Almost exactly one year ago, I reported the welcome news that old friend Ron Downer was getting back into commercial brewing.
Ron Downer to brew at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee.
... Ron was a prolific homebrewer before turning pro, and so starting small at Blackberry Farm prior to growing the brewery should be right up his alley.
It appears that Ron's hope of bringing his new brewing operation up to cruising speed is bearing fruit, if not blackberries, as evidence by this Q & A chat at the Brewers Association community page.
A toast to Ron Downer.
