I’ve kept in contact with Willy Buholzer, Anheuser-Busch’s European hop purchaser who we met in Munich last month. I am writing a print article about him and we are planning on meeting up at Andechs on our next Germany trip in July.
To thank him for being so generous with his time showing us the Busch Farm Huell, the hop institute, and the Hallertau hop region, we sent him a Year in Beer t-shirt. In return, he sent me this picture. I think he looks pretty happy to be wearing it and we’re proud to have such a nice guy spreading the word about thebeergeek.com.
