Today is Mark Carpenter’s 70th birthday. Mark has been the head brewer at Anchor since 1971 and is responsible for much of their success over the years. Recently, he celebrated his 40th anniversary at Anchor, and he’s also started stepping back from his day-to-day duties, not exactly retiring, but sort of, although still involved in the big brewing decisions. He’s a terrific person and one of the nicest people I know. Join me in wishing Mark a very happy birthday.
