Fred Eckhardt

As some of us know, Fred Eckhardt passed away Aug. 10th.

Thanks for all your work in sharing what you loved with all of us, even giving us one of the first glances at how to make Sake at home.


He was a pioneer. And he’s also the one that first put the ‘bug’ in my ear about doing ale as a ‘solera’, almost 36 years ago. This year, my Christmas ‘solera’ ale will reach it’s 25th consecutive year of topping up with reserved brew from every prior year.
