We just heard some sad news from our friend Bryan Bendix (Diamond Knot Brewing) regarding a longtime friend of the Washington brewing industry — Jay Fairchild has passed away.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Jay’s many friends and his family. Here’s the news from Bryan:

My friend, Jay Fairchild passed away this morning at Seattle VA hospital at 45 years old. Jay was the former manager of the Parkway tavern in Tacoma, he also worked at Snoqualmie brewing and at Aviator Brewing in Woodinville. Jay had battled cancer for many years. Please raise a glass in his memory today.
