Larry Hartzog, legendary Northshore homebrewer and jazz enthusiast. One of the founding members of the Mystic Krewe of Brew homebrew club. He had an eclectic taste in music and never missed a day of Jazzfest. You could always find him dancing by the Fais Do Do stage, or in the Jazz Tent. Anyone who brewed with him knew he believed that the first thing you do, before you brew , is turn the radio on. He was a long time member of WWOZ and and loved all the music! He enjoyed Jazz from the Park , especially when Mike Gourrier was DJ., The World Journey, and Peggy Sue on Sat night.
