Beer Birthday: John Holl

beer-briefing
Today is the 34th birthday of John Holl, who’s a journalist that recently came over to the dark side full time; dark beer, that is. Originally on the staff of the Gray Lady — the New York Times — he’s now writing almost exclusively about beer from his home in northern New Jersey, and he recently took over as editor of All About Beer magazine. Online, he’s at Beer Briefing and his latest book is the American Craft Beer Cookbook. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know John during some travel over the last few years, from Denver to Boston, and even in Chile. He’s a great addition to the fraternity of beer writers. Join me in wishing John a very happy birthday.
