Today is John Maier’s 67th birthday. John had been the head brewer at Rogue Ales for as long as I can remember, though he recently retired. He’s won countless awards, pioneered numerous new styles and been instrumental in the rise of the Pacific Northwest’s beer scene. Join me in wishing John a very happy birthday.
