All of the SF Beer Week events and we hope you too, where ever you are, will raise a toast to Bill Brand tonight at 7pm. Bill Brand, the Bottoms Up columnist for the Oakland Tribune and an all around great guy, was hit by a MUNI train last night on the way home from an SF Beer Week event. He is currently in critical condition. Check out the column over at the Brookston Beer Bulletin for more information and to keep up to date on his condition.

Our thoughts are with you Bill, and we will certainly raise a glass in your honor tonight. Here’s to a speedy recovery, sir!
