Centralia, WA – I just got off the phone with Brewery Manager Derek Wilmot in regards to the passage of owner & brewer Dick Young of Dick’s Brewing Company. According to Derek this was Dick’s favorite time of the year since it was hunting season and already people are bringing in game to be smoked. Additional details will be coming soon regarding what you as a member of the craft beer community can do to help out.
From a personal observation I recall the brewery & restaurant being one of the few places in the region that you could get house made jerky, sausage, and sodas to-go. His impact will be missed by those enjoyed the specialty meats, sodas and craft beer throughout the years.
