Ever since Fritz Maytag bought and transformed San Francisco’s struggling Anchor Steam brewery, Northern California has been one of the centers of the craft beer and microbrew movements. KQED’s Forum talks about the latest trends, from sour beer to the rise of retail tasting rooms, and explores how today’s local brewers are redefining the beloved beverage.
