Beer Birthday: Mark Silva

Today is the 51st birthday of Mark Silva, co-founder of, one of the first beer portals to establish a presence on the internet. I’ve known Mark for a lot of years in a variety of enterprises. These days, I usually run into Silva at beer events, though sadly not as often as I used to. Join me in wishing Mark a very Happy birthday.

One of my favorite photos of Don Younger also features Mark at the Falling Rock in Denver during GABF.
