Standing next to a glass of R.J. Rockers Buckwheat After Dark (Bad) Ale, Mark Sedar —the South Carolina brewery's national sales representative— wears a tee-shirt that expresses his (and many others') fervid belief: "Beer Is An Art."
Sedar might be better known to many 'north-western' Virginia good beer lovers as the past owner of the now closed beer and wine store, The Virginia Touch, in Berryville, Virginia. During its short but sweet run, the Virginia Touch was well-regarded as an oasis of good beer, and Sedar was well-regarded for his fierce dedication to local products and his welcoming manner. He and his wife still maintain the website as an on-line store for Virginia foods and items.
The photo was taken in Leesburg, Virginia, at the Northern Virginia Summer Brewfest, 25 June 2011.
