    I didn’t know Brian but a frequent patron and enjoyed his Camano Island and Mukilteo Restaurants. My Deepest Sympathy to his Family.

    I haven’t seen Brian in several years since I now live in Wichita. I remember when he first opened up the brewery behind Cheers II in Mukilteo. He will be greatly missed.

  3. Peter Paiya says:

    Brian was one of the most innovative people I have ever meet. He would listen to peoples hair brained ideas and pull root value out and focus it in a productive and positive way. As it can take a wide variety of ingredients to make a really good beer, I never saw or heard of Brian belittling any of his acquaintances.

    The guy was always a shining light in my eyes.

    In the early days of Diamond Knot Bob and Brian championed the creativity of their patrons.

    This is something they have never lost.

    One thing I particularly enjoyed was during the 90’s.

    The open mic activity.

    By hosting the, at the time lucrative event, the place had a steady stream of local and visiting musicians that traveled as far away as Eastern Washington to perform on Wednesday nights. Some of the performers had national recognition.

    Brian will always be remembered by me and all the people that have really got to know him, as a friend and a great proprietor. He was a great person.

    He was known as a pretty fucking smart dude at Boeing too!!

    Thanks to all the people and events that made Brian the man he was.

  4. Roland Struyve says:

    Although I haven’t seen or spoken to Brian since I left Boeing and Seattle 10 years ago, I cherish the memories I have of all the fun Brian and I had in our early days of brewing. I am very sad to hear that Brian has left us and I now wish I had made contact with him sooner. Best wishes to his family and all the folks at Diamond Knot.
