Here’s wishing my dad, Jack, a very happy birthday–with thanks for bringing the craft beer movement to the United States–slainte! Think I’ll celebrate with some Jack and Ken’s Ale! Raise a toast with me, craft beer lovers!

I think we will do the same- I have one bottle of Jack & Ken’s left in the fridge and I was planning to share it with my brother and his wife. Sounds like tonight’s the night.

Happy Birthday, Jack. I’ve spoken often about how much craft beer has brought to my life, and I recognize that you were a pioneer that made that possible. Thank you just doesn’t cut it, but thanks all the same!

Thank you, Other Renee 🙂 I will share that sentiment with him!

Discovering craft beer certainly changed my palate, if not my life. Cheers to you, Jack.
