Stillwater Artisanal Belgian-American "gypsy" beer brand, does not yet have/own an actual brewery, but instead uses brewing equipment at Dog Brewing in Westminster (the former Clay Pipe Brewing system/location), and also collaborates with brewers in Europe.
This did not prevent two enthusiasts from Indiana from trying to visit his "brewery." And catching him at his Baltimore-area home in his underwear instead.
As recounted in a series of e-mails and Facebook posts yesterday, "funny part is I was chillin' in my 'office' (aka dining room) in my undies! . . . I threw dirty jeans and a shirt on quickly . . . but don't start showing up at my door asking for beer & glassware! I already have enough people that do that.. hehe ;) " He reports that he was doing some accounting/office work around noon (the pleasures of working at home)..........
It's still somewhat unclear exactly how the enterprising duo actually located his place. According to Strumke, they arrived clutching a copy of the latest Mid-Atlantic Brewing News, which led him to assume the address had been printed in the brewery listings in the paper. That proved not to be the case, however, leading Strumke to start searching for publications or websites where his home address might have been listed as his business address. As of this typing, he still hasn't located it yet.........
(No, we're not telling you where he lives.)
