The good Michael Jackson , the "Beer Hunter" has left us:
LONDON (AP) -- Michael Jackson, a leading world beer critic who praised the brews of Belgium and acknowledged he would never be as famous as ''that Michael Jackson,'' has died. He was 65.
He was one of my personal heroes. I mean, making a living by traveling around the world tasting beer? How can I get a gig like that?
Actually, he was a great writer who always found the best words to describe the essence of different beers. His website http://www.beerhunter.com/ is a great resource for those who want to know more about quality beer.
Pints will be hoisted in his memory at many a happy hour today (including mine).
