There have been more sightings of the Loch Ness Monster than of Brian Hunt.

He seems sort of like a dick to me. However, I donít care if youíre Ty Cobb; brew great beer and Iíll pay you for it. Is Brian singlehandedly resposible for the beer style that is "Dark American Lager?"

I mean, was Josh afraid that Brian would hunt him down and cut his nuts off if Death and Taxes were classified as a Schwarzbier?

A little background... this all started when he looked up D& T at RateBeer and found it listed as a Schwarzbier for lack of a better bucket.

This was actually my personal classification at the time. He had a gripe I fully understood and could sympathize with (see my feelings on styles here ), we just couldnít accommodate his request at the time. The whole thing slowly devolved in a Brian (and Joel?) sort of way over the course of several years.

Iím not fully certain he understands that itís now classified as an American Dark Lager at RateBeer now. Thereís a bigger part of me that hopes he doesnít, as this whole thing has not quite run its course yet.

Hardest person to interview Iíve ever encountered.

We were having dinner with him one night, and Iím busily taking down notes about lager specifics while heís winking at Ali half the time to let her know heís totally messing with me. (She corrected me on the more important points afterwards, and he was kind enough to offer to proof the writeup for me, which was definitely helpful.)

An opinionated, outspoken, and incredibly talented brewer. Iím fascinated by the dude, and that video gets him at his most ornery. Which is only one facet.

Raleyís is a lot closer to his house. But the food is not as fancy as at Oliverís. :-)
