Still Happy Times — From the time I was 18, till now at 60, I’ve had beer around to celebrate good times as well as heartbreak. Thankfully the good times overshadow the rest. Whether it was having a cold one with my dad, or my best friend of 34 years (my wife), or judging at a beer event, beer makes me happy. My taste has changed over the decades, but one thing is for sure: beer makes me hoppy… I mean happy!
