Good People Drink Good Beer

Posted on May 31, 2011

I'm in DC and it's Capital Beer Week. There is plenty to do before Savor kicks off this weekend. So, being a huge fan of Flying Dog and always trying to stop at Kramerbooks when I'm in town, it only made sense to stop by Flying Dog's Happy Hour at Kramerbooks. Flying Dog CEO Jim Caruso and Anita Thompson, widow of the late Hunter S Thompson were the guests of honor. Jim spoke about the passion he has for beer, the growth he's experienced with his company and his relationship with Hunter S. Thompson and Ralph Steadman.

As the great Hunter S. Thompson said, "Good people drink good beer". It's simple but very, very true.
