On September 30, 1971, Mark Carpenter joined Anchor Brewing Company as one of five employees. In the decades that followed, Mark played a key role in developing the many innovative beers that were produced at Anchor.
And upon becoming brewmaster in 2010, Mark has continued that innovation — starting with the release of Brekle’sTM Brown in 2011, and with the 2012 introduction of the Zymaster® Series, a unique series of beers rooted in its exceptional respect for the ancient art and noble traditions of brewing. The inaugural beer in the series, Zymaster Series No. 1: California Lager, was released in February 2012.
This past July, Zymaster Series No. 2: Mark’s Mild was released in draught only. To commemorate Mark’s 41st anniversary, we’re releasing a limited edition magnum (1.5 Liters) of Mark’s Mild. Beginning Monday, October 1st, Mark’s Mild magnums will be sold only through the Taproom at our brewery while supplies last. Mark’s Mild is inspired by the British Mild style, lower in alcohol, but high in flavor. This brew has a malty sweetness with hints of chocolate, nuts, caramel and toffee, and a smooth, thirst-quenching finish, proving the notion that beer doesn’t have to be extreme to be interesting.
Anchor Brewing Company is proud to have Mark Carpenter as our brewmaster and friend. We invite you to raise your Anchor and help us celebrate.
