Beer Birthday: John Hansell

Today is the 54th birthday of John Hansell, publisher of Malt Advocate, the whisky magazine in America, which also puts on WhiskyFest in several cities, including San Francisco. John’s a terrific person I don’t see nearly often enough. Join me in wishing John a very happy birthday.

    Hope your birthday was stupendous. All Hansells are not so backward. Love: Harrison’s kid. He loved whiskey! Gives me quite a headache but you certainly turned me on to good beer!❤️
