"The new owners of Anchor Brewing plan to capitalize on the firm's reputation to expand their footprint in distinctive beers and spirits. <snipped for brevity> They also have a minority interest in BrewDog PLC, a large independent brewery in Scotland, and hope to make that brew locally."
Having just watched Beer Wars I was afraid Anchor was being sold to one of the big three.
I've never had Anchor Steam (I will rectify that soon) but I have had Maytag Blue Cheese, which I think is from the same family. Do yourself a favor and go to Iowa or google and order some online, it goes great with home brew.
