“In Heaven, there is no Beer, so drink the Beer’s that’s Here.”
Somehow those words from an old German beer-drinking song came to mind when I read of the passing of the “other” Michael Jackson (“My name is Michael Jackson but I don’t sing, don’t drink Pepsi, and but write about beer”). Oh man, did he ever. The World Guide to Beer or, really, any of his books, are as good a reference as you can find when the subject is suds. Check out the elegant appreciation in today’s Guardian (nobody writes a good obit like the Brits), and the the amazing out, er…pouring from fans around the world on the Beer Hunter blogsite.
