In memory of John White
Very sad news reached us today from the UK, where our friend, and craft beer ambassador, John White, has died. John was a true example for all of us in the beer world — an impassioned beer traveler with strongly-held opinions, who still managed to befriend everyone he met.
Like many of the people we’ve come to know over the years, John did not make his living in the industry, yet craft beer was his life. He traveled broadly in search of better beer, leaving behind a wealth of knowledge and insight, which he was always happy to share. We’re proud to have one of his photographs on our home page, in fact.
This July 4th, whatever you drink, we ask that you raise your glass in John’s honor. He will be missed, truly.
