Happy Birthday Beer Man

December 14, 2009 | admin

My buddy, Dan de Carbonel, is celebrating his birthday today. Many years ago, he and I started the first ever newspaper craft beer blog at the Statesman Journal in Salem, Oregon. Rather than getting paid for our work, we would blog for beer, thus the name, “Will Blog for Beer.” The blog is long gone, along with many other innovations we pioneered back in the new digital days of journalism, but it remains one of my fondest memories of my journalism career. So, happy birthday Dan. I hope this finds you well wherever you may be.

Prost,

GG
