I got a couple of e-mails today that Jay Misson, the head brewer for Triumph Brewing in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, passed away today. He worked for Gordon Biersch for a time, training brewpub brewers, and I think I met him once during that period in his career. Lew Bryson, who knew him quite well, has a moving piece on his blog today.
Just raised a pint to him. Very sad. Super great guy 🙁
