Today’s infographic is another look at how to pour a glass of beer, created by Lee Hultang, and apparently he based it on information from Beer Advocate. It originally ran in a story in the Montreal Gazette in 2008.
Today is the 63rd birthday of Daniel Bradford. Daniel is the publisher of All About Beer magazine. He’s been involved in the beer world for many a year, from the early days of GABF to the Brewers Association of America, which a few years ago merged with the Association of Brewers to become the Brewers Association. Join me in wishing Daniel a very happy birthday.
Today is the 59th birthday of Pat McIllhenney, brewmaster and owner Alpine Beer Co. near San Diego. Pat makes some amazing hoppy beers. Unfortunately, his beers are hard to find up our way, but rumor has it he’s building a bigger brewery to solve that problem. Join me in wishing Pat a very happy birthday.
Today’s infographic is another one from CraftBeer.com, the Brewers Associations consumer website. This one, an article entitled When Craft Beer Goes Bad, was penned by Andy Sparhawk, and included this infographic showing common beer defects and their possible cause.
Today is the 35th birthday of Abram Goldman-Armstrong, a Portland-based beer writer who does a column for Northwest Brewing News and also writes online at Brewsville. Abe also is the organizer of the North American Organic Brewers Festival and by day works in construction. When Abe was writing for the Celebrator Beer News several years back, during GABF we spent an evening drinking out and about the city eventually ending up at the Denver Diner, during which time I discovered I’d spent the entire evening calling him by the wrong name — d’oh. Anyway, join me in wishing Abe a very happy birthday.
Today’s infographic is a How To Pour A Pint, and was created by cartoonist Emily Sauter whose Pints and Panels includes her great cartoon beer reviews. The infographic below was used in a Bay Area Craft Beer post, So You Want to Have Craft Beer at Your Wedding, by John Heylin. Sauter provided the illustrations.
Today is John Maier’s 58th birthday. John has been the head brewer at Rogue Ales for as long as I can remember. He’s won countless awards, pioneered numerous new styles and been instrumental in the rise of the Pacific Northwest’s beer scene. Join me in wishing John a very happy birthday.
