I read today that the long-time brewer at Elk Grove Brewery, Bill Wood, is now on the brewer's deck at Auburn Alehouse helping out with Brian Ford. This is good for everyone in the area because Wood is an accomplished brewer we didn't want to lose and Brian could use a hand - the guy works his ass off.
Oh, how good is Wood? He recently brought home a gold medal from this year's World Beer Cup. Not a shabby pick-up for Auburn Alehouse. This may not be the most comforting news for those in Elk Grove, but hopefully you all can come up sometime and enjoy a pint of something brewed by someone familiar.
