Congrats to Fred Block, a fellow Upstate Brewtopian, on being featured in an article in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal in today’s paper. I’ve known Fred since meeting him at my first Brewtopians meeting at his house last summer. He’s an extremely dedicated, award-winning brewer and does make some really good beer.
The article focuses on the Bottle Tree Beer Company brand he has created and how he approaches his homebrewing as if it were a commercial brewery, even though he doesn’t make any money from his brewing (yet).
The article also gives a shout out to my sister, Cheryl, for designing his logo. She’s a very good designer, so if any of you homebrewers out there want a logo or labels designed, let me know and I’ll get you in touch with her.
