Beer Birthday: Dave Alexander

Today is Dave Alexander’s 52nd birthday. Until recently, Dave was the co-owner, along with his wife Dianne, of the world famous Brickskeller beer bar in Washington, DC. They’re sill rocking the beer world at their other beer bar: RFD. Dave’s also a crack lead guitarist who often plays with the Rolling Boil Blues Band. This year at CBC Dave and Dianne received the Brewers Association Recognition Award. Join me in wishing Dave a very happy birthday.

    Jay, Dave Alexander may be a crack bass player, but he I think he usually plays lead guitar with the RBBB. The time I heard him play at the CBC in Seattle in ’06 it was (blistering) lead.

    J: Craig be correct, sir. Dave is multi-talented and is a smoking lead player (Fender Strat) but will jump in on bass if necessary. He ad man!

    Cheers, Tom
