Ben Harris, 26, had worked at Redhook Brewery
for seven years (since graduating from high school). His wife, Alysha, works in the brewery's restaurant. On Tuesday, he was putting air into a plastic keg to remove the beer when it exploded, sending debris into his face and chest. He was air lifted to the hospital, but later died from his injuries
Redhook immediately closed the restaurant and cancelled all future tours while OSHA investigates.
Alysha is expecting Ben's baby in a few months. Memorial contributions can be made to The Alysha Miller Harris Baby Fund c/o TD Bank, 20 International Drive, Portsmouth, NH, 03801, (603) 430-3812.
