Correction time.  The caption on our KQED Belgian beer pub crawl story posted Wednesday (July 23, 2008) had a couple of mistakes.  Here’s the photo again and the corrected caption.

Niehuser’s wife won a bid on KQED for a Belgian beer pub crawl and gave it to her husband for his birthday. (Jane Tyska/The Oakland Tribune)

Also, in my Oakland Tribune/Contra Costa Times/San Mateo County Times/Hayward Daily Review column yesterday (Wednesday, July 23, 2008) I listed the wrong alcohol percentage for Russian River’s Blind Pig India Pale Ale. It’s 6 percent. Ken Gross was the first of many to point it out. Got the most excellent Pig confused with Pliny the Elder, which I also wrote about.

    William, I am trying to find Ken Gross mentioned in your correction article from 7/23/08. If it is indeed the Kenny I knew in Santa Cruz in the 1980’s, who married Teri and had Nicole, I need to share some bad news. My former husband, Gary Flood was killed in an automobile accident on 7/17/08 in Santa Cruz while visiting his kids. I want Kenny to know. Please forward my email address if possible. Thanks, C
