Farewell To A Monster Of A Cat

We're very sad to learn of the passing of one of our all time favorite brewing personalities, Monster the Brooklyn Brewery's resident greeter and environmentally friendly exterminator. We've enjoyed Monster's company many times over the years, often times sneaking him some high grade homegrown organic catnip!
One of our favorite "Monster moments" was when setting up for a Malted Barley Appreciation Society homebrew contest at the Brooklyn Brewery. We had just finished placing fresh pitchers of water at about 20 tables for the judges, only to turn around and see that Monster had followed behind us, "testing" each pitcher!

Refilling the 20 pitchers would have ecologically imprudent (and a pain in the ass!), so, on that day, there was a little Monster in all of us!

You'll be missed, Monster.
