No, not that Michael Jackson; and not that King of Beers. British journalist Michael Jackson, pictured here, is credited with giving beer a level of credibility that resulted in, among other things, the microbrew movement and the international availability of Good Beer. He has died, aged 65.
While his writing was often hokey and persnickety (at the same time!), still one had to admit he was usually right on. And seriously, if it weren't for Michael Jackson, we'd be stuck drinking that other King of Beers, alas still alive and well.
Thanks for the headsup, Jeff Moore
