Today is the 72nd birthday of Danish beer writer and lecturer Carsten Berthelsen, who I’ve gotten to know judging at the Brussels Beer Challenge over the years. We also both judge the World Beer Awards, but in different parts of the world. The author of ten books, he hosts numerous tastings throughout the year, and is a fun person to go drinking with. Join me in wishing Carsten a very happy birthday.

Today is the 59th birthday of Mark Edelson, a co-founder and the managing partner of Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, a small brewpub chain that operates eleven brewpubs in the tri-state area of Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Mark’s been a vocal and active member of the brewing community, especially around his mid-Atlantic home but also through the BA, too. Join me in wishing Mark a very happy birthday.
