From Today's Washington Post:
Beer Connoisseur, Michael Jackson, Dead At 65 By Adam Bernstein
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, June 26, 2009; Page B04
Michael Jackson, 65, who was widely regarded as the English language's leading writer and authority on beer and who earned the nickname "the beer hunter" after his TV documentary of the same name, died yesterday at his home in London after a heart attack.
Mr. Jackson, a British journalist, was also dubbed the "Bard of Beer" as he hopped around the world to write, lecture and (to much envy) sample dozens of distinctive brews every day. His books, which many brewers used as reference guides, sold millions of copies and were translated into more than a dozen languages.
