My friend and neighbor Tom Sparks asked me to help him out on this great piece about beer for that got picked up by ABC! Sadly, he didn't get to see it because just weeks later on November 5, he passed away from a stroke at age 33! The day we shot this was filled with beer and laughter, as most of my time was with Tom. He will be missed. Please check out his piece called "Cheers, Being A Healthy Beer Drinker."

Tom's stroke was caused by a condition called antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), a disease that causes unnatural clotting of the blood. If you would like to donate to the APS Foundation of America, the only nonprofit organization in the country dedicated to bringing awareness to APS, go to

  1. Aw, it is sad to hear about the passing of Tom. I'm not familiar with his work, but his piece here was awesome.
