I just got word through the Vermont brewing community that Greg Noonan passed away in his sleep last night. He will be greatly missed. He was a true asset to the brewing community homebrew and professional alike.
Here's to you Greg.

Very sad news, indeed. I was just rereading his book on Scotch Ale.

Greg was the man... Hats off to him, and pints up... Truly, I owe a lot of my knowledge to his writing.

PROST GREG!

Wow, damn. That's a real loss for the brewing community. How old was he?

I have a TINY bit of smoked stout, a beer that was at least inspired by his, that I'll raise tonight.
