The handsome guy in the photo is my great-great grandfather, Johann Georg Beck, a cider and wine maker from Aichelberg-Aichwald (near Stuttgart), Germany.
Grandpa Georg came to the US in 1864 as a teenager with his widowed mother and siblings, and lived a full and interesting life until his death, just before the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.
On April 11, 2004 I began tracking and writing down (by brewery) every different beer I tried (cans, bottles, samples, etc.). My first on the list was, appropriately, a bottle of Beck's (the real stuff, then still imported from Germany). As of 1/15/18, the count had reached 1,754
