"Reverend Bobby" Kittrell passes away

Word has belatedly reached Baltimore that one of the original brewers of the Baltimore-area microbrew renaissance of the 1980s, William Robert "Reverend Bobby" Kittrell, whose resume included stints at Oxford Brewing, The Wharf Rat, and Sisson's, Stone Brewing in California, and then several Chicago-area breweries including Goose Island and Moonshine, passed away in Chicago this past April at age 51, reportedly of cancer.

More here.  Photo of him at Sisson's ca. 1997.
