Toasting the tastemakers

March 16th, 2007 | Posted by Real Beer

Forbes.com has put together a list of “Tastemakers” for wine, beer and spirits.

The list includes four beer guys: New Glarus Brewing co-founder/brewer Dan Carey, Boston Beer (Samuel Adams) founder Jim Koch, Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery (and plenty of beer writing) and Michael Jackson, the world’s leading beer writer. OK, he writes a little about whiskey, too, but we’re claiming him.

So, with apologies to Here’s to Beer, which one would you most like to have a beer with?

    Hmm, I can scratch Dan and Michael off my list, guess Garrett would be next in line!

    My vote goes to Jim Koch if he’s brining along Utopias.

    Stan — I realize, but I figure I’d best make the rounds first. Too bad Fred isn’t on the list, I could add him and Charlie too! I just like to name drop! ;-)

    And whenever I get to New Mexico and Pennsylvania…
