Monday’s ad is for Schmidt’s, but not the one you’re probably familiar with. This is Schmidt’s City Club from Austin, and not the Austin you’re familiar with, Austin, Minnesota. Yeah, that one. This one’s “always uniform,” “from barley field … to malt house … to Schmidt’s brewery.”
Today is the 40th birthday of Jonathan Cutler, brewmaster/owner of Piece Brewing in Chicago. His brewpub makes great pizza and even better beer. Plus, he’s a terrific, fun person. So join me in wishing Jonathan a very happy birthday.
