    Looking for the opportunities he couldn't find in his native Germany, Henry came to Chicago in 1854. Many breweries were run by Germans and Henry quickly found a job. Ten years later, he returned to Bremen's St. Pauli Brewery, growing it into the largest and most profitable in the region.

    By 1873, he and partner Thomas May had established a thriving brewing empire. In 1876 the pair returned to America where their uniquely hopped and green bottled pilsner bearing Henry's (Heinrich's) last name, "Beck," won a first prize at the Philadelphia World Exhibition.

    On April 17, 2004, when I began my "tried it list" with a bottle of Beck's, that gold medal was still featured on the label. And, sadly, back when I started the list, Beck's was still made in Germany. (No comment.)

    By the way, my list (as of 11/13/13) was up to 1,595. Then I decided to stop tracking and start enjoying. So that's where it stayed.
