Today is the 51st birthday of Chris Nelson, better known as The Beer Geek. Chris and his wife, Merideth Canham-Nelson, recently completed an around the world beer festival tour, but are still traveling the globe searching for great beer. A few years ago his wife also published Teachings From the Tap, her account of the year they spent circling the globe visiting beer destinations. Join me in wishing Chris a very happy birthday.

I ran into Chris and Meredith in the parking lot at Calicraft in Walnut Creek a few months back. They were very nice to take a few minutes to chat with me before they went in. Happy Birthday Beer Geek!

Chris and Merideth are definitely two of the nicest beer people here on the Monterey Peninsula. Discretion Brewing was lucky to snag Chris as their beer ambassador in November.
