As you may already know, our friend Christina Halstead, wife of County Durham Brewing Company owner/brewer Bruce Halstead, died on March 29 of a brain aneurysm. Her death was sudden and unexpected. Christina and Bruce attended our most recent CASK! Social at Harbord House the day before, and many of us are grateful to have had one last opportunity to speak with her before her untimely death. Christina was a lovely person, warm and caring, and was much loved in the beer world. There was no funeral, in keeping with her wishes. Our thoughts are with Bruce and the family.
