Tragedy Strikes at Redhook Ale Brewery in NH

Exploding keg kills Redhook Brewery worker | SeacoastOnline.com

It was reported earlier this morning on SeacoastOnline.com that a worker at the Redhook Brewery died this morning, when a keg he was filling failed when pressurized (which is part of the sanitizing process) and exploded. The article explains that the worker was unresponsive and in cardiac arrest after parts of the keg hit his head and chest.

Redhook spokesman Ted Lane stated that the brewery management is saddened by the incident and that the brewery would be conducting its own investigation after local police and the Federal agents from the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms complete their investigation into this tragic death.

We at Brew England would like to offer our thoughts to the coworkers, friends, and family of this young man and the rest of the Redhook Brewery family.

Please take a moment to read the article for more details.
