Beer Birthday: Marty Jones

marty-jones
Today is my friend and colleague Marty Jones’ birthday, though how old the eternally young Mr. Jones may be is anybody’s guess. In addition to beer journalist, brewery rep., Marty is administrator of the Beer Drinker of the Year Contest, a musician, and much else. Join me in wishing Marty a very happy birthday.

    Despite the challenges, you made it another year! Wynkoop, Lisa and the beer world are the better for it! The Rolling Boil Blues Band too!
    Rock on, my friend and see you in SF for the CBC.

    Cheers, Tom

    Marty,

    From Pork Boilin’ Poor Boys to Great Unknowns, I dig the beer tunes, and the way you play both kinds of music — country and western.

    Happy birthday honky!

    And know I’m with you. Never give Brooks your age or social security number — even if you are getting those AARP letters.

    All the best,

    Bob T. (in the ATL)
