Beer Birthday: Don Russell

Today is fellow beer writer Don Russell’s 60th birthday. Don writes a beer column for the Philadelphia Daily News under the nom de plume Joe Sixpack. He also writes a blog online, Beer Radar. His most recent book, What the Hell Am I Drinking?, was published last year and can still be ordered directly from the author. Don recently became the executive director of the Garden State Craft Brewers Guild, the trade group for New Jersey breweries. Don is also a fellow Pennsylvanian, a crack card player, and one of my very favorite people to share a beer and discuss the issues of the day with. Join me in wishing Don a very happy birthday.
