Thanks for Brewer's Dinner help


May 30, 2019

I just wanted to thank everyone who helped make the Gourmet Brewer’s Dinner happen along with those who helped with the Beer Fest. The staff at the Fair was very supportive. It was Jessica Edwards’ last beer fest and she was nothing but wonderful this and each year I worked with her. Thank you to Jessica, Kari Johnson, Amanda Randles, Maddy Witek, and Amanda Painter.

A special Thank you to all the brewers, vendors and most importantly The Haines brewery.

Thanks you to all the Volunteers, Jenna Kunze, Betsy Shiner, Leah Wagner, The Plating Crew, The Servers and many more.

Thanks to Jason Eason and the kids at the High School for making all those awesome charcuterie boards.

Thanks to the Volunteer fire department for lending me the smoker and fixing it last minute.

A very special Thanks to my wife Rachel Kukull who baked all the bread for the event and worked a long week with me on her week off. Thanks to Peter McDonald, my long-time friend, who is leaving town. I’ll miss you Pete. Also Thanks to Kevin Comer, my former sous chef, who traveled up from Seattle and just plain made my life easy and stress free.

I moved to Haines because I believe that the people here are some of the most courageous people I have ever met. By Courageous, I mean generous, helpful, and supportive. Thanks for all the help. I had a blast.
