Beer Birthday: John Mallett

bells
Today is John Mallett’s 49th birthday, John is the production manager at Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a post he’s held since 2001. John has a great sense of humor and I recall a particularly side-splitting kvetching evening-long conversation with him and Fal Allen at CBC in San Diego a number of years ago (not the most recent one). John me in wishing John a very happy birthday.

    Have a happy one and thanks for your ear at NHC. I think things may work out with the guys in Kalamazoo. They’re amazing and I really appreciate the help. Salute~
