Doug Hindman is head brewer at Elliott Bay Brewing, a very active member of the Washington Brewers Guild, and a good friend of the WBB. He is currently on vacation in Germany. Bastard! Of course, no brewer worth his weight in gypsum could visit das Mutterland without spending ample time touring breweries and otherwise emersing himself in that country’s great brewing tradition.
Doug is keeping a blog as he stumbles from one bierhaus and brauerei to the next. We are happy to link to it here. http://elliottbaybrewing.blogspot.com. We encourage you to live vicariously through him. You might just learn something. So go read his blog! Schnell!
