  1. Why does it seem that no one ever talks about the devistating Peter Hand Brewery fire. I remember answering the phone call that told us there was a fire and my father was burned badly in it. My father is still alive still carrying the scars, and the trauma of the event.
    The man responsible for the fire felt so much remorse, after he came to see my father in the hospital, he took his own life and committed suicide because he was told my father would not survive. A senseless death, my father did survive. That fire was the real ending of the Peter Hand Brewery.
