img_5659_1600x1067If any of you attended the History of Craft Beer discussion at during the St. Louis Craft Beer Week you’ll know that Henry is probably one of the most interesting and knowledgeable people in the St. Louis beer scene.  Henry is also one of the authors of the upcoming book St. Louis Brews, 200 Years of Brewing in St. Louis.

So, I thought it was important to let everyone know that Henry was diagnoses with pancreatic cancer and is currently in the hospital undergoing treatment. The good news is that his surgery to remove the cancer was successful, the bad news is that he’s still not able to drink any beer, the worse news he’s still in the hospital.

But with any luck, he’ll be out of the hospital in the next few days.  You can follow updates on Henry via a blog his family created to update everyone on his condition.  Please stop by and send some kind words to Henry, he’s a really great guy.

Also, be sure to check out a special label the guys at Schlafly created for Henry when he’s able to start drinking beer again:
