Beer Birthday: Dick Cantwell

elysian
Today is Dick Cantwell’s 56th birthday. He’s the head brewer and co-owner of Elysian Brewing in Seattle, Washington, and the co-author of Barley Wine. In addition to brewing, Dick’s a great writer, too, and his work frequently appears in numerous beer magazines. He’s also on the BA’s board of directors and heads both the Communications and Pipeline committees. More recently, he’s moved to San Francisco, and spends part of his time in our fair city. Join me in wishing Dick a very happy birthday.

    Dick is one of my favorite brewers. Throughout his tenure in the brewing world, he has been a class act.

    Happy birthday, Dick, and many more!
