Craft Beard-day: Grigori Rasputin

Today, January 22, is the day most agreed-upon as Grigori Rasputin‘s birthday. While he comes with all sorts of history—from being a mysterious Russian mystic to having a seriously dramatic death—he’s also featured in the CRAFT BEERDS book on one of my favorite Russion Imperial Stout labels, North Coast Old Rasputin. Plus, he’s the inspiration by one of my favorite beer-geek avatar on Twitter, @HomebrewChef.

A big cheers and Happy Birthday to you, Rasputin.
