Brewing is good medicine for Hazel Dell’s Ron Muck

In February Ron Muck of Hazel Dell won the People’s Choice award for his American pale ale with juniper and star anise at Mashfest, a private Vancouver home-brewing festival and competition.

It was a big win for Muck, who suffers from a rare auto-immune disease called inclusion body myositis. After he won, he also got a chance to have his recipe mass-brewed for the Who’s Your Daddy? brewfest. You can also try his beer, called Muck*U, on tap at the Old Ivy Taproom, 108 West Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver, 360-696-0012..
