Here is what it feels like to be Mr. January:

“Being Mr January is awesome! Not only do I get to share the pages of the Steamy Men of Steam Whistle calendar with some of the manliest men in the beer industry, I get to do my part to say “f$&@ cancer.” All I had to do was take off most of my clothes, straddle Lumpy (our 1949 International Harvester pickup and my partner on the road), and wait for a breeze to make my locks flow. We did this project to raise money for The Ride To Conquer Cancer, and to show off some beautiful beer-drinkin’-bods. No airbrushing, photoshop, or manscaping, just real men being comfortable in their own bodies. The reactions of people who buy the calendars is priceless. Myself and the other “talent” get a real kick signing them in Steam Whistle’s retail store as we enjoy our after-work beers. It’s pretty funny to be recognized as Mr January at bars and beer festivals. I think this project not only highlights Steam Whistle’s support of cancer research, it highlights our commitment HAVING FUN.”

Way to go Ben. As seen below, he is getting to be quite a celebrity in the beer world as experienced over the weekend at the Roundhouse Winter Craft Beer Festival.
