Michael Jackson has died.

Michael Jackson, Beer Hunter, has died. Gus Van Horn pays tribute to the man who did more than most to introduce the world to great beer.
Beer ... is not, as it turns out, simply a cheap way for numbskulls to get drunk. It is an endless adventure for the senses, a proud Western tradition, a gift produced by the happy union of art and science, a pleasant accompaniment to good conversation, and many other things besides. I have Michael Jackson to thank for making me properly acquainted with a drink that is both the product of the efforts of thinking men and a fitting reward...
