Today is also the birthday of Chuck Silva, former brewmaster at Green Flash Brewing in San Diego. His West Coast IPA has taken the world by storm, and personally, I love his Tripel and Le Freak. The big, shiny new brewery they recently built is also pretty amazing. But eventually Chuck wanted to something of his own, and is in the process of opening Silva Brewing Company in the Central Coast of California, around his native San Luis Obispo area.
Join me in wishing Chuck a very happy birthday.
