Beer Birthday: Marty Jones February 17, 2023 By Jay Brooks Today is my friend and colleague Marty Jones’ birthday, though how old the eternally young Mr. Jones may be is anybody’s guess. Marty’s a beer journalist, brewery rep., musician, and much more. Join me in wishing Marty a very happy birthday. Marty toasting me at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. Marty at GABF in 2008.

Tom Dalldorf says
Despite the challenges, you made it another year! Wynkoop, Lisa and the beer world are the better for it! The Rolling Boil Blues Band too!
Rock on, my friend and see you in SF for the CBC.
Bill Howell says
Congratulations on making it another year. Best wishes for many more.
Bob T. says
From Pork Boilin’ Poor Boys to Great Unknowns, I dig the beer tunes, and the way you play both kinds of music — country and western.
Happy birthday honky!
And know I’m with you. Never give Brooks your age or social security number — even if you are getting those AARP letters.
All the best,
Bob T. (in the ATL)

Happy birthday Marty! You still looked forever young behind your guitar at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret. Must have been the lyrics, or perhaps the floor show…
