We’re saddened by the loss of our dear friend, our frequent collaborator and presenter, community leader, and all around great human being, Will Hacker.

Our community has lost an important light. We will miss his kindness, his humor, his humility, and his ability to make everything he was apart of better.

May 9, 2016

Ever wonder how home brewers make their beer? Our pal, Stephen Strong, is a bit more than a home brewer—he’s more like a nano-brewer! Brewing beer is not quite a full time job for Stephen, yet he’s skilled enough that perhaps it should be.

We’ve been lucky to be friends with Stephen for years, and now he tells us how he does it! Enjoy!

We hope you enjoy the panel and don’t forget to get your tickets for Prototypes, Process & Play on August 11th and 12th!
