RIP Peter Austen
« on: February 08, 2014, 06:30:23 AM »
No, I'd never heard of him before I read the obituary. But he is someone who has affected the lives of everyone who drinks beer.

He almost single handedly started the micro brewing business, here in the UK and in the USA. His contribution to the world has been entirely positive.

Thanks, Peter.
