Brewmaster Crosses the Bar

10:00 AM -- Joseph Owades has died at the age of 86. Sadly, the obituary headline in the Washington Post identifies him as "The Father of Light Beer."

Were that his only claim to fame, your simian correspondent would have passed over his demise in discreet silence. One must turn to page 2 to learn that he also "helped craft formulas for Samuel Adams, New Amsterdam Beer, Pete's Wicked Ale and Foggy Bottom Beer."

So. Dr. Owades, lovers of REAL beer toast your life.
