Beer Birthday: Martyn Cornell


Today is the 71st birthday of Martyn Cornell. Martyn is an English beer writer who writes online at the Zythophile. Martyn is one of my favorite brewing historians. His scholarship, research and skill are second to none. I had the pleasure of meeting him and sharing a few pints during a trip to Burton-on-Trent a few years ago, where we met up in London before taking the train north to Marston’s. And we’ve seen ran into each other a few times since then, including in Copenhagen. Join me in wishing Martyn a very happy birthday.
