He has even created a great beer using the ingredients of Natty Boh and reconfigured it to be an amazing libation, known as his “premium,” which is light-years better than the former. His brewing company, Stillwater Artisanal Ales, has taken off so rapidly that he has even launched a restaurant called Of Love and Regret where you can enjoy many of Brian’s concoctions. What this man does with the hops and the barley is to combine not merely to cause intoxication but to elevate the beer palate to heights of ecstasy.
