Today is the 30th birthday of Megan Flynn, publisher of what was originally Beer Northwest, a magazine focusing on beer in the Pacific Northwest, but which has been rebranded Beer West and widened its focus to include northern California — yeah! She’s done a wonderful job with her quarterly publication, though I may be slightly biased as I’ve done several articles for her. She’s also a terrific person and a great personality for the craft beer industry. Join me in wishing Megan a very happy birthday.
