Today is the 40th birthday of Matt Bonney, co-owner of Brouwer’s and Bottleworks, both in Seattle, Washington. Bonney’s one of my favorite people in the industry. You’d be hard-pressed to find a person more passionate about good beer. He also knows how to throw a party and is always a gracious host. He does still need some work on his Washoe playing, but I’ll let that slide. Join me in wishing Bonney a very happy birthday.
