Michael Jackson (3.27.42 -- 8.30.07), R.I.P.

Michael Jackson died a couple of days ago. No, the other Michael Jackson. The one that I actually would have enjoyed having a drink with--the "beer hunter" Michael Jackson.

I learned a lot about beer from that man. He wrote a lot of good stuff, much of which could be classified as travel writing, that revolved around finding the world's best brews and whiskeys.

In his honor, I will read everything that he's published about whiskey as well. That was another one of his areas of expertise.

He died at home at the age of 65. He had suffered from Parkinson's for at least the last ten years of his life.
