If he was there in the 2000 time frame, then I probably know him. I started patronizing that place back in 1990 when I first started making beer (it was off of Central Expressway then in a tiny little store). It was owned by another guy at the time. I think he sold it off apparently to become a pilot or something like that. The new guys took over, moved to the present location and totally upgraded everything. Glad to know they are still going strong. It will be the first place I hit once I get my equipment set up.
