Today is the 43rd birthday of Kim Sturdavant. He was born in Eugene, Oregon and got his professional brewing start at Marin Brewing Co. before taking over at Social Kitchen & Brewery in San Francisco in 2011. While there he invented the Brut IPA sub-style, which was a popular type of IPA for a time. He left in 2019 and is now brewing at Pacifica Brewery. Kim’s a great brewer and a terrific person. Join me in wishing Kim a very happy birthday.
