark Carpenter first visited the Anchor brewery in 1971. He took a tour and eventually asked for a job. At the time, there were only five employees brewing one beer – Anchor Steam® Beer. Mark celebrated 40 years at Anchor Brewing in 2011, and we’re glad he was “in the right place at the right time” 40 years ago. We, along with his colleagues throughout the craft beer industry, thank Mark for 40 years of insight, innovation, and friendship.
