Beer Birthday: Jack Curtin

jack-curtin-toon
Today is fellow Pennsylvania beer writer Jack Curtin’s birthday. You can read his writings and rantings on a variety of subjects at his Liquid Diet Online, Curtin’s Corner, I Have Heard the Mermaids Singing and The Great Disconnect. If you think I don’t know when to stop, check out Jack’s voluminous output. Plus Jack is one of my favorite people to kvetch about politics with, over a pint, of course. Join me wishing Jack a very happy birthday.

Jack, at right, with fellow Pennsylvanians Don Russell (a.k.a. Joe Sixpack) and Lew Bryson. I’m originally from Pennsylvania, too. What is it about the Commonwealth and beer writers?

    Let’s not forget, in relation to PA, Jim Anderson, an early blogger and influential figure in craft brewing promotion (especially real ale festivals but I recall a radio spot as well). I understand Jim lives in Scotland where he runs a long-established hotel.
