Terry Hawbaker to leave the Bullfrog

Me and Terry in the barrel basement at Bullfrog.
The rumors are true: Terry Hawbaker is leaving the Bullfrog in Williamsport. The search for his replacement has begun. Terry is leaving for reasons of personal development; not a euphemism for anything else at all, he's just done all he can do in that arena. Williamsport, despite the Marcellus Shale boom and the galaxy of small breweries that have popped up in the area, is still Williamsport, and Terry's talents could get a better display, and perhaps more latitude for development, elsewhere.

What's he have lined up? Sworn to secrecy, I'm afraid, though I believe Uncle Jack has a piece to the puzzle (and I hope I get the nod to blab when it's time!). Should be good; trust me on that.

Do you know how long he has been at the Bullfrog?

Lew Bryson said...

A short six years, according to him.

I'm going to guess this has something to do with a new Philly-based brewpub project.

Rich Isaacs said...

That would be so awesome if true.

Much success. Have been lucky enough to visit Bullfrog on a few occasions. The beer has been tremendous, especially so with the Belgian inspired "beers gone wild".

Looks like you were possibly scooped Lew. I'll leave off the rumors unless you give the go ahead, but it's easy to find.

Actually Jack Curtain already spilled the beans. =)

Yeah, Terry e-mailed me around 4:30 with the news, but I was taking my daughter to a dentist's app't. I can live with it!

I called it earlier than everyone else, knew about this one a while back :)

Yeah, that's nice...now that we're done waving our "I had it first" dongs around...

Has there been a "badge" created for announcing/breaking news? sounds exciting ;-)
