Today is also the birthday of Brian Stechschulte, former executive director of the San Francisco Brewers Guild, who then worked for Speakeasy Ales & Lagers as their Public Relations & Media Director for a time, but since late 2017 has been the Director of Marketing for Drake’s Brewing, although most recently decided to step back from working. I’m just guessing at Brian’s age, but by my reckoning he’s got to be about 44 this year. In addition to his regular work, he also wrote online at All Over Beer and Bygone Beer. Brian’s a terrific ambassador for beer and a great addition to the industry. I think of him as a kindred spirit. Please join me in wishing Brian a very happy birthday.
