Gretchen Schmidhausler took Basil T's beers to the top of the craft beer podium while laboring in the brew room of that fine restaurant in Red Bank. Her duties have since been assumed by Mike Sella, who continues the tradition of fine craft beer in Vic Rallo's classy pub. But Gretchen, recently married, has embarked upon a new career. Always one of the most personable and knowledgeable in the beer arena, The PubScout encourages you to check out this new site of hers. Her beer calendar is a must-have for any NJ beer nut (makes a great Christmas present, too!), and you can order it directly from her site. When it comes to beer, she's "been there, done that."
Ya gotta respect a woman who actually shared a pint with Norm from Cheers. If he tasted her beer, I'm sure Norm did.
The PubScout wishes Gretchen all the best!
