    Michael Jackson has died. [​IMG] See details here. I'll have to raise a glass to him tonight.

    It's pretty obvious this guy had a deal with the devil. First, he was a beer critic.

    Second:

    Edit: There's no second. I misread the article.

    I heard about this earlier, and I am really sad.

    He was a great guy who will really be missed.

    Tonight I plan on lifting a few in his memory.

    RIP Beer Hunter. [​IMG]

    Indeed it's a sad day not only for beer connoisseurs but also single malt scotch connoisseurs. Michael along with publishing his beer hunter's guide, also published an exstensive guide to single malt scotch and was a regular contributor to Whisky Magazine. He will be missed.

    I've had the pleasure of meeting a couple times at brewers conferences, and have a few autographed books. He was a great beer writer, and a wonderful story teller as well. He will be missed.

    Time to head down to the cellar for a special beer. I have an artisanal framboise that has been cellaring for several years. I think tonight is the night.

    It's amazing to me that he's remembered more for his beer writings than for his music.

    I don't think it's that Michael Jackson.

    I hope he already knew that and was making a joke. One that I've heard for years.[​IMG]

    It's sadder yet when a person dies at such a young age with so many more decades left to enjoy hopping from Pub to Pub.

    Very sad.

    When I saw Michael Jackson I thought 'oh no' but then I read the article. Still sad even though I never heard of him, seems like the kind of person that you could have fun with.

    Yeah, the book was my first intro to Scotch (after Tyson's thread...)

    Saddening news. I'm raising a glass of my best scotch to him right now.

    I didnt really know the guy, or knew he was "the beer hunter"..but I'll drink some choice beers for him!

    This guy is totally unknown to me.
    I'll keep on drinking and enjoying beer as ever before...
