Pic(k) of the week: The Whole Gang

The Whole Gang (03)

A snapshot of a good-sized chunk of the current (and past) craft beer brewer community of the greater Washington, D.C. area.

l-r: The photo was taken at brewpub Mad Fox Brewing Company, where, brewers, beer industry members, and good-beer fans in the mid-Atlantic gathered to roast (and bid farewell to) Nick Funnell, a British-trained brewer who, for 17 1/2 years, had been the executive brewmaster for Sweetwater Taverns in northern Virginia. In addition to winning numerous awards, Funnell trained brewers who went on to success at Sweetwater and elsewhere.

30 January 2014.
Falls Church, Virginia.

  • Funnell will now be based in Portland, Oregon, as a representative for BSG Craft. More: here.
  • More photos from the evening: here and here.
  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of personal photos, often posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always, with a good fermentable as a subject.
