Triangle Brewing Company, Takes 2 and 3

Please see the update to my post on the Triangle Brewing Company.

I see that they are pouring a Dubbel at the World Beer Festival in Durham this weekend...sadly, I will be out of town at a wedding (my friends really need to stop getting married during beer festivals), but I look forward to finding it on tap in the neighborhood soon.

Beer Hunter, RIP

It completely escaped my attention until just moments ago that Michael Jackson, aka "The Beer Hunter" and arguably the most important and influential beer writer ever, died on Thursday.

NYT obit here.

Much has been said and will be said about his legacy, so suffice to say that if you enjoy good beer, you need to raise a glass in his memory at the first opportunity. Among other things, no one would be writing (or reading) anything called a "beer blog" without Mr. Jackson's body of work to inspire and inform.
