Today is the birthday of Michelle Wang, who is the editor of the only craft beer magazine I know of published in China, Hops Magazine. We had a chance to meet several years ago during a press junket to Antwerp that we both attended, along with some other beer journalists, and our paths have since crossed several more times. It also great seeing her and hearing about the growing beer scene in China. Join me in wishing Michelle a very happy birthday.
