Longtime brewer Teri Fahrendorf has formed a loose network of brewers who have been burned on the job. Teri herself was severely burned in an on-the-job brewing accident. Ten years later she documented her experience at her web site (terifahrendorf.com/burn-article.htm). It has now been 20 years since she earned that badge of courage.
Recently a new brewer who was burned across 60 % of his body contacted Teri. His struggle to recover and his courage to overcome his fears and resume his brewing career motivated her to for the network for others in the brewing community.
