On Tuesday July 3rd the TrAils to Ales Brewery lost a dear friend in Dennis Robert Kerekanich. Whether you knew Dennis well or not, or just while talking with him wondered what was rolling around in his head, Dennis had a larger-than-life personality! Dennis had an unmatched talent for space, texture and color. If it could be figured out, Dennis would do it. Dennis loved the brewery and made it his own. His work and ideas are all through the final product. From the floors, to the shelving, to the bar, Dennis did whatever it took to complete the project. Dennis put in hours of work above what we could have ever asked and we were pretty sure he was going to get it back in beer soon had he not died Tuesday. So this Tuesday July 10th at 5pm we are opening our doors and paying it forward with a benifit for Dennis and his family to help cover the cost of his funeral and family travel. 100% of the proceeds and donations will go to Dennis’s family. Please join us in celebrating the life of DRK. And if you want to offer a toast, his favorite beer was the Red. Or as Dennis would describe it... the “OMG that’s good Red!” See you there.
