Pittsburgh's champion of craft beer passed away suddenly last week. Because of his 20+ years of hard work and dedication to educate and promote craft beer in the area you are drinking better beer. In his memory here is a re-release of when Tony asked me to co-host Beer School with him in 2009.

“If they aren’t serving good beer in heaven, they will be soon.” - Scott Smith of East End Brewing Co.

Please take a moment and read his incredible obituary in which only Bob Batz Jr. could sum up our feelings and his legacy. - http://bit.ly/TheBeermanObit

Beer: Stone Brewing Company Stone Farking Wheaton W00tstout

"This righteously flavorful imperial stout has been a favorite among our fans—and us—since its inception in 2013. In celebration of its third brewing, we’ve upped the barrel-aging quotient for 2015, adding to the mix a version of last year’s vintage that we aged in bourbon barrels for a year. This whopping, complex stout will cellar beautifully—if you can wait that long."
