Greg Noonan, the craft beer pioneer who founded the Vermont Pub & Brewery in 1988 passed away October 11. He died in his sleep Sunday night. He was only 58 years old. His brewery was one of the first on the east coast, New England and, naturally, Burlington, Vermont. He’s not as well known for his contributions to the industry as he probably should be.
There’s a nice obituary by Guillermo Woolfolk, who’s the Birmingham Craft Beer Examiner.
He will be missed. Raise a toast to his memory.
