Today is the 61st birthday of Chris Erickson, Director of Brewery Operations for Snake River Brewing. He’s been at the brewery for over twenty years, and I first met Chris at a GABF almost as long ago, and twice this year we judged together. Chris is a great brewer and helped put Snake River on the map, twice winning Small Brewery of the Year. Join me in wishing Chris a very happy birthday.
