It’s always nice to see a former Fort Lewis guy doing good. So from the Times-Picayune comes a short blurb about Karlos Knott, a former Lewis soldier who founded the Bayou Teche brewer in Louisiana.

From the story:

Karlos Knott, the brewery’s founder, got a taste for quality beer while serving as an Army calvary scout in Germany. Later he was stationed at Ft. Lewis in Washington state, one of the hotbeds of American microbrews. He took up home brewing in 1994. When he came home, Knott and his brothers, who all live on the Arnaudville farm, created beers to compliment Cajun cuisine and launched Bayou Teche.

Félicitations, soldat.
