Michael Jackson was the name of a most excellent fellow who was one of (if not the
) world authorities on your favorite and mine, beer
. He wrote about his travels around the world, and wrote up all his experiences meeting new brew
s (and old friends) so that you or I may purchase our imported suds in style and confidence. His column was made into a television series for I believe A&E
named Beer Hunter
(Not to be confused with the game of the same name made popular by Bob & Doug McKenzie
Actually, the lucky bastard not only traveled in beer, but in single malt scotch as well, having written one of the authoritative guides on the subject. I want his job.
Michael Jackson passed away on August 30, 2007 in London at the age of 65.
