TRUE TO CRAFT
BY DEBORAH WYATT FELLOWS
Those of you who were reading Traverse in the early 2000s will remember the work of then staff photographer Brian Confer. Brian was, and I’m sure still is, an amazing artist whose landscape work still stands out as among the best we’ve ever run. Brian lived in Elberta and was a fabulous resource for life, food, people and creativity in Benzie and Manistee, well beyond photography. But even given that, I was initially really surprised when in June 2013 Brian and his business partner, Rick Schmitt, launched Stormcloud Brewing Company just a couple blocks from Lake Michigan in Frankfort
Of course, I shouldn’t have been. As Stormcloud has evolved it has embodied everything Brian brings to his work: Passion for the art of producing, for the community that enjoys it and for the role that craft plays in the life and landscape of our region.
Rick and Brian make great beer.
