    I’ve known Sam and Marlene for almost thirty years and have gone on many beer adventures with them, the most memorable a trip to San Francisco for the Barleywine Fest at the Toronado. From what I can remember it was a ton of fun!

    Sam was one of maybe three people responsible for opening my eyes to the wet, wild, wonderful world of brew. I wish I had a nickel for every beer I’ve enjoyed with him.
    He was a true character and by this I mean true to himself. He was the genuine article.

    Hoist one for me, old pal…RIP…I will always value our friendship…Steve Z

    Sam was a true inspiration when we first began going to the Stuffed Sandwich. We often joked about why people were still drinking crap when great craft beers was available. We spent many happy hours learning about the many styles, including incredible Belgian beers. Sam will be sorely missed, but his inspiration and hard work will be long remembered in my heart.
