Meet the Brewer
In 1997 Stumptown was open and upon permit approval (four years later) we needed to find the right brewer.
When I met Kruger he told me he could brew. "Of course you can brew", I said, "but can you teach me to brew?"
"I could teach a monkey to brew", he replied and was hired on the spot.
I then began my brewing apprenticeship.

Towards the end of 2005, after four (long) years of following Kruger around like a bad smell,
we kicked him to the curb (or perhaps he got a better offer ... it was a while ago).
