Brad Clark should be a name that rings a bell. I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with Jackie O’s, for which he was head brewer and director of brewing operations since 2005 (basically the beginning of Jackie O’s). He recently left, but there was no animosity in the split – Clark simply wanted to be closer to his then fiancé (now wife) Adair Paterno (of Sante Adairius Rustic Ales). Naturally, he decided to start a new brewery called Private Press.

So here we are at the end of another year. And what a great year it was… to drink! We were fortunate enough to be able to try a wide variety of beers, from locally, to domestically, to internationally brewed.
