Craft Beer Industry Loses Longtime Brewer

Craft brewer Adam Kercheval died last Wednesday after a serious automobile accident two days earlier. A Wake was held in his memory yesterday at the Rose and Raindrop in Portland.

Adam was a longtime brewer at Alameda Brewhouse and Hair of the Dog, before moving to Hawaii a couple of years ago. He recently returned to Oregon and was the beer buyer for Whole Foods. There has been a Martin Family Benevolent account set up in his memory at Washington Mutual, account no. 3336520768.
