One of my favorite beer bloggers, Bill Brand, has passed away. He was a reporter for the Oakland Tribune and wrote a regular beer column entitled “What’s On Tap?” as well as contributing to the Bottom’s Up beer and wine blog.
I had just discovered his excellent reportage this past summer and I’m sad to see him go. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Next time you’re out for a pint, raise a toast for Bill Brand. I think he would find that a fitting tribute.
