PITTSFIELD, MA -- For the second Saturday, a familiar face will be missing this weekend at Wandering Star Craft Brewery. ... Christopher Post, the 15-barrel brewery's founder and guiding light, lies in a Boston hospital recovering from a harrowing injury.

Post, 49, suffered second- and third-degree burns on both ankles on Easter while cleaning equipment at the 11 Gifford Street brewery.

This past week, Post underwent two surgeries in Massachusetts General Hospital's burn unit, after infection set in. Now, as he waits for skin grafts to take, Post offered this advice to craft brewers: "Go around and make sure all your clamps are tight. And next time, get out of the way faster."
