Today is Garrett Oliver’s 59th birthday. Garrett is the brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery and has done more for the craft beer industry to promote pairing food and beer than just about any other person alive. If you haven’t picked up a copy of his book, The Brewmaster’s Table, you should definitely do so. He was also tapped to be the editor of the Oxford Companion to Beer, which came out several years ago (and which I also contributed to). He’s the best-dressed brewer in the world and a great person. Join me in wishing Garrett a very happy birthday.

I just drank the collaboration between Garrett Oliver & Hans-Peter Drexler: fantastic beer. I really hope to meet Oliver someday. Happy Birthday!
Wow! July is an awesome birth month for brewers, no? Happy Birthday to all of us.
