Michael Jackson Has Died

No, not the creepy pop singer.  Michael Jackson was a writer who has played a major role in evolving beer culture in the US and abroad.  He wrote extensively about the history of beer, development of brewing and styles of beer.  He was a big influence on the revived microbrew culture in the US. 
 
He had been suffering the effects of Parkinson's disease for over a decade, Jackson's health problem was only made public in 2006.

I've always found brewing fascinating, and I have to say, if I could get a job as a brewer, I would absolutely take it.  There's something about the craft that draws you.  I think Jackson understood that, and helped bring that to the masses in his writing and passion for beer.
