2013 Keynote Speaker: Bill Metzger
The 2013 Ohio Brew Week keynote speaker will be Bill Metzger. Bill began to brew his own beer in 1988. This decision came after years of traveling to different countries and regions of the United States under the guise of sampling the native beers there. Bill’s love of travel—and beer—led him to realize that he needed to know more about the brewing process. His first successful beer was a Nut Brown Ale, made from a kit.
Warm Fuzzy is a Tropical Stout-style, a part of the Foreign Extra Stout category. 7.5%; a combination of English pale, chocolate, roasted, and crystal malts. On the sweeter side of the spectrum, not cloying, a rum-like/molasses flavor, estery. Smooth with no hop flavor.

‘It’s been quite some time since we’ve attended The Great Taste of the Midwest…glad to be back. In fact, it’s been such a long time (2002), I forgot how delicious it is. First off, I want to thank the organizers and volunteers – TOP NOTCH. We were basically cold-called to attend. I can’t, and never would turn down such an honor of an invitation. Heat and humidity were peaked out, as were the mosquitoes. Who cares! The landscape, beer, and untouchable Midwest vibe certainly wiped out the little quirks. We had a few Ohio breweries in attendance. Buckeye, Ohio Brewing, Great Lakes, Fat Head’s, and Sam Adams (Cinci). 100+ breweries in attendance. What I suggest is this. Attend next year, bring your bike, and enjoy the day on Sunday. The city is amazing. Great restaurants. The breakfast place near the Capitol is killer. Great people. Thank you ‘Great Taste’ and Madison, WI. More more thing, the farmers market on Saturday is to die for, I’ve never seen anything like it – hard core, Garin.’
