YFGF in the press, thanks to Joe Gold!

This photo —in cropped form— appears on the back page of the current issue of All About Beer Magazine (Vol. 32, #3):

Gold & Cizauskas

On the left, that's Joe Gold —founder and co-organizer of Baltimore Beer Week— with me (Yours For Good, on the right. He's carefully clutching the Star-Spangled Banger, the Week's official cask mallet.

The photo was snapped by Dominic Cantalupo —a fellow organizer of Baltimore Beer Week— at the Week's official kick-off party, hosted by the Brewer's Association of Maryland (BAM), at the Pratt Street Ale House, in October of 2009, the first year for the Week.

In the magazine, the photo accompanies an essay by Joe Gold, entitled:
Is it the Culture-Or the Beer?

Gold discusses his youthful adventures in London, England, at Young's Brewery, now closed (it's operations moved to Charles Wells Brewery). Last year, Gold wrote a similar piece, for YFGF, in which he recounted his first-ever experience with cask-conditioned ale, at Young's.

A thank you to both Joe and Dominic, and to All About Beer.

  • Joe Gold is currently the National Sales Manager for Heavy Seas Brewing, of Baltimore, Maryland.
  • Caveat lector: As a representative for Select Wines, Inc. —a wine and beer wholesaler in northern Virgina— I sell the beers of Heavy Seas.
