RIP Michael Jackson

No, not that Michael Jackson: this Michael Jackson, the Beer Hunter, passed away today, after suffering for years from Parkinson’s Disease. More than any other person, Jackson developed the language to talk about the finest beers in the world with the sophistication and appreciation formerly reserved for wine. See more here. Without him, the world may never have discovered the joys of Belgian beers. He will be missed.

  1. Oh no!

    I have fond memories of watching Jackson videos during college German. Such a great, knowledgeable character, and I hadn’t known he was responsible for giving notice to Belgian beers. A true loss.

    I’d love to see those videos again, but Netflix shockingly doesn’t seem to have them! Off to the library…
