Bill Brand, Beer Columnist: 1938-2009

Sadly, former Oakland Tribune reporter and What’s On Tap columnist Bill Brand died the evening of February 19th, at the age of 70, from injuries sustained in a Muni accident on February 8th. He was struck by an N-Judah at 2nd and King near the 21st Amendment Brewery, where he had been covering an SF Beer Week event. Extended obituary here, some appreciative notes here and here by Jesse and commenters at Beer and Nosh, and here’s the comment stream on the notice at What’s on Tap.
