Tribute – Olaf Schellenberg

Olaf passed away at the end of March. Although based in Glasgow, Olaf supplied imported German beer to the Great British Beer Festival and many CAMRA beer festivals in London. He sourced most of the beers directly himself on trips around Germany and supplied draught products, not just bottles. I think that it is fair to say that he broadened the knowledge of the varieties of German beer available to a new and appreciative audience. Certainly I recall that a number of people used to come to Battersea Beer Festival just to prop up Olaf’s end of the foreign beer bar.
