Rest in Peace Michael Jackson, no not that one...

Yesterday saw the passing of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The beer world lost it's Michael Jackson back on August 30, 2007. Now, while they share the same name, that is where the similarities end. Author Michael Jackson wrote many influential books about both beer and whiskey with such titles as "Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch" and "Michael Jackson's Great Beer Guide". I own, and have read a few of his books, and he is great about teaching you about the many different beers of the world, describing taste, giving comparisons to more commonly known beers and just doing an overall great job giving you an idea what each beer is all about. If you ever get the chance to check one of his books out, I would highly recommend it.
