R. I. P. Michael Jackson

Beer geeks everywhere are in mourning today upon hearing of the passing of the #1 Beer Geek in the World, Michael Jackson (no, not the pedophile), also known as The Beer Hunter, last night at his home in London.

Jackson wrote what is considered the Bible of Beer Geekdom, The World Guide To Beer, along with several other books on good beer, good scotch, and good whiskey.

So, let's raise a mug in remembrance and in honor of the Beer Geek's Beer Geek. Cheers, Michael!

  1. His influence is impossible to calculate.

    I read a story about him last night about an NPR interview he did. They asked him how much money he spent on beer and Mr. Jackson replied:

    "Nothing, I haven't bought one in years."
