In remembrance of Fred Eckhardt, 1926-2015

Beer industry icon Fred Eckhardt passed away on Monday, August 10, 2015. He was a writer, authoring titles such as The Essentials of Beer Style and contributing to Celebrator magazine.

‘Fred Eckhardt was a friend, educator and lover of all things beer. Ever the iconic appreciator, he was also a veteran and a leader of the U.S. homebrewing movement,’ said Bob Pease, Brewers Association CEO. ‘As an author and one of the best beer spokesmen ever to represent the beverage, he inspired many and will be greatly missed.’
