This is a hard one. Today would have been the 46th birthday of Matt Bonney, formerly of Brouwer’s and Bottleworks, both in Seattle, Washington, and later proprietor of Toronado Seattle. Bonney was one of my favorite people in the industry. You would have been be hard-pressed to find a person more passionate about good beer. He also knew how to throw a party and was always a gracious host. Unfortunately, he unxpectedly passed away in late March of last year. Join me in drinking a toast to Bonney tonight. He is definitely missed.
