New York news...

For those of you who are lucky enough to have enjoyed Hutch Kugeman's brews at Great Adirondack in Lake Placid...you're about to be joined by a multitude. Hutch is leaving Great Adirondack (no worries; his former assistant Paul Fryman is returning from Snake River Brewing to take over) to become head brewer at Ithaca Beer Company, effective this weekend. Congratulations to Hutch and Ithaca: this is great for all involved. Looking forward to more success from all parties!

Lew, for the last frickin' time, it's the Ithaca Beer Company- not Ithaca Brewing! You of all people should know better. But seriously, we're excited to have a great brewer like Hutch come aboard. He'll really help ease the pain of losing Mike Smith. Mike's moving back home to State College after 3 great years with us in order to take on the Gamble Mill project. Expect great things from us all!

Sorry, Jeff...I fixed it!
Glad to see Gamble Mill getting a skilled brewer like Mike; thanks for cutting him loose!
