    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. He came to the US in 1864 as a teenager with his widowed mother and siblings, and lived a full and quite interesting life until his death 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 9/18/17, the count had reached 1,743
