HRN Hall of Fame: Charlie Papazian
Nominated by: Fuhmentaboudit!
Simply put, Charlie Papazian has made all of our beer loving lives better. Considered the “Godfather of Homebrew”, he is the Founder of the Association of Brewers (merging with The Brewers Association in 2005), the American Homebrewers Association, and the Great American Beer Festival. Without his book The Complete Joy Of Homebrewing, and infinite words of wisdom, “Relax, don’t worry, have a homebrew!”, many brewers may not have found a path to their vocation. Charlie is also founder of National Pie Day!
