Here we are, one year later. I do miss him very much. He still is a big part of our community here at the Alembic Club.

Yesterday I received a kind email from Paul's friend David that I would like to pass along:


Hi all friends of Paul .... yes, indeed it's already one year ago that Paul left us all into another Music World - hopefully the one which cares of us all !!!!

Many thanks of you all to remember him in Memorial Remembrance and Tribute of the Alembic Guitar.

Keep the circle warm ....

Yes, Paul is missed by all who knew him. Our Alembic Family was blessed to have him. He was a kind and gentle soul. We'll raise a glass of Zinfandel in his memory tonight.

To Paul...

He reminds me of a different time. I was a first time father and first time Alembic owner...new to both and the club as well. He embodied everything this place was about - comradery, compassion and good natured ribbing. It was somewhere to come for information and to share experiences and stories with people with whom you had a common bond - a love for music and Alembics. He may have had his stockings always at the ready but he never got his knickers in a twist.

He is missed...

A day late - but BBT was raised in honor and respect, followed shortly by a second!

BBT = Blatz Brown Triangle - kinda like Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) but it's brown and has a triangle logo and is a Blatz :-p

A bit TOO late i'm afraid, but i raised a glass as well for Paul (aka "Palembic").
I DO KNOW that i'm not much of a poster here, but i DO realize that Paul was a member who was VERY popular here (and elsewhere, i'm sure!).
God bless you, Paul!!

Just yesterday, I had a glass of Lindemans kriek beer - cherry scented lambiek - not sure about the exact relation between "lambiek" and "alembic", but there must be something. (Also, lambiek is one of the beers that can improve with age.)

I seem to remember Paul was related to the brewery family. Very nice, artisanal beer - tasted like real cherries - sweet and sour.

To life, to Paul!

Happy Birthday Paul!

I just got a Skype message that it's your birthday. It's just turned June 15 over on your side of the Atlantic, and I guess your account is still active. It was a bit of a surprise at first, but then I guess it's just like you to pull something like that!

So happy birthday my friend. You continue to be an influence and inspiration to so many of us here at the club; and we thank you for that.

Cheers!

I can't begin to keep track of how often Paul's words and/or attitude pop into my head as I go about my daily business. Of course, most of it I am compelled to keep to myself! :-)

Hope the family is doing well, and that Broomstick and Bonnie are getting plenty of love..

I find myself constantly quoting Paul's mantra:

"There will always be another".

He was a wise and wonderful human being and I feel very lucky to have met him in person when he graced us with his presence at the Northern California Gathering.

Inspired by New Glarus's Abt & Lost Coast's Brother Thelonius, as well as by Mr. Lindemans, I am trying to work up a recipe for a Trappist Quadruppel ale; if it turns out well, I'm planning on naming the recipe Brother Paul (I'm trying do it so that certain malts will have ratios of 1:5, 1:5).
